Sep 10 2010Stop-Motion Pixel Pac-Man Made With People
Just like Soylent Green! As you may recall from the Tetris one (but probably don't because that was two-and-a-half years ago), Guillaume Reymond creates stop motion video game videos as part of Project GAME OVER. This is one such video. So if you were hoping for a Corgi bellyflopping off a dock, sorry, you're gonna have to look elsewhere (read: search Youtube, dummy).
PAC-MAN was played by real human-beings sitting in a cinema: it's the 5th video performance of the GAME OVER Project from the French-Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond. This stop-motion video was shot and played for the new ProHelvetia's programme GameCulture at the Trafo cinema (Baden, Switzerland) on August 28th 2010. This giant game was played by 111 human pixels that has moved from seat to seat during more than 4 hours...
Damn, 111 people playing musical chairs for 4 hours? I don't know how you did it. Because the last time I was working on my own genius video project I couldn't get three friends to walk down the street for five f***ing seconds. And that was the day I realized that, not only does nobody believes in me, but I have no friends. So you wanna know what I did that night? Got the drunkest I've ever been.
Hit it for the worth-a-watch video.
Thanks to Uncle_FUJ, who knew Soylent Green was people all along and loved every bite. Okay, sicko.
