Man. I never thought I’d see pixel art get that dirty. I need to clean my eyes with a perfectly square kleenex. The director (and animator?) Jeremie Perin did an excellent job with everything but the content. The pacing and framing in this 8-bit styled masterpiece are actually very non-8-bit. I’ve seen plenty of video game style animation before but most were staged entirely on top of your typical 2D side-scrolling background and looked like the intro chic-punching sequence to Double Dragon. Unexciting basically. This piece is far from boring. Unfortunately I just can’t directly link to this piece. It starts okay but goes beyond not-safe-for-work. I’ll link to things on this blog that are somewhat risque if they are artistically sound. And I was ready to give this animation that same hall-pass, until I watched the last minute where it just goes over the top. If you have a hard time counting how many times something goes out OR in a butthole, there’s a good chance you’ll be losing some of your audience. And I don’t know how you submit your demo reel to a company like Pixar with- well, you can see if you want. I’ll still pop up some screengrabs because it is very well done and if you wanna dirty up your morning find “Flairs – Truckers Delight” on your favorite search engine.
