The Brilliant And Funny Short Film 'Animator Vs. Animation IV' Imagines What Would Happen If A Stick Figure Came To Life

Talented high school student Alan Becker created his first Animator Vs Animated short - depicting the struggle between a stick figure and its creator - in 2006.

Now, thanks to Kickstarter, he's created the fourth instalment. And it's a gem.

Watch the stick figure hacking into his creator's Facebook account, getting into his iPhone via its USB cord and generally creating havoc. It even creates animations of its own - and that, in turn, leads to a very lovely ending.

The whole thing is clever, funny - and at times even rather dark. Bravo, Mr Becker. We look forward to episode IV!
