Fantastic Short Film Friday - Pixels (live-action/animated)

And we are back with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.

This week we have for you an incredibly imaginative look at video games and how they can slowly take over our lives. Here is a 3-minute live action animated short called, Pixels from filmmaker, Patrick Jean. This is a wonderful blend of live-action and animation and is a must see for anyone who grew up playing video games in the 80's.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet just like the short. Pixels sees New York invaded by a bunch of 8-bit creatures (such as Donkey Kong and Pac-Man - Pacman eats our subway dots!) who slowly start turning the city into pixilized chaos which quickly spreads, taking over the rest of the world.

Check this out if you're in the mood to honestly have your mind blown away. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and am amazed it looked this good. There's true genius at work here people. Enjoy this weeks dose of short form goodness in, Pixels.
