This short is sure to elicit some nostalgic delight in anyone familiar with the old arcade games of the 1970s and 80s including Frogger and Space Invaders.
In Game Over, Pes (rhymes with “yes”) has recreated these iconic games using ordinary household items through the process of stop-motion animationobjects chosen not only for their formal characteristics but also for their interpretive meaning. In displaying Pac-Man, for example, all the characters are created using food items (pizza, eggs, etc.). Pes’s amazing attention to every detail makes this short so special (just look at the flame on the back of the Asteriods spaceship!) . You can view more Pes films online at his website Eat Pes.
Game Over is touring as a closer to the popular Animation Show 3, but you can save yourself $10 (and a long wait) and view it online for free.
