JarodWhile jay is games is technically about, well, games, many of the visitors are also flash developers in general, and those of us who aren't (like me) sometimes reach a level of exposure that can only be classified "connoisseur."

Animator vs. AnimationThat is to say, we've seen enough of it that we can recognize what's good, what's bad, and what's good despite itself. (Warning: Coarse language.)

So for a less interactive experience (between bouts with the point-and-click adventures that are bountiful these days), I present to you just a few of the animations out there to watch.

Animator vs. Animation, by 17-year-old Alan Becker, draws a scene in the epic wars waged between the drawing and the drawn. Tensions draw high as the action starts simple and accelerates both in quantity and quality through the work, and the clever manipulation of screenshots will likely draw the appreciative attention of anyone who's ever worked in flash.

Short but sweet, the animation is anything but drawn out.

I liked the animation; I found it on Newgrounds. It was like #1 when I watched it. Though it was quite entertaining and a lot of fun to watch, I don't understand why it was the top animation because I've really seen better.

Anyway, good find. I hope that JIG sticks to its guns and keeps primarily reviewing games (there are plenty of mixed media sites out there, but JIG and lazylaces are the only two good sites that I have found that review mostly games) but I certainly don't mind a break every once in a while.

that's my 2 1/2 cents.

Thanks for your input, Scramble. Sticking to games, predominantly casual games, is the plan around here. But it's nice to share some of the exceptional work being done in new media these days. So, you should expect the unexpected here as well. ;)

Ahh, I enjoyed that plenty. I don't check out much flash animation, but occasionally it is great, especially when it's something really creative, witty and well done as this one. Thanks for posting.

Aah! Loved it. Very imaginative.
Loved the other one about the nuke, too.
How's that for reality check.

From what I understand, WTF stands for Woohoo-Tata-Furray. (cute, eh?) Woohoo-tata-furray is going on in this world!

This was a truly well done piece of animation . Specially fascinating were the parts where the 'Victim' seize's the Brush tool . 2 Thumb's up .

Oh man. I didn't even see the first link to the end of the world, another flash I'm familiar with, this one from ABS. That's probably one of the funniest flashes I've ever seen!

I love this! A quick little time waster.

Kinda reminds me of my flash cartoons. None of mine could ever be as good as this though.

i'm not a big fan of flash animations, but this one was quite clever, and not over the top like many of them turn out to be.

very creative to see it all unfold.

but i'm glad to hear that jayisgames will stay predominantly games.

Very creative animation. Particularly entertaining to those of us who have done work in Flash.

Just to be sure, did you get permission from them to use this? Cause eBaum's getting sued because they decompiled it without permission. Unless you can link freely, in which case never mind.
And the flash rocks.

Casey - yes, we are linking responsibly (as is the policy here at JIG) to an offical host of the piece.

We do not decompile anything here, nor do we host content without the permission of the content author.

Cheers for your concern, though! =)

i hope to god the suit against bauman is successful. i'm darn sick of him.

in other news, i really dig this little animation. my little brother is just getting into animation himself, and from what it looks like, that's just what it is like learning to use flash (:

Hi,

I saw your animation through a link posted here:

http://www.spinquad.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12588

Must have took alot of planning to pull something like that off.

Excellent work anyway, and only 17. I'm sure you will go far.

Best Wishes

When I watched that, I kept seeing the cursor moving around and I thought it was mine. I kept moving mine around because I kept forgetting the point f the animation and I thought that I had accidentally opened up the drop down menu. >.>

if you want now how to unlock everything check the animator tutorial again. On the left side something is high lighted in grey click the bar below it and it tells objectives of being the animation. Go down one more and it tells you how to unlock everything.

hyas, just wanted to say animator vs animation game really rocks. I found it on stick page via stick humor. if you could make a game for like you already did but on the desktop it would be really fun. I think you should ask the advice of your fans if you are going to make a animator vs animation 3. like have the animation draw himself some more phisical features.

thanks for the films
