    Alan Becker's Animation

    My daughter came across Alan Becker's animations and they are very good and cute!

    From the FAQs on his his Website

    How long did it take to make that?

    - Animator vs. Animation – 3 months
    - Animator vs. Animation II – 5 months
    - Animator vs. Animation: the Game – 7 months
    - Animator vs. Animation III – 1 year

    Can you teach me how to do that?
    - Sure! Watch my tutorial series! www.youtube.com/alanbeckertutorials

    What college did you attend when you made Animator vs. Animation?
    I was a junior in high school when I made it, so any colleges that say that I attended their school when I made it are LYING. I am currently a student at Columbus College of Art and Design, and learning professional animation techniques.

    Animator vs. Animation



    This is the animation that went viral. I don’t remember exactly how or when I came up with the idea. I was kind of fooling around with Flash when I started it. As I worked on it, the story became more and more complex. It took me three months to finish it, from March to June 2006. I submitted it to Newgrounds.com, hoping that people would like it and give it a 5/5. Next day, I find out that it won 2nd place for the whole day! Wow! I didn’t think it would do that well. That’s just great. But then it won 1st place for the entire month, and I got a T-shirt, $250, and a Retarded Animal Babies DVD. No way! Awesome. After that I signed onto AIM, and I got deluged by new fans and website owners. I almost sold the rights to my animation to some random website for, like, $75, I forget, but Steve from AlbinoBlackSheep.com saved my butt as I was about to email the contract. Long story short, I developed a relationship with atom.com, at the time known as AtomFilms. They hosted my animation non-exclusively and sponsored the making of Animator vs. Animation II, which came out the end of that summer, ’06.

    You’ll find this in 34,982 videos on YouTube, all with different names, different image qualities. I didn’t upload it to YouTube myself until there were already 4,576 copies of it already up there (I’m making up these numbers btw).

    Since this became a viral video, my name became internationally recognized. I would meet people for the first time and they would go “aren’t you the dude who did the animation with the stick figure?” And half of people I talked to about my animation would say “oh yeah my friend showed me that a while ago..”

    This animation has been on CNN, Wall Street Journal, and in film festivals around the world. Who knows where it will go next.

    Animator vs. Animation II


    This animation took five months to complete. I made it half because I wanted to, and half because I was being sponsored by AtomFilms. Thanks to them, this animation won the “People’s Choice Award” at the Webby Awards in 2007. Sweet!
    I stuck this animation in my portfolio to enter into the Scholastic Scholarship Competition, and won a $44,000 scholarship to CCAD, which is where I’m going right now. Sweet!

    The final episode of the Animator vs. Animation trilogy.
    "The Chosen One" from episode two is trapped inside the Animator's internet explorer in forced labor as a pop-up blocker. This segment follows his eventual escape onto Microsoft Word, Solitaire, Minesweeper, and the desktop.

    Made entirely in Adobe Flash.

    Finally on YouTube!
