Thanks eveyone and Tom Fulp for adding my little movie to the stick collection! I'm very greatful.

EDIT2: Thank you all for you support and reviews I never expected to get weekly 1st!
Also please note that I am aware of the changing eye colors and also that draynor manor is a place in runescape. There are like over a hundred comments telling me that lmao :P

EDIT: Wow thanks for the front page! I am totally blown away by your responses and am very thankfull of all the constructive feedback. Ill make sure I read evey comment so please dont neglect to ask me anything or post suggestions :D

Thanks to Tom Fulp for letting me upload this giant file :D
Based of the critically acclaimed video game series, "Thief: Rent's Due" follows the story of Garrett, the worlds greatest thief, as he collects some much needed rent money.

There is a high quality (25mb) and low quality (15mb) version of this on

Sorry about the giant filesize. If its too much to download head over to stickpage from the link above and watch it at 15mb, there is no stereo sound with that version though.

All music used in this animation can be downloaded here:

Very nicely done!

Flash was great, but I had some minor grievances with it. Primarily the lack of easing made the animation look stiff or robotic at times. Also things like the green pupil switching sides at times (though that's just nit-picking :P)

I hope to see more Flash from you. Your cinematic presentation means your ready to move past sticks. As much as I love them, what's the point of using stick figures if you're just going to tween anyway? Keep up the great work!

this was great man, great sound, animation, especially cinematography, BUT, i think this should all be an indicator to you that it's time to move on from sticks :)

i got that advice years ago and didnt like hearing it. still, i'm glad i heeded it, youve got a lot of potential here, sticks are holding you back :)

great work!

Totally Awesome!

As a HUGE fan of the Thief series (remember buying the first one when it came out) I really enjoyed this flash. It definitely captures the style of the game. I hope people out there who haven't played them see this movie actually go and check the series out.

The only thing keeping me from giving you a 10 was, besides a couple of scenes with some lazy animation (particularly right after the blackjacking scene), I had hoped this movie was a little bit more to the style of the cutscenes from the games, which in my opinion were absolutely amazing.

Still, a great flash nonetheless. I'm glad to see Thief fans still exist.

Keep making more Thief movies!
