Andrew Kepple is a flash animator from New Zealand (currently residing in Canada). He started out in 1999 under the online handle Too Much Spare Time (or just TmsT) and have since then produced quite a few viral and semi-viral animations. It is probably safe to say that he has been with the Internet since it really started to go big, and has had a hand in laying the foundation for quite a bit of Internet culture.
In 2003, after making and running a few webcomics, from which the most well-known is perhaps Goodbye Cruel World, Kepple took great interest in Flash animation. His first big break was his Animutation videos, amongst them the famous Colin Mochrie vs. Jesus H. Christ fanimutrilogy, which became quite popular in the fanimutation community. Kepple would later have a couple of rather fruitful collaborations with the father of Animutation, Neil Cicierega, which resulted in some Animated Music Video based on some of Neil's early Lemon Demon songs.
Andrew Kepple's body of work includes:
- The Colin Mochrie vs. Jesus H. Christ fanimutrilogy, the first of which, French Erotic Film, has nothing to do with porn from France.
