There Really Needs To Be A TF2 Movie…

…or so machinima of this calibre makes me think. Splendid, Looney Toonian stuff.


Thanks to Matt Slim (if that is indeed his real name) for the tip.

    Now that was awesome!

    I’ve never read Gogol, but maybe I should.

  5. Mogs says:

    That was it?! Meh!

    Less “We want to be employed as animators”
    More R Kelly (the only mildly funny bit)

    Funnily enough, I could tell it was French long before the word Fin came up, the styling and wackiness of it combined with the choice of music was a bit of a give-away.

    Some of the body crumpling/leg animations seemed slightly odd though, but its otherwise fairly enjoyable.

    Tis mucho hawesome.

    Horray for my fake name

  8. LukeE says:

    @Larington: I would imagine the “présente” right at the beginning gave it away ;)

  9. SpoonySeeker says:

    Is it really machinima if it’s done in 3dsmax?

  10. A-Scale says:

    Hilarious! Creative and stupendous!

    I would love to see a 20 min short for TF2, but I think a full movie would overstay its welcome.

  12. Dan Forever says:

    Absolutely fabulous

  13. faelnor says:

    pas drôle :|

  14. Monkfish says:

    Ahh, TF2 machinima – love it.

    I still think my favourite TF2 machinima so far is Temp Fortress 2.

  15. suchchoices says:

    temp fortress 2 was hilarious, cheers monkfish.

  16. matte_k says:

    Great stuff, still fond of Ignis Solus though. Also, Pulp Fortress 2 for the lip-synch, and the Team Roomba stuff still cracks me up-the scout’s pop quiz is particularly amusing…

  17. Lunaran says:

    I was ready to put money on there being a Dr. Strangelove shot. Shows what I know.

  18. Ozzie says:

    Some animations were a bit abrupt and awkward and the comedic timing wasn’t too great, but good nonetheless.

  19. RichPowers says:

    hahaha Temp Fortress is fantastic! The Solly part is my favorite.

  20. Alex says:

    For those who don’t know, ‘Gogol’ is french slang for ‘Retard’

  21. Alex Grose says:

    Lunaran: All was done by exporting the models into 3DS Max and then put against GMod backgrounds. The final nuke scene was done in GMod alone.

  22. Tei says:

    If has been created in 3DMax, is not machinima. Machinima is using the game engine. Using other engine is “cheating”.</pedantic>

  23. C0nt1nu1ty says:

    Its a little rough round the edges but i like it

  24. MeestaNob! says:

    That was ace.

  25. Severian says:

    Brilliant.

  26. sockpuppetclock says:

    Alex Grose: Why does everyone always say these things were made in Gmod?!…

  27. Nahual says:

    @sockpuppetclock

    If it’s supposed to be machinima, it has to be done with the game engine, and gmod is basically the best way to go around it with the source engine.

    I liked the short, yeah, animation was a bit strange at times, but still it’s new animation for the models, which is always good to see. Thumbs up.

    Hi there , i never do this and post it like a machinima , i use mocap for anime , doing 3 or 4 by hand , i used mocap downloaded on the web and mixe the mocap for animation , for baground i take ingame screenshot, and aply it in 3dsmax .
    i just do this for fun and nothing else ;)
