Finally finished it!
I just needed one more month.
Clearly this video is way too late for the competition that ended more than two weeks ago. But hey, why waste all the effort put into this by putting it on the shelf, right?
Using a combination of Stop-Motion Animation and After Effects, this music video was possible. (Special thanks again to my mother for creating the costume for my puppet.)
Hope you guys enjoy this video as much as I have enjoyed making it.
Thanks again for all the awesome comments on the unfinished version of this video. Hope it was worth the wait to see the final product.
Also thanks for Valve for holding this competition (though I didn't get to enter my finished entry) to allow me to be inspired to create this video. Continue to make awesome games guys! (Like they're ever gonna read this...)
