The Kung Pao Pigeon [Saxxy Awards 2013]

Did you like this video? (Category: Action, Short)

"It has occurred to me that this video shows up as 1:01 long. The moment you hit Play, however, the video is shown to be 1 minute long. I implore you, judges, to keep this into consideration, as I do not want to be disqualified for a technicality that is so very, very minor. It is exactly 1 minute long, the extra 1 second being there appears to be a glitch as evident when the video is actually in motion.


Dedicated to aRandumDude, who basically asked why I wasn't entering the Saxxy's a week before all the entries were due.


This would actually mark my 3rd use with SFM, and an ambitious one at that. The plan was literally to figure out what to do for the Saxxy's that wouldn't be a lazy video but be something a little different to stand out from the competition.

I hope I've delivered on that with our favourite little bird buddy from TF2 kicking some serious Spy ♥♥♥.

Absolutely hilarious! Love it! Archimedes is one bad bird! Really silly and fun. I like the music and the well timed sound effects. Awesome action sequence. The one thing that bothers me is the angle of the backstab. He seems to be flying in at a steeper angle yet stabs straight from behind. Not really important though. I love the simple yet effective expressions you use for Archimedes. You get his threatening glares and his “oh those silly humans” look. Really well done! Great comedy and short!
