Author's comments and explanations:
Emulator: Snes9X 1.43 (not WIP)

No warps or passwords. No programming errors abused. No deaths. No hits. 100% kills were aimed for in sections of levels where I thought it would be entertaining, otherwise no.

Description: My main goal in all my movies is entertainment, bottom line. The goal was to make SMW be as entertaining to watch as I possibly could. It is NOT a speed run, then again it's not unnecessarily slow either. I move through the level as fast as I can, while making the movie as entertaining as I can. I understand this is not the kind of movie you guys usually do, but I thought I would throw it out there and see what people thought. It IS my very first movie. I tried to make it very sleek and professional, but again very pleasant to watch. I will never take any hits in any of my movies, I absolutely hate that in a speed run, even if it saves time.

Making of the movie: The final run actually went quite smoothly. The re-record count is a bit deceiving as I completely started over Many times, redoing levels that I felt I could have done more with. I hope that people will like the result. I feel there is a lot of potential in "style" movies that has yet to be tapped. I hope more people will start making them as I feel that they are the most entertaining to watch. Since you guys only take .smv files I had to start from the beginning, and do the best I could with the levels I was given. The movie goes through 2-1 which I feel is the most enjoyable to watch of the movie.

I suppose the best way to shortly describe this is a pseudo-speed run made to be as smooth and entertaining as I possibly could. Speed is very entertaining, but I don't think it should go at the expense of entertainment itself.
