A space bounty hunter travels to a lonely planet to kill a terrible monster.. Winner of Best Animation at Woodstock Film Festival, Coney Island Film Festival, Wiz-Art Film Festival, and Bornshorts.. “[A] beautifully timed, perfectly designed homage to all our favorite sci-fi stories. Armstrong has a great eye for detail and his masterful character design reminds us of some of the best 20th century French graphic novel artists. And there’s something about the ending—well you’d have to be a terrible thing yourself not to be touched by it.” - Animation Magazine. "Jake Armstrong’s THE TERRIBLE THING OF ALPHA-9! is not only one of the best student shorts I’ve seen in a long time, it’s one of the finest animated shorts, period...This is a cartoon that is sophisticated in all respects, yet done so expertly that the end results appear effortless.” - Amid Amidi, Cartoon Brew TV
