DISCLAIMER: At one point in this short I make a little joke about Machinima, I want to make it clear that, I have no problems with Machinima, I'm a Machinima director. I'm not the greatest animator in the world, but my opinion of SOME of the other Machinima animators is quite low, in fact because of how bad their animations are it INSPIRED me to animate, because if they can do it, anyone can.

Anyway, this is just a little animation about me making more animations. So every cartoon I make is essentially part of a series about me becoming a better animator, and potentially befriending other great animators! This was also a little tribute to every animator mentioned in the video, cause you know, I'm "fighting the best to become the best" sort of deal.

And the song at the end is "The Sunlit Earth," from Shadow of the Colossus.

EDIT: Sometimes when the video loads it might zoom in, just right click and "show all." I have no idea why it's doing this now.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I liked it. I thought the parody didn't feel forced, it worked somehow.

About us all being close friends, I honestly don't know about that. I only talk to Max and even that is once in a while, but I may be a bit of a loner. About Machinima, besides them being sort of shady I've never really had a problem with em.

In any case, good job with the animation, it was interesting to watch.

Thank you sir!

Hah yeah I figured that not everyone was in some sort of, round circle or mini internet illuminati, but I imagined you guys all in that same league, you're awesome :] And Machinima is cool, I never had a problem with them either, I tried to just poke at the other animators not just Machinima, cause I'm part of Machinima, I'll be putting my next animation on their so they know I don't hate them. They did add some sound effects to my Monster Hunter video without telling me.. But nothing that made it horrible..

Thanks again :]

That was awesome and very well done. I've really enjoyed what you've done so far, and this one is no different. Clean and smooth, good acting on your part, and great use of the reference to Shadow of the Colossus.

Kind of funny how you brought up the "they all seem to know eachother" bit. It's good to know I'm not the only one that ever thought of that. Hope you get up there with them. (Which honestly I thought you were there already...)

Great voice acting, very clear to hear.

Animation was smooth and instantly recognisable as your style. Plot was pretty funny and it moved at a nice pace.

The only problem is I didn't my picture on the wall of greats. Perhaps it's because I didn't get round to sending you that nude of me you asked for for reference. My bad.
