The humans are dead. +

I was in doubt if I should upload this one since it is an extended version, but then I remembered a lot of people wanted it in the reviews, and I realized this have twice more animation the last one have, so it's basically the same amount of work, and I really want to show it to the world, I think it's fair.

Initially I wanted to animate over the longer version of the song but I could only find the shorter one, after uploading it people pointed out that the name of the song is "robots" and not "the humans are dead", so I was able to find the long version.

Then I pondered if I should make the extended version, I'm not really a fan of extending things, seems like laziness and all, but at that time I watched the Flight of The Conchords TV show and got a lot more into their work so it made me want to go ahead and extend the animation over the longer song. In the end it took more time than the first one.

That said, Flight of The Conchords is great, BUY THEIR STUFF, they had a TV show and it was amazing just like their songs.

Anyway, I made music videos for practice, I have a lot of scripts to animate that I haven't touched because I'm a terrible animator, so I wanted to do some things without too much commitment first, I think I achieved my goal with these music videos, I'm ready to do my completely original animations, and you can expect a lot of them pretty soon.

If you don't like it, that's fine, but please leave CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.
I hope you enjoy.

Thank you.


I very like the concept and the style!

Bonne musique et bon travail!

Steinberg responds:

hmmm, I guess you're right!

Great Job- Couple of comments,
First, i really noticed alot of the animation style transitions. some parts were clearly from the old video (understandable) but some parts (like the factory) look like they could have used more of a detailed pick to them, like some of the later scenes that looked GLORIOUS.

Second, dont stop what your doing! Great job, and the song is fantastac anyway so you had alot of elbow room to work with. i REALLY liked the little "human in a robot suit" adition, it added to the comedic feel. Keep it up!

Steinberg responds:

Thanks! Actually the newer parts look worse than the older parts, the factory is a newer part, heh, I guess I was just lazier this time around, oh well =\

I like the extended version, but it does in fact look and sound exactly like an extended version and that isn't good. The old video had a more concise, better flow. The two original robots were also quite charismatic in their own way and the scenes just don't progress as naturally as in the original one, so this work feels less polished and complete, all considered.

Steinberg responds:

Yeah I couldn't have enough ideas to fit it all perfectly, the ones I had were too damn difficult and beyond my skills so I had to drop them, so it feels like dragging at some points.
Thank you for your review.
