Kill Internet

Kill Internet walk cycle tester from Ryan Ortgiesen on Vimeo.

When I'm not working for a road construction company, I design websites. It's nice to have two completely different things to do. One, which involves monotonous, back-breaking labor; the other, sedentary, insanely-frustrating, complacency. While designing websites, I'll complete some small, menial task and lie to myself that I should be rewarded for my five minutes of work. This often involves going on to Facebook or watching an episode of Venture Brothers. All in all, these rewards take up 30 percent of my day. Some times I'll lose all motor functions and stare at the screen for minutes on end daydreaming about killing the internet, killing it dead.

So, trying to be a paid animator, who does websites, I decided I would make a short film about my utter frustration and aversion toward the internet that designing websites has brought me too. This is a tester of the "me" character walking into the large, corporate internet building where destruction ensues.
