"The Fingertips Project" is a massive collaboration done by various members of the animutation discussion list, set to the song Fingertips by They Might Be Giants. 13 artists come togethor with different styles, some relying on classic animutation cliches such as Colin Mochrie, some using original characters and animation, and some being just plain bizzare, but in the end producing a unique work of entertainment.

The full list of artists is as follows:
Toxic the Machine AKA Bob Barker, Andrew Kepple, Neil Cicierega, Random Ferret,Un-J, Eric Fleck, ChainsawJugg1er, Nathew, Mudi, Glutnix, Bill Volk, Bort and Keith Stack.

It's true that others have tried making a video for Fingertips before, and in no way did we attempt to steal any ideas from them. But also, very few have ever done the full track in its entirety. It's not the most breathtaking work that you'll find on here. You can click on the top 50 for that. But it's interesting.



Rated 4 / 5 stars


This has to be the most random thing I have ever seen. First, the song: It was so off the wall that I thought you guys just sloshed some things together and made something out of it. But that's the real song? Crazy. And I noticed all the different styles of animation, or animutation, (what is the meaning of that anyway?)

Anyways, good job on a crazy cartoon.

This is one of the greatest flash videos I've ever seen. Fingertips is the first TMBG song I ever heard and it made them my favorite band. The high volume of in-jokes and other such things only enhanced the experience, and the use of 'randomimutation' was quite intuitive.

I didn't think it was possible, but alas, a Matrix Has You-esqe Animutation! With TMBG lyrics at that! It's hilarious, the songs go great with the movie (obviously), you guys made fun of each other in the movies, and the "something different every time" thing is awesome. The only thing I'm a little disappointed at is that TmsT didn't use his trademark St3r3-o-vision, but I'd still give it an infinity/5 anyday.

The Strangest and Greatest Animutation Thus Far

I particularly like scene 19, a tribute to (Wendy's) Dave Thomas and Wessly Willis.

Rock over London! Rock over Chicago!

It'll do.

Some of the segments were pretty funny, but it's too bad that several of them were so lazy and unoriginal. Still, a good effort.
