A short machinima, made in Valve’s Source engine, using the Source SDK modding tools. Created for a course at the University of Waterloo in the Winter 2012 term.
Sort of loosely based on the Aesop fable The Farmer and the Cranes. It’s a bit of an attempt to call out old fables for having rather questionable morals with a tinge of dark absurdist humour.
Here’s an alternate take of a scene which, in retrospect, I kind of prefer to the version of the same scene in the actual video.
