Spoony Experiment Intro

Share Collapse

Author Comments

By popular demand, here is the new animated intro for Noah Antwiler's gaming and movie riffing site, the Spoony Experiment! (www.spoonyexperiment.com - link also in video) I'd always been a fan and when I heard him lament on his lack of an animated intro in one of his commentaries, I jumped at the chance. He gave me the music, and I spent three months (on and off) animating the rest.

The piece stands alright on it's own, though it is of course filled with references (which I listed in the menu), and I hope you guys get a laugh out of it. Even though it's just an intro, constructive criticism on animation etc, is always welcome.

About the Spoony Experiment: The Spoony Experiment is a collection of reviews, rants, and riffs by Noah Antwiler on every manner of obscure movie and game you never wanted to hear of, with a few notable exceptions. The most notorious of these is a 10 part playthrough of Final Fantasy VIII, which ripped the story and gameplay to shreds, and sparked controversy beyond belief. He's been making his way through a follow up review on Final Fantasy X, and just recently used this intro in his riff on a series of hilariously bad Wendy's training videos. Gamers and anyone enjoying a good rant is encouraged to check it out. The Spoony Experiment! Because bad games and movies deserve to be hurt back!

I just saw your intro in Spoony's latest video. Congrats!

I'am a big fan of Spoony my self :)

The animation was NICE and i hope Spoony will see this :)


I didn't know Spoony was so violent. Sure, he said that he wants to stab an ice pick in Tidus's throat, but this intro would rather fit the Angry Video Game Nerd or Angry Joe. Just way too much punching, in my opinion.

Altogether, you did put effort into this, but it's simply too messy and sometimes it's really hard to see who is fighting who. Oh look, a reference to Spoony's opinion about The Expendables! No seriously, I didn't notice most of your chosen references in the video because it was too fast.

The problem is that you tried to squeaze too many references into a song that is barely over 1 minute long. Of course it's easier said than done, but you should really rework this and focus on limiting the amount of references for the sake of presenting them with a little more detail, so that not only the hardcore fans can notice them. As a suggestion, use references that are fairly well known. *cough* Spoony dressing as Squall *cough*

At any rate, I'm looking forward to the next version...if you ever create one.

Don't worry too much about the graphical presentation. It's not bad.
Besides, you'll get better at drawing over time.

Spoony rocks, and so do you!

I've been a fan of his for years, and by far this is the best intro made by either himself or a fan.

I tip my hat to you, good sir!
