Wow. It's been a long time since we've seen a video like The Hills Have Eggs. Created by Olibith, this movie features an amazing cast of voice actors including Jesse Cox, Shockdingo, Nathalie Berggren, and Genna Bain. The music is by Cirkle, and the sound design is by Caruu. Sound like a big list of talent? It surely is, and the results show in the final product.
Nominally a movie about some lost gnomes and the tragic results, The Hills Have Eggs shows off some of the most mind-blowing animation we've seen in a long time. The acting is fantastic, and the dialogue is creative and hilarious. Everything about this video reaffirms it as a professional, amazing movie.
While I love all genres of machinima, it's a breath of fresh air to see something like this. I'll admit that I was worrying this kind of skillfully produced, cinematic machinima had been lost from the scene. I'm glad that Olibith has proven me wrong in spades.
