Frequently Asked Questions







M.M. Wiki

  • Q: How long have you been animating?
  • A: I've been animating since I was eight years old with Windows Movie Maker. I stumbled onto flash about 2 years ago, so that's about how long i've done this.
  • Q: What inspired the name "Shrinkz"?
  • A: My height. When I created my account on Newgrounds back in 2005, I was pretty short.
  • Q: Why are your animations always delayed?
  • A: As most people don't know, I have a life, and like to tend to it just as often as I do my animations. That, and i'm a really big procrastinator.
  • Q: Why is Madness the only thing you animate?
  • A: Madness was the real reson I began animating with Flash, and was what I started with, so i'm a lot more acustomed to the style. Don't worry, other series and styles are being brainstormed and tested every day.
  • Q: I've looked in your screenshots of projects, and noticed that it's not Flash. What's up?
  • A: I actually used to use Sothink SWF Quicker for animating. It's a dirty habit of mine that I'm currently in the process of working my way out of. Madness Mini 6 and Madness: Pie 3 will be animated in Flash, so this problem has been solved.
  • Q: I looked and saw you had a sponsor? How did you get a sponsor, and how can I get one? 
  • A: This is by far the most frequently asked question. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to answer it, other then I was in the right place at the right time. Work hard, practice up, and if you're good enough, something may pop up, but again, sponsorship cases like mine are few and far between. If you're working on a game, Hallpass and Armorgames are always looking for new developers.
  • Q: Can I help you with XXX animation?
  • A: I've become a stickler to the fact that all of my animations are solely animated by me. However, every so often, I need help with music, special effects, etc. If you think I need any help, send some stuff you've made over to me, and if you're good enough and I have an opening, sure.
  •  Q: When is XXX animation going to be released?
  • A: I have absolutely no idea. As was seen with Madness Mini 5, I am horrible at determining release dates, and don't want to make a promise I don't intend to keep. I'll give some fair warning when the animation's close to completion.
  • Q: Do you have a general timeframe for XXX animation's completion?
  • A: No. 
  •  Q: Can I see a screenshot of XXX animation?
  • A: No. 
  • Q: I'm making XXX collab. Want to be involved in it?
  • A: I am usually only involved in collabs for special situations, and am usually busy enough with my solo projects to throw my two cents into the pot. If you've got a good group of animators involved in it, let me know, and I may be able to contribute. 
  • Q: What's the best way to get in contact with you?
  • A: My email or MSN address. Although I use AIM every so often, I wouldn't reccomend it if you need anything right when you need it. If you wish to use one of the instant message choices, don't hesitate to message me thinking i'll message you first, because i won't. I'm not good at starting conversations.
