Shamelessly poached from this unlisted An0nymooose video
This is a remix of a song from door-closing simulator Hotel Mario. It sputters to life, creaks and skrrnts, and then glides into motion, hitting the highway by the end.
Did I somehow not post this? How did I not post this?! I am panicked, sweating, at the prospect of having failed to share this, my favorite video of the past month. I feel like An0nymooose’s source songs become more complex with each new clip, which is so impressive considering his mode of creating a story FROM the song.
It’s not quite the future of stop motion animation, but it’s certainly futuristic. I suspect in 5 years, there will be super intuitive spinoffs of Steam Filmmaker available to kids and the young-at-heart. Scratches the same itch as 3D Movie Maker for Windows did me… But Steam Filmmaker has a slightly higher bar for entry.
Palate cleanser and my source for the Kartna song shared below.
Think they’re accepting applications?
Content aside, this is a short film featuring a story performed by stop-motioned video game character models that also acts as a music video to a remix of the Thomas The Tank Engine theme song composed entirely out of a pitched-up-and-down grunt from Childish Gambino’s “Sweatpants.” Huh.
I’ve watched it a bunch.
