As I previously stated I have been playing around with GraphicsGale and creating really strange small pixel animations for my own pleasure only. The above video is the result of two days (around 16 hrs) fooling around with the program - and my first endeavor in the 8 bit realm since the early 90'es.
My good friend producer and musician extraordinaire, Henrik Sjørslev, did the sound design and got totally free hands. Unpurposely because of the bitcrusher the sound became very David O'reilley-esque. A thing David figured out quite early, and one of the many reasons his works are so great, is that there is something amazing about emotional conversations acted out in ice cold monotone voices. He has been able to get under the skin and display true emotions on very synthetic characters in very synthetic universes. After a bit of pondering I decided to keep it. Mainly because Henrik did a killer job on it, and I cant stop bursting out in laughter at the end of the clip every time I see it (I didn't have that before the sound, mind ya - I thought it was funny, but not haha funny) + I think it fits very well to the mood and style of the animation.
If you don't know Davids work, you should definitely go check out his homepage - and go through it all! It isn't just his animations that are quite refreshing (especially PSS, that won him the golden bear at last years Berlinale - and about 800 other prizes) but also his approach to animation in general - such as his theories, his dogmas, visual observations and manifests...
