"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.

Dammit! But hey, way to go!

I'm kind of sad that I found this, actually. See, just this very night I thought that I would make a flash containing the last bunch of songs on TMBG's Apollo 18. It's a good CD, but I guess you beat me to it...

Anyway, this was really funny, really good.

Dreams do come true!

I saw this a while ago and thought, "Nah, I won't watch it". Then I was talking to my neighbor about my favorite band, They Might Be Giants, when they said they have the Apollo 18 CD, where I saw all of the fingertips songs and thought, "Is this a dream?". So when I got home, I went back to the page, and the music said, "They Might Be Giants" and I watched it and saw two familiar animation technique/styles and thought, "three great things in one?", and I went to artists, and saw "Andrew Kepple" and "Neil Cicierega". So, "All my 5 R belong to this!". Interactivity is buttons!
