Andreas Heikaus takes Super Mario Bros to the StreetJuxtapoz // Sunday, 15 May 2011
There will always be a fascination for the classic Super Mario Bros video game. The 8-bit landmark seems to draw re-interpretations, and here, Andreas Heikaus takes Mario to the streets with an emphasis on the process of matching CG elements into live-action footage.
Below is the actually project, and then, a how-to process video about what Andreas was creating. As Andreas says of the project, "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."
