Cooooool: Mexican Graveyard Becomes Projection Mapped Day Of The Dead Cartoon After Dark

August 21, 2014

This is a video from the Panteón de Dolores, a 590-acre cemetery in Mexico (the country's largest) with some 700,000 graves. That is a lot of graves. In my backyard? Just a single guinea pig grave. But beyond the fence? An ancient Indian burial ground. And trust me, you don't want to go burying anything back there, not even G.I. Joes.

With all of those slabs of granite and marble around, the Mexico City animation collective Llama Rada got to thinking: "What if we use the tombstones of the cemetery as screens to project a vibrant, living cartoon?"

And this is the result: a day of the dead cartoon that reminded me a lot of the style ofGuacamelee! That was a fun game. I thought I was going to be able to Platinum it too but I couldn't because all the platforming parts to get the hidden orbs were too hard for me. So if anybody wants to come over and get those for me, that would be much appreciated. I will provide beer and snacks. At least until you collect all the orbs, then I'll take the beer and snacks away and pretend to be sleepy and ask you to leave.

Keep going for the worthwhile video.
