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 didn't mind the slow intro and the long conversation with that god. I thought it was really interesting and the animation was incredible! Also loved the ending xD

Hah thanks :D

That was awesome and very well done. I've really enjoyed what you've done so far, and this one is no different. Clean and smooth, good acting on your part, and great use of the reference to Shadow of the Colossus.

Kind of funny how you brought up the "they all seem to know eachother" bit. It's good to know I'm not the only one that ever thought of that. Hope you get up there with them. (Which honestly I thought you were there already...)

Hah, I liked how you made the god guy talk like a complete douche. More refreshing than "The answer lies within the blade!"
