Animator vs Animation Returns

It’s been three years to the day since Alan Becker released Animator vs. Animation III. After a successful Kickstarter campaign last August, the fourth installment is here and it’s awesome.


The struggle between a stick figure and its creator, a computer animator. In this fourth installment, the animator is finally shown in real life interacting with his computer monitor. The stick figure, resisting his tormentor, attacks his social life by hacking his Facebook account, traveling onto his iPhone via USB cord, and drawing animations of his own to dismantle the animation interface.

If you’ve never seen the series before, I’ve embedded the previous installments below. Enjoy!

Part 1

Originally made in 2006, entirely with Adobe Flash.

Part 2

The animator, looking for a challenge, decides to make the stick figure harder to beat. Little does he know exactly how much power he is giving to the little guy. Long live The Chosen One!

Part 3

The third episode of the Animator vs. Animation series.
“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.
