Was thanked: 3 time(s) in 3 post(s)
It’s incredible what a fellow can do with a lot of free time, a virtually unlimited supply of Post-It notes, and a camera. YouTube user Michael Birken posted an amazing video of stop-motion 8-bit animation from Mrs. Pac Man and Donkey Kong.

He recreated scenes from actual gameplay footage, noting that “the recordings were printed out, one frame at a time, and transferred by hand to various walls around my office floor using thousands of Post-It Notes.”


It took Biken 11 months and a lot of weekends and holidays to create the video, as well as nearly 5,000 Post-Its. One of the techniques he employed to maintain a sense of stillness and consistency is that he used still photos for the background and then superimposed the stop-motion animation on top.

Stop motion arcade

The result is a happy reminder of arcade games that were. Hats off to Birken, his place of business, and all of the free time he has.

Love this, I commented on the site about it. It's really cool to see this kind of love for the 8-bit characters is still alive. I miss single player gaming ie, one life each, winner stays on and if you lived for an hour your friends had to just sit there and wait their turn lol. Flip side, you got the controller in your hand and died within 30 second.  lol
