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.


great job, friend-o

Thank you friend!

The freaking colossus with Ego's hair hahaha.

That was some funny stuff man, and I don't think you give yourself enough credit. Personally, I always get excited when I see a new animation of yours on the front page. You do some great work, man.

I'm gonna knock you half a star only because of that intro. Not because it was too long winded or whatever, just because it was a little misleading. It made me expect a longer flash (which would have been sweet because your animations are great) and though it was longer than your previous ones, it was still a pretty short-average length.

Still a great flash. Keep up the good work man.

TerminalMontage responds:

Hah fair enough! Yeah I tried to replicate the real SotC intro, that was pretty long and I still shortened it a whole lot. I'll probably be sticking to the short and sweet animations for a while, while I learn the tricks of the trade and improve, one day I'll start making some decently lengthed animations!

Thank you!

Great flash! Absolutly astounishing. Can i just ask what song is playing during the talk with the god. Can't get it out of y head... GREAT WORK!

TerminalMontage responds:

All the songs are from SotC, the first song when he (I, me) enters the chamber is "Prologue to the ancient land" and when the god is talking it's "prohibited art."


at the end i'm just speechless and i laughed.
this flash deserve effectively a 5/5, cause its funny cause its true!
