8bit Film

Video games and film

Hopefully ‘Pixels’ is as good as its movie posters

So ‘Pixels’ has been around for quite awhile – if you’re a long time reader you probably caught the original short by Patrick Jean here on 8-bit along with the news that the Happy Madison crew would be handling the full feature. I feel like there’s even been a teaser trailer…

The Dark Knight In An 8 Bit World

CineFix is at it again (and I’m late to the game, again) this time telling the intricate tale of the Dark Knight via 8 bit awesomeness. It really gets to the point in this 3 min telling – covering all the major scenes with such ease. OK. Enough talk –…

Blade Runner In All Its 8-bit Glory

I’m on a roll today. I always enjoy these 8-bit remakes as you can probably tell by my last 3 posts. This time CineFix has coated Blade Runner with a nice 8-bit shine. I must say this 8-bit version is making me want to bust out the directors cut. But…

Mario Comes Alive Via Post-It Notes

Real World Mario in SXSW Short Film

This is a pretty great real world version of Super Mario Bros. Created by Joe Nicolosi – this is just one of few shorts he has that will show up at SXSW. It’s a dark retelling (in a funny vein of course) of Mario’s pursuit of that bitch Peach. Enjoy….
