Commentary for Minions Must Die
I don’t usually do topical videos, but I was struck with some inspiration. So many minions on my facebook feed, juxtaposed with text that has nothing at all to do with them. It’s enough to drive a man mad. So I made this little cathartic cartoon. I hope others can enjoy it too.
And even if it weren’t for the facebook stuff. I still don’t really like minions. They were only just tolerable in Despicable Me. I can’t imagine sitting through a movie of just minions. They’re not cute, they’re annoying. They make these faces that cause me to want to slap them. But since they aren’t real, I did the next best thing.
I actually got this idea only a few days before the movie came out, (in North America) so I had to rush things. About a weeks work went into this in all. I’m not 100% satisfied with the ending, I wanted something more spectacular. A lot of the frame by frame is pretty rough. And there were a few ideas I didn’t have time to use. (Notably electrocution, and having a minion as the toy holder in a Kinder Surprise)
Really came down to the last minute with this one. It’s 2:30 am when I’m typing this. Just finished the editing at midnight (sound effects were a bitch, had to make a bunch myself) and I’m only now done with the thumbnail and write up.
