Made by Lasse Gjertsen in 2009.

My first professional short. Produced by Alligator in Bergen, Norway.

It is basically my first attempt of videographic shamanism :) It is a story about a persons life and death told in 8-bits video game graphics.

I made it in about half a year together with my friend Trygve Knudsen, who made the 3D-sequences. I made all the 8-bit-shit :) We worked on and off with it from February 2008 and completed it in January 2009. It has been screened at a bunch of film festivals all over the planet, and is originally made for 35mm film with surround sound (kicks in during the 3D-sequences). Therefore it might be perceived as being a bit sloooow, but fuck you and your internet attention span in that case :p

The 8-bit stuff is designed in Photoshop and animated with After Effects. I downloaded emulators for Amiga, Sega, Nintendo and so forth and had to play a crap load of games to look at the graphics and game play for inspiration. It was pretty sweet to get paid for that :) The music is composed with FL Studio.

There are a lot of references to people and movies, and not to mention; video games, that have contributed inspiration wise, and if you turn on annotations, you'll get it all revealed :)

You can download a shortened version of the soundtrack from http://www.nrk.no/Urort/Artist/lassegg (Lytt til = Listen to, Last ned = Download)

Enjoy!
