‘The Wizard of Speed and Time’ by Mike Jittlov

Every single person in the world needs to see this 1979 short by Mike Jittlov.

Remember there’s no trick printing, no CGI, and no complex mechanical effects. Try and figure out how it’s all done. I’m bamboozled. It you want to see more then the films is on YouTube.

Here’s the trailer:

Another awesome thesis project.

Blurb: 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.
