Michael Birken has serious passion for Ms. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. He spent weekends and nights for the past 11 months creating a stop motion animation tribute to his favorite game out of Post-It Notes. He doesn’t mention how many paper cuts he managed to give himself, but it had to be a few. Birken says:
The recordings were printed out, one frame at a time, and transferred by hand to various walls around my office floor using thousands of Post-It Notes. The process consumed weekends and holidays for the past 11 months. Changing background scenery was masked out and replaced with 1 consistent frame throughout the animation, producing an eerie stillness amid the moving images on the walls.
It’s crazy impressive.
