Meet the Sniper

You should know by now that I'm a huge fan of stylized animation in general. I love pretty much everything put out by Valve - they seem to really get it in all areas..storytelling, gameplay, the amount of detail one can or should get away with in a game.

What I admire about this trailer along with all the others is how well paced it is for the content. Whereas the Heavy had slow heavy camera moves and a somber feel to it...this is all about the sense of waiting. The editing as a means of storytelling is particularly strong in this one.
