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.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


It LOOKED cool, but I dont really get what the big deal is. I guess if its supposed to be illustrating the deus ex machina theme I dont really see insect man banging a dead girl in a coffin with boobs on the coffin doesnt seem to fit the theme, nor did alot of it, at least the way I saw it.....

I've been on newgrounds for awile now though this by far is the most artistic work I have seen. It beats the likes of Salid Fingers in it's outlook on the macabre(i apologize if it's misspelled). Your talent is very ovious.

That was an awesome flash. You should make more like that, because it was much different than the normal pig crap that gets submitted to this site way too often. Keep up the good work.

It reminded me of this short film called "Head Cleaner". That was submitted to the resfest film festival some time ago. Maybe you should check it out.

Thanks. I'll check that out.
