1. This video was part of my Bachelor thesis at the University of Applied science and art Hannover. The Super Mario Bros. game, released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, is not longer bound to the television size and get interactive with a new environment. The emphasis of my thesis is on the matchmoving work. It is the process of matching CG elements into live-action footage.

    „Irgendwann vor einiger Zeit ist das Königreich der friedlichen Pilzmenschen von den Kupas erobert worden, einem Schildkrötenvolk, das wegen seiner schwarzen Magie berüchtigt ist. Die gemütlichen, ruheliebenden Pilzmenschen wurden in Steine, Ziegel, ja sogar Unkräuter verwandelt, und ihr Königreich verfiel. Die einzige, die den Zauber wieder rückgängig machen und den Pilzmenschen ihre Gestalten zurückgeben könnte, ist Prinzessin Fliegenpilz , die Tochter des Pilzmenschenkönigs. Aber Sie befindet sich leider in der Gewalt des mächtigen Kupaschildkröten-Königs. Mario, (vielleicht) der Held der Geschichte, hört von der Not der Pilzmenschen und macht sich auf, die Prinzessin aus den Händen der bösen Kupas zu befreien und das zerfallene Pilzmenschenreich zu erlösen. Du kannst Mario sein! Es liegt jetzt an dir, die Pilzmenschen von der schwarzen Magie zu befreien!“

  2. The idea is based on a kind of parody of the former Socialist building style. They used to build whole cities where each house was designed identically to create cheap housing for workers. These ‘blocks’ were so similar that in Soviet times, you could easily wake up at a friends place in another city and still feel like you are in your flat. Even the furniture was the same.

  3. This is a university video-project made by "Game Design"-students from munich.
    Done in a single-shot fashion...well almost single shot =)
    The film covers different eras of the video-game history.

    Took us a week to organise the various props (controllers, monitors. lighting, camera, etc.), two whole days to film and several days of postproduction.
    It isn't perfect, but hopefully fun to watch nevertheless ,)

    Thanks for watching! Keep on gaming...

    //EDIT:
    We're quite aware that we could have used more games or different games but we just wanted to show a small insight into the history of videogames that just shows how far we've come and where our roots are buried.
    A small FAQ:
    There are Playstation 1,2 and 3 devices, just pay close attention or read the credits =)
    I noticed that many of you are missing the XBox and Halo on it. It was planned but my friend with the controller called me just before the day of the shooting and said he couldn't find it =( Sorry
    Ecco and the dreamcast were mainly meant to show a flop in game history (please don't kill me for saying that =) ! If you have a different opinion on this one it's cool. We don't mean to insult anyone).
    Why didn't we just cover...everything?!—due to the limited time that we had for this project it was hard enough to gather all controllers and output devices we used. And we're quite aware that it's not always the best possible combination of game pad and monitor =)
    We didnt use XBox Kinect or Playstation Move because the technology isn't new.
    And remember this is (almost) a one-shot (= no cuts used) => the more games/controllers, the harder it gets—one mistake and you can start over.
    We captured a total of 45takes.
    If you're interested visit vimeo once in a while, we're up to make a little "Making Of".
