Animation is great for so many reasons...whether you're looking to reconnect with your past, to express an opinion, dream, or thought, or to just make people laugh :)

Long-Lost Update, Summer Plans

Posted by Bigfoot3290 - May 3rd, 2010


It's about time; almost one year since I've posted anything. Newgrounds, I have missed you.

What's New?:College. I have been focusing chiefly on my schoolwork for the first time in a long time. I managed a 4.0 during the fall semester and I'm looking to go back-to-back for the spring. In short, SUNY New Paltz has been an enlightening experience. I feel as if all of the unnecessary anger and frustration from high school has evaporated. Now, I am looking forward to my Junior year while thinking about my future and graduate school in law, education, or business. There were so many uncertainties only two years ago. It is amazing to see progression so swift and decisive.

How about them Flashes?: Flashing has been admittedly far back in the recesses of my mind. But, when summer starts, I plan on putting out at least one movie ... hopefully more. The movie will probably be a good ol' fashioned Mario sprite flick, but there's also Funky Turtles, a project which I haven't completely abandoned (check out my last post for more info). As I've said before, I miss the days of Super Mario Land. 2006 was my breakthrough year, and the rush I got from the loving reviews and praise will always be a fond memory. Sometimes, people find it difficult to understand how a person can be so attached to flashes. They claim that flashes (and the awards, etc.) are "virtual." It's all about the passion that goes into the flash - the late nights, the cups of coffee, spawning the ideas during school. It takes dedication to produce and complete an animation, and a whole lot of character to subject one's work to the opinions of others. With this in mind, I am very excited to work on a project or two over the summer. It's gonna be like a swim in the ocean.

I hope everyone else is doing well!

Best,
Jeremy

you should try other video games other than mario, like sonic or something....

well, i never really played much else besides mario ... it's like a home-base for me. i also work with mario because it's a passion :D!

funky turtles would be the drawn project to offset the spritiness.

It's good to hear from you again. Can't wait for your next project. Also, I wouldn't listen to the guy above me. :P

You rock Bigfoot!

I agree with FlashfireEX, you begun here with mario flashes so is best you stick with your popularity.

Hell yeah you're back! I was wondering bout dem Funky turtles. And to say something else, If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good luck in college btw!

GOOD TO HEAR ABOUT U AGAN JEREMY... I REALLY WANT TO SEE THE FUNKY TURTLES! :)

I knew you would post something after all this time. I just hope that I see some new flash from you.
