The Top 10 Best Source Filmmaker videos so far

5) Meet the Family

Creator: TheDKer

Why It's Great: This video is equal parts exciting and adorable. The dialogue and story in Meet the Family are second to none. Other videos have better animation and camera work, but Meet the Family won us over with its beautiful look at a father/son team. We also like the idea of this video as fan fiction which adds to the meta story of Team Fortress 2.

Our Favorite Part: The smile on SpyDad's face. "Shall we?"


6) Adventures of the F2P Engineer #3

Creator: DasMatze

Why It's Great: This video is mostly here as an envoy for all four episodes of the Adventures of the F2P Engineer, which spoofs the actions of a new TF2 player who tries to tackle one of the most difficult classes. The closing "success" splash image is what makes this whole series work. We give the creator extra kudos for coming up with a concept that could sustain multiple entries.

Our Favorite Part: The subtle point the Engineer makes at the teleporter as it opens. Comic perfection.

    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.

    what no Save as .dmx

    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.

    10 videos..... in 4 pages. Thanks a lot.
