    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!“

      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 ,) Games: Tennis for Two, Oscilloscope, 1958 Pacman, Arcade, 1980 Donkey Kong, NES, 1986 Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, 1991 Street Fighter II. SNES, 1991 Super Mario 64, Nintendo 64, 1996 Final Fantasy VII, Sony Playstation, 1997 Need for Speed: Hot Pursiut 2, Sony Playstation 2, 2002 Ecco the Dolphin, Sega Dreamcast, 2000 Super Smash Bros. Melee, Nintendo Game Cube, 2001 Wii Sports Golf, Nintendo Wii, 2006 God of War III, Sony Playstation 3, 2010 Rock Band, XBox 360, 2008 Rock Band Song: "Social Code" by Satisfied Credits Music: "Luminous" by Geir Tjelta By: Moritz Freyer Fabian Steiner Florian Smolka Lucas Reiner Additional Special Thanks To: Lena Hartl for having the guts to lend us her cam =) Comments appreciated 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".

        ///A Film directed and animated by MUSCLEBEAVER/// This animation we did was planned and animated for the prologue of a documentary. (That explains the absurd, unfinished seeming, ending.That is where the actual documentary starts.... ) The briefing was to show an evolution of computer games. The documentary itself is about different people, based here in germany, showing their everyday life, and their addiction to the same specific, famous MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role playing game):"Wo.." Every game character in this prologue was reinterpreted, redrawn (...one pixel at a time), and animated frame by frame.

But it will be too late; and I’ll walk on silent among the men who don’t look back, with my secret." my website www.motiongraphic.it location vancouver software used -pftrack -maya -photoshop -realflow -nuke music and soundFX by Names Ajay Bhattacharyya Amy Kirkpatrick www.namesmusic.ca please give me suggestions and critics to improve my work!

              --------------------------- art and animation by Cory Godbey www.corygodbey.com http://lightnightrains.blogspot.com musical arrangement by Henry Benjamin Kammer www.tideislevel.com --------------------------- Volume One comics, 1 - 12 : http://tinyurl.com/bitandrun Volume Two comics, 1 - 13 : http://tinyurl.com/bitandrunv2 Hey everyone, once again I want to take a moment and thank you all. I've said it many times before but I'll say it again, it's truly been a pleasure for me to do these comics. I'm especially gleeful for this one, the final installment of Volume One, because in a way it's a small fulfillment of one of those childhood wishes -- I used to draw out Mario levels and characters on graph paper. I'd move them around and make the little paper Mario jump on the paper Goombas and think, "Man, I wish I could record this." Fast forward some 20 years later and I've finally gotten around to doing something like it. Here's to the 6 year old in your past who always liked to draw cartoons. "bit and run" will return on Friday, August 6th with Volume Two.
