"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.

I'm sorry about the purple cloudy forks. But you see the mayonaise was too flamable, and I had to put my tonsil in the nearby glove compartment. Luckily, the dog was able to ride his motorcycle, and I think that's what it was really all about.

That and eggplants.

I LOVE THIS! This is number 1 in my favorites. How did this not get an award? "Please pass the milk please" :)

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.

They can't make a sequal

Yeah, Lassesflash, they can't really make a sequal b/c those were a buch of songs by They Might Be Giants, and I don't believe they made anything like FingerTips again. So unless these artist get something new, there will be no similar sequal. New job on the movie collabators!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Obviously, you worked very hard on this

That was amazingly amazing! First I tought it was going to be a real big chaotic thingy, but it wasn't really that. Meh, Liked it a big funkaliscious lot. I'm a big fan of animutation and I think I saw them all (yes, I've got no life X-D), and I know when I see great stuff. I was a few little disappointed because of the lack of Mr.Pringles, scotsmen and chaotic music BUT it was still one of the best animutation movie ever, and it is possibly the biggest project ever. 5'd! I love you guys. k now stop reading lol.
