Short Film: A Stick Figure Drawing Destroys The Computer That Drew It

What happens when the crude artwork you draw in Photoshop becomes sentient and gains superpowers and starts darting across your desktop screen with weapons? A whole lot of desktop destruction. Even worse, the stick figure will draw goons to help them ruin your computer forever. But it will be fun to see.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Alan Becker’s Animation vs Animator series. He writes:

The struggle between a stick figure and its creator, a computer animator. In this fourth instalment , 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, travelling onto his iPhone via USB cord, and drawing animations of his own to dismantle the animation interface.

The first few minutes of the video sets up the back story of the stick figure so it starts off a little slow. I really enjoyed it when the stick figure jumps to the iPhone through a USB cable around the five-minute mark.
