Super Mario Bros Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

1 min read


You’ve all seen Super Mario Bros before, but have you ever seen the entire game being played out on a curb in the real world? No? Well then you really have to check this out.

The entire video was created to go alongside a thesis about the magic that goes behind making CG animations track properly in real scenes. The creator, Andreas Heikaus has this to say in his video description:

“This video was part of my Bachelor thesis at the University of Applied science and art Hannover. The Super Mario Bros. game, released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, is not longer bound to the television size and get interactive with a new environment. The emphasis of my thesis is on the matchmoving work. It is the process of matching CG elements into live-action footage.”
