5: Sherbalex: Who can forget Jeremey? HIs animation is so smooth, original and full of style that it's inspiring to watch everytime. Not to mention his fitting songs and sence of humor that so greatly saturate his movies. Fun dude to chat too.
4: Krinkels: Matt is great when it comes to just kickass movies. Movies that are violent and funny, and animated well. His (main, let's not forget Breadman) series, Madness, has improved much over time and still manages to keep thousands of fans interested and coming back for more. Not to mention, when he teamed up with Max A. and created Madness Interactive (which I had the pleasure of Modding), his fans screamed cries of happiness (is that an oxymoron?). Great guy, too.
3: Gel: He's original, humorous, and straightfoward. Not to mention, he has a great (fake) wife! When colaborating with Dustball (another great, but not for movies/animation) you can expect to see magic made. Don't forget about him! (Gel - ;) )
2: Dan Paladin (Synj): So you're not Jesus? Synj is a kind, nice, hilarous little jolly jogger who's unaturally short. With Glasses. What's not to like? Haha, just loving with you. His great fbf movies are a feast for the eyes, with special effects galore. Not to mention he's managed to make two (yes, two.) entries this year while completing a console game! The dynamic duo Dan/Tom have always worked well together to bring us great games such as the AHP, AH, Cantankourus TANK (w/ a little help from Gel.) and others (?). Not to mention he manages to run a forum with 600 members and flaming 14 year old punks. :P I applaud you, Synjy.
1: Adam Phillips: A veteran animator (10 years and counting) who still continues to amaze me and MANY others with his great, great, great, GREAT animations and invisioned Actionscripting ideas (along with Sham). He's prouduced and great series that's going places (Adam - ;) Hah). Adam dominates the Portal, and with another movie in the works, he shall continue. Godspeed. I had the pleasure of moderating his forum before I resigned, and that filled me with respect for Adam.
