Shadow of the Animators

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.


i like everthing, except the beggining, that was tooooooooo slow(i know, the shadow of the colossus game have a lot of this, but... is like take much time). After that, i love it all of the animation(and the voice of god), the menction of other animatiors like the "titans" of the internet. And no, you need to be more hilarious to talk to egoraptor mortal!!! :D

Hey thanks!

I just watched a lot of animations by Egoraptor, Harry, HotDiggedyDemon and already spent many years drawing (comics) in Flash, so I thought I'd start animating :D

You have no idea how epic it is to have suggested making a shadow of the colossus animation and actually have it listened to. I love you... forever. It was awesome and i hope to all the various gods that you make it to that highest reaches of the Great Animation Colossus. Subscribed, favorited, whatever. Loved it

Haha <3 thanks man!

I hope that you do join the elite, the highest echelon of animating masters.
The seemingly insurmountable level...

TerminalMontage responds:

Thank you c:

Good luck Mortal, We'll be watching you. Its great to see someone/something new on the front page with fresh promise. I love our 'animating elite' as much as any NGer of course though. Your flash offers a very valid perspective on the nature of animators and their reputations around here. Well done, refreshing to see, and I expect more great things from you in the future. Keep on making those queer little cartoons :)
