Animation vs. Animator (Saxxy 2014 - Winner of Best Overall)


I am completely stunned but I won the Best Overall category. There are several others who I personally think deserved this a lot more than I did. (Ex. The Jewel Escapade, Rivalry Rush, etc, go watch them.) Nevertheless, I would like to thank everyone who supported this video and helped me reach the finalists, and thanks for all the compliments!

After countless of hours have been poured into this project, it's finally completed. It is, by far, the longest and most time consuming animation project I've done so far, and is sort of a sequel to a video I made earlier: "The Power of the console" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMixDjDTRNY. It's what I based this video on, where I explored the idea of having a direct relationship between the animator and the animation, and breaking the boundaries between them. You asked for a series, but I made this instead. I hope this turned out entertaining and gave you a good laugh.
