Fed-up with his team's recent decline in performance, the RED Medic decides to take matters into his own hands and starts going on a killing spree on his own. However, doing so only leads him to being accused as a "battle medic"...

Alright. This was originally going to be my submission for this year's Saxxy Awards. Unfortunately, when I tried to upload it via SFM's Saxxy Award video submission, hours later, I got an error message that said, "There was a problem uploading the movie. Please check your internet connection settings and try again." Three times, I attempted, and three times, the upload failed; that same error message always keeps popping up.

Ultimately, I gave up. x_x Still, I would like to thank anyone out there who suggested me to join the awards. It's no big deal, really. The truth is, I'm not interested with joining the awards. And besides, after looking at some of the more awesome Saxxy Awards entries, I know I will never gonna win. Oh well, for those who *did* manage to upload for the Saxxy Awards, I wish y'all good luck.

About the animation itself, the original title was going to be just "Dummkopfs!". But a friend of mine later advised me to add the subtitle "A Medic Problem". Once again, the entire character animation was animated within the motion editor alone. This time, however, I did use the graph editor instead for a few camera animations in some shots, in order to get a smooth and constant camera motion for those shots. I really enjoyed animating the RED Soldier's helmet; I want to match the way the Soldier's helmet wobbles about as in Meet The Soldier.

Again, this was rendered at 64x depth of field and 64x motion blur. 5 hours to render. I did try to render it at a much higher 128x quality instead; however, halfway through the render, SFM froze, so I stick to just 64x quality at the moment until I get to buy a much better computer in the future.
