The Top 10 Best Source Filmmaker videos so far

3) The Sniper Mariachi

Creator: TOLIK

Why It's Great: This is a really short video, but we loved it anyway for the incredible amount of personality it manages to cram into seven short seconds. The animation is also very fluid, and extremely well matched to the music. It's simple, but it's also lean and cuts right to the point. What's the point? The sniper is acting goofy. Stop over-thinking it.

Our Favorite Part: Those steely eyes, and the wave of the hand as he exits stage left.


4) Those Aren't Pillows

Creator: Dan the Man

Why It's Great: This video is representative of one of the most common trends in the Source Filmmaker community: recreating movie segments. The main reason being that you get great audio for free. We particularly enjoyed this one because the video-maker went that extra mile to include a little something beyond the content of the original film.

Our Favorite Part: The shear tenderness of that ear kiss.

    Nah, Practical Problems was easily the best. That was something you'd see before a feature length Pixar flick.

    Open the box and the talent falls out - "...makes it harder for the rest!"

    I personally loved this video: It was just an edit of the provided Meet the Heavy, but I thought it was hilarious.

    I though Save as .dmx was going to make this list for sure =(

    These were all pretty damn phenomenal.

    Practical Problems should be much higher. Really gets the TF2 atmosphere right.

    It's not really in any particular order, though I did save my favorites for the last page.

    I thought about this one, but opted not to put it on the list. For one it's already really popular, so it's kind of a waste to put it on there, as I really wanted to introduce people to more vids. .dmx has probably 20x the views of any of the others. Also it's so incomplete. I'm OK with short vids, but something like Sniper Mariachi is still a complete piece despite being only 7 seconds long. DMX ends out of nowhere. If they ever finish it, I wouldn't be surprised if we did an entire post just to spotlight that amazing piece of work.

    No Dictator? Seriously, type in Dictator in youtube and you will get an awesome experience. You might think the video is kind of stupid but it plays off of the quote so well.
