My favorite videos on the internet are the ones that are difficult to explain. "Why am I watching this? What makes this good?" This video of tiny 3D people falling down is one of those special videos.


VFX artist Dave Fothergill used a crowd-simulator for Maya called Miarmy to make a horde of running people, then knocked them the hell over with a huge rotating block. Like "going to the store" it's not terribly complicated — there's just something soothing about watching wave after wave of those little guys fall down.


Especially Waldo.
