I'm taking a risk with such a strong title on this one, so please don't make up your mind about it until you've watched it through!

I hope you guys enjoy it. I have many more fans who are bronies on DA than on my other channels, so hopefully I'm not not grilling you guys too hard :P

I'm submitting to DA the same way I did with my Pregnetheus cartoon, which is a Youtube embed inside a Flash file. It's just the simplest way to do it I think. I could submit to the film section, but I feel like my work fits better under the Flash category. Submitting my work this way has the added bonus of contributing to my youtube view count as well.

-----------------------------Spoiler Warningó---------------

I always find it funny when people on the internet get so angry over things like Bronies, Hipsters, Nickleback etc, so I guess I just wanted to make a cartoon over how strange it is. I didn't want it to be too preachy and sappy, but then I didn't want it to be too aggressive either. I think I've got a good balance, though hopefully I don't just end up pissing everyone off instead: P

---------------------------------------------

This one took quite a bit longer than my Pregnetheus cartoon. The 'rough' style actually took more work than my typical cleaner style oddly enough. I was initially thinking of doing something more in the style of Dark Knight Rises, but just decided to do my own style anyway. I'm happy with how it turned out, though I'm eager to get back to something tidier and simpler.

We hit a creative roadblock in the last few days of production. We couldn't come up with any music to fit the first half. In the end I came across some Star Wars music (the Emperors Theme) and thought "screw it, lets just parody that". So that's how we ended up with a Batman/ My Little Pony / Star Wars crossover parody thing....

Hania worked her butt off on the score for this one. She did about 5 different versions of the first half, which was my fault. I was like "Needs more DUNDUNDUNDUN dun DUHHHH" and then "Can we pull back the "DunDunDun dunnn?" and then "......Maybe we should get rid of the DunDunDunDun...."

Jazza did a fantastic job as usual as Batman. It was my first time working with Josh Tomar (as the voice of the Brony), and he completely nailed it from the get go, I can't wait to work with him again. Special thanks to Sam Green for some useful feedback!

The bulk of production was done in Flash, for character animation. I used a lot of Photoshop for the BG art, and composited in After Effects to add some glows and filters just to soften the look a little.

I've got a couple more ideas for some parody stuff, but we're going to throw in some original stuff soon too just to even it out a bit more.
