Leprakawn posted a link in the HTMLCenter forums to a neat little Flash animation. The title of the Flash animation is “Animator vs. Animation”. It’s a cool animation postulating what it would be like if a character in a Flash animation were to come to life and start attacking the mouse pointer.
The creator also made a sequel called “Animator vs. Animation II”. This one is a bit more abstract and a lot more fun. In this animation, the character escapes the Flash window and fun ensues throughout the user’s desktop.
An animator faces his own animation in deadly combat. The battlefield? The Flash interface itself.
A stick figure is created by an animator with the intent to torture. The stick figure drawn by the animator will be using everything he can find – the brush tool, the eraser tool – to get back at his tormentor. It’s resourcefulness versus power. Who will win? You can find out yourself.
The animator, looking for a challenge, decides to make the stick figure harder to beat. Little does he know exactly how much power he is giving to the little guy. Long live The Chosen One!
This took me five months.
