Line Riders - Beethoven's 5th

Follow by Email
I spent over 3 months synchronizing a line rider track to Beethoven's 5th drawing everything by hand. Any time a character leaves the screen they are being directed by unseen lines to the next location. This is not the full length of the piece. I spliced together parts to make it possible for me to finish the project in a practical amount of time. I don't think my sanity could handle 3 more months of this song. YouTube post processing seems to create a few millisecond audio delay if you are watching on the mobile YouTube app. If you notice this, watching the video in any web browser won't have this problem. Thanks again to Conundrumer for technical support for supporting multiple riders. Here is his channel and link to closed beta: Symphony No. 5 Ludwig van Beethoven, Business Contact:


OriGuy : 1:40 was the greatest plot twist ever

Michael Sorensen : Wife: "what are you doing?" Me: "watching Beethoven's 5th" Wife: "" Me: "yup!"

Brodu Sullivan : the fact that you made everyone keep coming back and in sync and had so much stuff to fix and rework and look at and examine and edit and listen to over and over again. this guy is an absolute Legend among line riders and youtube.

Marcel Torretta : Ok.. That raises the bar for people to impress me...

Enchilordo : Imagine someone you love dying and then their body repeatedly zooms past you at 300 miles per hour at random intervals.

M M : I was so happy when his friend came back, but then i realized it was another friend and then he dies too.... what a world we live in.

Babyboodle : This video is a metaphor for a woman who finds her true love after the stresses of her life build up, and she is finally able to relax. Sooner than expected, she is widowed, and after the death of her spouse she falls into a downward spiral. Then, she meets another love that eases the pain of her loss. In time the memories of her past spouse flash before her, and crisis strikes as her current spouse also dies. She continues thinking of them both until her own death. Truly an emotional ride.

Elliott Pique : 0:42 : oh look there is green dude 1:38 : OH NO HE FELL OFF 2:09 : hey look blue guy blackflips into action 2:36 : OH SNAP GREEN DUDE IS STILL ALIVE oh wait he died again 2:43 : WAIT HE'S STILL GOING oh wait he died for the third time 2:58 : AND NOW BLUE GUY DIES ;O; 3:22 : ok someone explain to me how the hell did green and blue survive 3:39 : and now they're gone again 4:06 : hey look at that, they're all re-united ! 4:14 : thank god happy ending 4:16 : NOOOOOO GREEN NOT AGAIN

lostinthelookingglas : This is brilliant not only because of the synching with the music, but also because of the sheer physical comedy of all those flailing bodies coming from nowhere

aSongScout : I've loved your other ones but this is on another level with the amount of off-camera timing and synchronization needed to keep six moving parts bouncing around and coming in and out of frame at the exact right time. It's like a virtual engineering masterpiece. I'm truly wowed.

Legominder : This is the best visualisation of music I have seen:) Even for me as musician being a visual type it makes it so much more easy to attentively follow! I had to laugh so hard. So cutely ardent. This would be the ultimate model for silent movie piano and modern movie music.

River Dantes : 4:10 Wow! It really isn't particularly easy being green. Kermit was right.

SparkyssSpot : What instrument do you play? DoodleChaos: "Well that's a bit complicated"

Piyush Baroliya : Beethoven would be very happy as he could see his music

Julien Woimbee : Beethoven was so talented to be able to compose a music based on 2 riders riding a line.

E OC : This is where 1am YouTube surfing got me... And I do not regret it

Gilbert TheRegular : A masterpiece. Both music and sync.

pastelcity :P : I felt like this was a movie. I cried halfway through it XD

yeet yote : *no line riders were harmed in the making of this video*

Felix Palmberg : I've seen so many songs done in this game but this one is honestly my favourite

hannah : yo.. this is like next level art

Kimbo Slice : 2:58 lmao RIP green dude Edit: apparently he was blueƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ

Peter Jensen : Getting millions of people to listen to classical music... that alone makes you a genius

Rabid Squirrel / Ben Harvey : Dude this is your best work yet! The offsled Boshes flying by were hilarious!! Loved it!!!!!

Federica Cate. : Hi! Excuse me, can I put this on my graduation thesis? Obvoiusly, with all references, my work it's about opera and contemporary art. I want to take a little piece of the video and play it in front of the degree panel. Thank you.

Christian Dilena : I give props to you for spending three months on this! Phenomenal job!!

Aqua : Mom: Where do you want to go biking? Me: *beethoven's fith*

Safia Fraga : Bravo! This video makes exciting and realy enjoying Beethoven

Casandra Bitter : I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard this, but your doodles are helping the deaf community understand the music better! They can SEE it all happening!

Charles Randal : 1:37 it was at this moment, the line rider mourned the loss of his mate, and contemplated life for the following 12 seconds.

Bentley Minott : It would’ve been better if you zoomed out and the lines in the video drew something or made a drawing. E.g this is around Beethoven so it should be his face

Pascal Y-P : damn. mate. woah. very nicely done.

Nikki B : This was hilarious and awesome, love it!

DaksDominos : This was definitely your best work yet! It was amazing how the riders kept coming back! Encore! Encore!

DeLollers Preysler : This could be a nice mobile game. Just saying. Think about it.

SUPERWALUGI 64 : How about: Line riders - Hungarian dance?

Javier Lopez : press F for green at the end

Aaron Zamora : Just when you thought the other riders are gone, they come back! I was awed. truly awesome synchronization.

Maia MacMahon : As a violinist I can verify that this is what goes on in our heads as we play music

Marble Racing Studios : Who else has noticed that the sled riders blink?

Pato : This goes beyond music or art, it´s pure life (and death) :P

Rain Storm : The sycronization is off the charts Or should I say Off the sleds

death94 : My favorite part of this composition is the flying carcasses. :D

Mia Pisacane : Any and all music lovers HAVE to watch this video

Andy Chen : Only gryffindors survived.

Mr. Sheetz : This truly shows dedication I love Beethoven but this made it 💯 times better thank u and the timing is on point

thaurane : It dawned on me why I like your line riders video so much more than the others. You make the rider "dance" (for a lack of a better word) SO much better. Others focus on just the lines or just throwing the rider about but you manage to do both really well.

Taikamuna : 1:38 top 10 anime deaths

JaxmanDaBoss : I absolutely love this video so much, I have so much respect for this. ITS SO AMAZING I LOVE THIS SONG I LOVE YOU
