DEUS EX MACHINA is competing for the best animation short made for the internet at Ottawa International Animation Festival 2004. (

"In some ancient Greek drama, an apparently insoluble crisis was solved by the intervention of a god, often brought on stage by an elaborate piece of equipment. This "god from the machine" was literally a deus ex machina.
Few modern works feature deities suspended by wires from the ceiling, but the term deus ex machina is still used for cases where an author uses some improbable (and often clumsy) plot device to work his or her way out of a difficult situation. When the cavalry comes charging over the hill or when the impoverished hero is relieved by an unexpected inheritance, it's often called a deus ex machina."

From the Guide to Literary Terms by Jack Lynch.

Genious. Pure genious.

That was cool. Its a treat from the original blood shed seen with an awesome piece of work like yours. It may not be about the popular game, but is awesome none the less. I would LOVE to see more.

What the fuck are you smoking?!

That was awesome, you must be smoking/sniffing some freaky shit to come up with that.

Yes. A masterpiece. I bet 12 billion coffee shops (no NOT Starbucks) across the world are at this moment showing this flash in constant repitition.
It was amazing and beautifal.

FREELENS responds:

That's a nice thing to picture. Thanks.
