..but not too good. It looked like you rushed most of it... the lightning, the movements, the backgrounds, all of it. But I liked the text effects, well made :).
Remember, next time you make a movie, work harder, don't rush it!
Keep up the (good?) work!
You did this for a competition on P-F, right?
Good job, everything was well made. But wasn't it a bit too short? Well, nevermind..
The backgrounds was great, and the sounds and music was perfect chosen. I hope you'll make the next part soon.
Keep up the good work, and have a nice day!
This isn't your best movie on NG, but I'll review it anyway :).
You did a good job with it but i think you rushed some things, like some movements and the backgrounds.. but keep praticing, you'll be great in no time :)!
Just like the review below...
..stop dissing yourself! You are very talented.
I learned much after watching this, and my art-skills will improve in no time :) (I hope so).
Graphics - the graphics are 9/10 . Your drawing-skills are almost proffesional! Keep improving :).
Sound - I'm not really in to Maroon 5, but the song fits very well.
Anyways, I'll be waiting for more art tutorials from you.
Keep up the good work, and have a nice day!
OK, it was good.... but you should really tell that this tutorial was made for flash 8 .... cause there is no filter in the other flashprograms, only in flash 8. Well..well . Good work, man :) .
yeah. i think i mentioned somewhere in there that it was for flash 8. the title of it wass meesed up. it was supposed to give the thought that it was a 2005 version of flash. lol. not that it was made in 2005. sorry
Hey, you really did a great job with this.I can say, it was a little bit too easy, but it was fun at all. Just try to make some more details at your sticks, and pratice some animation, and i think that the follower (If you gonna make a follower :) ) will be Awsome . Keep on praticing
((And, try put some sounds in it too))
Would *bittersweet' be an accurate explanation?
Hey it's me again! When I first read about the the Orchestral NAC I was actually thinking "Man, NP should join this. Now that would be truly epic" and I was considering telling you about it, although I soon figured you might be busy with other stuff :p. Still, it's great that you found your way and time for this competition!
What the reviewer below claims to put him off, is in my ears very interesting. It makes the song 'bittersweet' (once again, that's the only word I can find that fits the emotion I want to express...). Personally, I feel like the main theme is the bright part you use in the beginning and constantly relate to throughout the song (first repeated at around 1:17). While the song for the most part is pretty dark, which imo is relating to your situation with the hospital, the main theme is constantly trying to fight it's way through the darkness that this song expresses. At the end light overcomes dark and once again you hear the bright main theme, although ending in the tonic chord of the minor parallel key but in major rather than minor (wow I don't know how to discuss music theory in English. I would be able to make more sense of it if you were Swedish, haha), which makes the word 'bittersweet' come to mind once again. Very abstract explanation but meh, I hope it makes some kind of sense at least :p.
Ah well, enough with my stupid intepretations :D. Great work on this track and I hope you make it into the top 8 of the competition!
Hey tiger! Thanks for the detailed review. Your English music theory is spot on - it's funny because some of of the music I wrote out paying attention to the theory and some I just "felt" like the end chords. Your comments about the "hope vs darkness" resonate with me, but I'm not sure myself if the end represents the triumph of hope, or more of an acceptance of darkness. I think the end was inspired by the Chopin noctunes where he has a "departure of the soul" dying phrase. Ok wow I just read this and feel like a music nerd ;) thanks for helping me reflect on this a little more.
It's really fun that you are experimental in your musical creating! This is one crazy mix between DnB and chiptune, and it works out really really well!
I like how the intro is entirely based on chiptune sounds - even the drums sound like they come from a NES game (which is awesome of course!). An improvement would be a better transition from intro to the "verse" or whatever you would like to call it :). When the DnB drums kick in I'd personally like to hear some more force in it, and a good way to do this is to add some cymbals and more percussion. Another way to lay more emphasis on the transition could be to let the drums gradually build up and then go into the verse. There's a lot of ways you can do this and it's all personal. It's by no means bad as it is right now, but personally I would add a little more force to the transition :).
I like your little bridge starting at 01:08 with the piano and the strings followed by an 8-bit lead synth. It's a really smart thing to do, adding a little variety to the song :). Dude, I as the crazy person I am utterly blown away by the use of glitch drums in the bridge. I freaking love it man! Did you happen to listen to a few Lawn Wake songs before doing this? Those songs contain some of the craziest drum patterns I've ever heard :p.
At the next bridge/stick/whatever @ 04:06 I see you're doing some more crazy drums. It sounds really awesome here aswell, but I think you should turn down the volume just a little because when the drums kick in there you can't here the mellow bass anymore. So, a little lower volume on those drums would be prefered :). Nonetheless, the transition to the next part here is awesome! The 8-bit melody here is extremely well done and it really shows that you are a very musical person. Another varation thing that I really love at this part, is after playing 2 times in the original key, you move up 2 halfnotes and start playing the same thing in this new key. I love that kind of stuff, it really adds to the variety.
Overall this is probably one of my favourite tracks from you. The mix between NES and DnB is lovely. Like the reviewer below me said, this is a new genre of 8-bit :D!
Keep up the good work!
Thanks! I've always been a big fan of Drum N Bass and VGM.
My first tunes were VGM tunes, but I removed them cuz they weren't that good.
Thanks, I got inspired by GBC music, then added some of my own sounds (Vibraphone etc.)
My idea was actually to move from 8Bit (Chiptune) into more bits and more.
Ah, well, I'll add a buildup some time, but I can't edit this song anymore, because it was featured in the top 30 and has 3000+ listens. :S
Haha! That part, oh yeah it was inspired by 90s dance music (That piano), Like your flying really high, then fall back on the ground and fight your Earthnemesis.
Oh thanks! :) I got the idea for the IDM break fro Iridium's "Clean versus Dirty".
Then I composed my own little break.
Oh that! Nah that's just a little synth, not meant as a bass :p
Thank you again! :D Yeah, Typical Chiptune ARPS :P It's not that hard to compose actually, just compose an arp and then move it to other notes etc.
Haha! Thanks man! I love it when people enjoy my songs ;)
First of all I've gotta say this is a really, really good song totally deserving it's place among the top 5 weekly!
Like someone pointed out earlier, the mellow intro you created is indeed very soothing and the main synth you're is really schmexy. I also really enjoy the way you used 32nd notes in a similiar, quite glitchy way to how that trance guru Envy does it. It gives a really nice feel to the whole song. Maybe I'm just enjoying it because I really like glitchy stuff... who knows xD
When the intro is over and the song finally kicks in, it was sadly like an anti-climax in my honest opinon. I'm not saying that it's bad or anything, I think it does sound really good, but I was so expecting something else. So there I was, waiting all the time for this climax to finally hit. The song ended and I sat there, feeling somewhat empty and in some way disappointed. The abrupt ending almost feels like the song is not finished... like there's supposed to be a new part coming that we may never hear :(. I hope you see what I mean.
Also there's another thing I'd like to point out. The breakdown you made at 01:32 is indeed very nice. I feel like it's very anticipated, not too forced. Personally I would've liked to see a change of style after the breakdown, but that's just a matter of taste! Also it might just be the fact that my ears are stupid, but I feel like the cello/violin-synth you added is like 1/4th of a note off-scale. This is especially clear on the long note that plays at 1:50. But then again, maybe it's just me so don't take this part of the review too harsh xD
Even though the song feels like it never reaches the mountain top, so to say, I still think it's a totally relaxing and chilling tune you've got going here. Gotta admit I'm not too much of a trance maniac, but this track is indeed really good.
holy shit, this is a great review thank you for your time, effort, and opinion... and this song is far from perfect, it was a just for fun song... nothing to serious... but i really enjoyed making it
