Capture The Flag Canceled

Bad news, fan (s),

I know nobody reads this page anymore, but for any user out there lost on this site and somehow stumbling upon my humble little page: I've decided to suspend production on the CTF reboot. The project has become a ravening dog, eating up all my time and shitting all over the house. The truth is I don't find it very rewarding now. The truth is I'm not a very talented animator either. Writing has always been my focus, and there are several screenplay projects I know I must devote my efforts toward. CTF just wasn't flexing the right creative muscles for me.

One day, I intend to make Capture The Flag into the first 45-minute HBO-type drama with cartoon characters. It's my dream to make a 2-Dimensional show with 3-dimensional characters. Thanks for the support these past years. It's amazing to see some of you out there still wondering what happens to Evan Kingsley five years later. I don't know how this will affect my Newgrounds career which has been in a coma for a few years now. It's possible I will never make another flash. If that's the case, I want to say thank you to Tom Fulp and this site for giving me my start. I cannot emphasize how much I cherish the memories of making flashes in my teens and how much the experience has shaped me.

Merci.

- Andre Szydlowski

Hey fan (s?),

I know I haven't updated in a bit. There's a new episode of Capture The Flag coming up after about a three-year hiatus. Should be out in a few weeks. For now, check out this still!

Check out a new (un-detailed) image of Evan 2.0! Capture The Flag is coming back and it's got a new paint job. Farewell gritty lines-- goodbye obsessive sketching! I'm really looking forward to resuscitating this baby. Stay tuned in the comings months for Capture The Flag: EP IV!

Hey fan (s?),

Just checking in to let you know I'm still alive. I've been so excited lately to get this old flash series started again. I'm watching some old NG cartoons and I'm getting goose pimples (GOOSE pimples!). I'm aiming for a release two months from now. I've been pretty busy with my part-time job, my feature film script, and other responsibilities but CTF4 is on track, though slightly sluggish in its production time. In the meantime, here's a sneak behind-the-scenes screenshot of The Manor barebones. Painting and shading to follow.

These last couple of years have been a trying time for me creatively. Progress always feels elusive-- even when I'm staring at page 74 of a script that didn't have a page one less than two months ago. I spent the last year and a half pouring myself into a short film that I think is pretty damn funny, but no festival took it. I don't feel sorry for myself, only frustrated. But I remain optimistic and these setbacks have humbled me and tempered my expectations. I don't suspect CTF4 will do very well when it's released. It's only going to be a few minutes after all. A re-introduction of things to come. But I plow through because I like it, and I love having a finished movie. I'm about to begin a work session right now. I got a pile of dishes sitting behind me in my cramped 1 1/2 but animating comes first.

The dishes can wait



None if you guys remember me, but I'm going to make a movie again. "Well this is joyous news!" I already hear you crying. Hopefully CTF4 will be out by the end of the summer and Capture The Flag will be brought back to life after a long hiatus :).

Gonna give my old flash series some much needed CPR.



This took a hell of a long time to make. A huge strain on my wallet and sanity -- but I am pleased to finally be able to show it. Please let me know what you guys think!


Check out the trailer for my new short film!!

Hey Newgrounds, it's been a while. I'm gonna catch up with my flash animating real soon but I've been busy with my latest live-action short. Tell me what you think!


Hey

See you soon.


Check out my new Short Film!

2010-07-26 03:18:30 by Aeonstars

Hey Newgrounds, while you wait for the next installment of Capture The Flag (sometime this decade), I present to you my newest short film: Canterbury Black! It took several months of headaches, nosebleeds, and erratic fits of crying to produce these 15 minutes. I think you guys will take to it considering it's meant to be an homage to comic books and film noir.

I'd love to hear some Newgrounds feedback so please let me know what you guys think! Even better, tell me if any of you have any theories as to what the hell is going on. While the movie may be confusing, this is deliberate and every scene and line is meant to communicate something hidden. The film functions as a puzzle that needs cracking. Can you solve it?

I give you Amy in a nightie!

...

Does this mean CTF4 deals with clandestine underground preteen sex circles? If you said probably not, you're probably right. And someone point me in the direction of these "sex circles".

I'll be uploading images regularly. Who cares about secrecy. CTF3 has had 5000 views since June last year.
