Stickfighting

Hey! Remember those fighting stickmen videos and flash animations by Zhu Zhq that did the rounds a couple of years ago? They in turn spawned Animator vs Animation by Alan Becker. That’s back – and I’m blown away by how far it’s come. Here’s Animator vs. Animation IV, which brings the eternal conflict to a head.

“The struggle between a stick figure and its creator, a computer animator. In this fourth installment, the animator is finally shown in real life interacting with his computer monitor. The stick figure, resisting his tormentor, attacks his social life by hacking his Facebook account, traveling onto his iPhone via USB cord, and drawing animations of his own to dismantle the animation interface.”

Man, that’s cool.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • There was a really cool Max Payne one quite a few years ago with that let the bodies hit the floor song, that was the first one i saw of these stickman videos

    I dig the work that Alan Becker does, and this just takes it that little further.

    Crazy skills, and WAY too much extra time on his hands for an animator 😛
