Hey there everyone, DeepRising here with the Weekly News Letter and Weekly Topic competition. Don't forget next week's topic theme and the subsequent Upcoming Topics. There's also information about loads of new Halloween stuff including a free theme. Check it all out at the end of the News letter, after the Topic.
And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "The Perfect Heist". Well done to everybody who entered.
Our first selection this week, by Mario209, features Peter Parker, in a perfect heist, at a Pizza shop! The cartoon style mix of drawing and photos for the character's heads, works brilliantly! We loved the use of movie audio for the dialogue too.
This next, beautifully animated selection, by Jzork, is inspired by the movie 'Despicable Me'. In it the self proclaimed, greatest evil villain in the world, proposes a heist, using a shrink ray. With his 'Gorls' to help him, will he succeed?
In this hilarious Flipnote, by Kêithkash★, an attempted bank heist falls flat on it's face, when the desperate criminal is informed, that he has no funds in any of his accounts.
The cinematography and action, are choreographed perfectly, in this thrilling Jewel heist Flipnote, by -Phantom-. The sneaking around, and darting the guard, had us on the edge of our seats, but alas, the Jewel itself, is a fake! :O
In this tongue-in-cheek, action packed entry, by ThisAusB23, the genius cat-burglar uses water bombs, party spray and an apple, to steal an enormous diamond. The dialogue performance is totally brilliant, and the music was just the perfect choice. That's mission accomplished!
It's that spooky time of year again! Halloween has come around again, and you'll be pleased to hear that this week's topic is indeed Halloween.
Halloween, also known as All Hallows' Eve, is a celebration of all things supernatural, monstrous and scary!
