"After getting an infected foot I had a bit of free time. I had a plan to do this video since TF2 first came out but I wanted to wait for Source Filmmaker to go official. 130 hours in SFM and Hammer later, here it is. As my foot healed I was getting less and less time to work on it. So I got it to a point where i was happy and just shut it down. It has it's flaws but it was a case of release now or never.


The animation work i did is pretty bad, i'm still learning a lot of this.
Most of it is kinect mo cap of myself and Zach. I barely touched it afterwards for clean up, mostly only the head and hands.

FYI i'm not an animator by profession.

... Answer? Use a gun. And if that don't work? Use more gun. And if that still doesn't work? Use a nuke.
Best 4 min I've ever spent.
Awesome Doc.

Fine job James.
How the hell did you get that MoCap data in to the SFM ? Wow.

Great story idea, and a very decent execution. This should inspire plenty more folks.

I think this is greatest "feature-length of sorts" machinima here so far. Can't wait to see more of this quality in the future.

Easily the most funniest, most impressive and best made SFM video I've seen so far!
