Fun fact: this video is a single 90 second shot containing over 350 animsets. Yes. it got a little out of hand. This is a Saxxy entry. I originally intended to break my writers block by doing a spin on Kanye' West's Fantastic "Power" music video, but things quickly snowballed out of control. All told this video actually only took about 3 days of real work to complete 99% of it. but by then the project file was so bloated that it would literally take 10-30 seconds simply to click on something. So eventually my frustration with the program overcame my desire to cram more stuff and polish in there. You'll find this still syncs up well to the kanye song too.
Major Props go out to JimboMcb with his fantastic rigging work as well as his L4D2 compatibility pack, and to Jp Neufeld (100 apologies for the typo man : ( ), for remixing the Midnight Ride song. Minor props as well to Narry Gewman for his fancy mocap dancing, and to James Mcvinnie for his expert advice.
