The Top 10 Best Source Filmmaker videos so far

9) Practical Problems

Creator: [BIO] Monkey-Junkie

Why It's Great: Second only to Meet the Family, "Practical Problems" has one of the best stories we've seen in a SFM video. This tale of two dueling engineers won our hearts (and the community's as well as it's currently the top-rated video on SFM.) We loved that the creator actually uses some spotty animation to his advantage when the Spy ineptly pretends to fix the turret with the Engineer's wrench.

Our Favorite Part: The look of irritated determination that crosses the Engineer's face every time he tips his helmet forward and gets back to work.


10) Goldrush

Creator: Cosmo

Why It's Great: The camera work on this short video is absolutely insane, and it's the best we've seen so far. The animation is also perfectly synched to the music, giving the whole production an amazing level of energy. Most of all this video just makes TF2 look like a whole lot of fun.

Our Favorite Part: The Demoman rump shake, obviously.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    These were all pretty damn phenomenal.

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

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

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

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