A fight between an 8-bit superhero and a high-def boss, in a retro-gaming world.

Programmer’s Note: Assaulting the senses with dazzling visual imagery and gloriously over-the-top action, this high-octane animated adventure plays with classic video-game archetypes while simultaneously concocting its own fully rendered environment. Collectively directed by Valere Amirault, Sarah Laufer, Jean Delaunay, and Benjamin Mattern, the film displays the considerable talents of all four artists in developing an atmospheric anomaly of stylistic bravado that fashions a fight between an 8-bit superhero and a high-def boss in a retrogaming world. Much appreciated for the painstaking hard work involved as well as the fast-paced clarity of the result, “8BITS” is a welcome shot in the arm for any program.

Retro City Invasion (16 Bit Live Action Short Film Part 1)

BEEN WORKING ON THIS ALL SUMMER, Took about a month or 2 to make and animate and edit and do pixel art etc… Okay guys this is my last Pizzaman Production of the summer and from the highschool life. This is the story of 2 gamers who’s city suddenly gets invaded by a 16 bit race called “The Cipterians” after gaming some Dota 2. Why are they invading? Well it’s simple, The Cipterians don’t want the Modern generation to excel so they make us gamers play retro games till they take over the world. It’s up to Jon and Daniel (Yes we are using our own names haha) to stop them. Visual Effects: Took about a few weeks or so to do in After Effects, Pixel art/Cipterian concept: Daniel Pianezza made them in Photoshop (took over a month to animate), and Sony vegas was used to put the whole thing together. Hope you all enjoy and thanks Jon for helping me out with this, means alot bro! I do not own any of the rights to the music in tis video. All rights go to the composers of the songs, this is a non-profit video. BTW THIS IS JUST PART 1, I FILMED SO MUCH FOOTAGE WITH JON THAT A PART 2 WILL COME OUT CHRISTMAS. Altogether you are looking at a film around 20 or so mins long. ENJOY
