Created by Malcolm Sutherland, a self-proclaimed “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” superfan, the animated video was a passion project for the Canadian animator.
“Ever since I read the original black and white comics as a kid I have been a fan,” he explained on his Vimeo account. “In 'TMNT' Vol. 1 by Mirage Studios they frequently had guest artists and almost every comic was a totally different style. In particular, when I read #37 and #42 By Rick McCollum & Bill Anderson it totally changed my life …”
Sutherland's also pretty self-aware about the upside-down, crushed blue solo cup nature of fan videos. He further added, “I know its super nerdy to make fan videos but I don't care, making this was like my 10 year old dreams come true.” Nerdiness aside, gotta respect his blantant disregard for the general rules and regulations. Solid work.
