Ladies and Mentlegen.

I hope you liked, or at the very least somewhat enjoyed this messed up project.

Hey if I made you at least chuckle once, I have achieved my goal.

Yes I had hard drive problems, and while it's all good now, the SFM project file I was initially working on got damaged in a weird way.

For instance, whilst using the graph editor, I would get inverted curves. Think of C's instead of regular n's

I thought about not submitting anything at all, but then I would have felt empty.

Believe it or not I did put quite a lot of hard work. (preparation for the uncorrupted project) but it got very tiring to try and animate models that would just:

-Not let me animate them
-Graph editor with inverted curves
-work and regular cameras flipping upside down randomly
-rigging became a nightmare
-and many more...

I did the best I could with what I had.

Starting over would have just taken tooooooo long.

Anyway, if you actually stopped to read all this you're an awesome person. Thanks for your understanding.

TL;DR :
Sorry if you didn't like it, but I'll be glad if you did. I had PC problems, files and models got messed up. Life, Lemons, Lemonade... etc.

I will be making waaaaaay more videos now, even with other game characters and not exclusive to valve assets. My computer is fixed and even upgraded now, so no more screw-ups.
The easiest way to watch the future vids is if you subscribe, but if you don't want to...well I hope you run into my vids later.

Peace

Holy Flippidy crap. That was certainly unexpected, and strange, surreal in it's own way.. I would have perferred an acutal bar scene, but the david lynch mindfuck was interesting, could have been exucuted better, but.. was alright.. Infact I'd recomend you going into more of an Eraserhead direction. Good luck!

TBH, it feels more like a GMod film than an SFM film, even though it's made in SFM.

I praise you for your effort, but there are better videos in the Saxxys this round.

Better luck next time, eh?

I can feel your frustration, but to put this up against others, this just isn't up to snuff. You do make attempts at syncing things with the audio, but the pacing is incredibly off and there's really barely a joke, or much in the way of action. I'm sorry that you weren't able to make it work this year, but hopefully next one you'll get a contender.
