Insert Coin

“Insert Coin” a stop-motion animation by Ninja Moped. I could have sworn this was fake but they reveal their process at the end!

  • i personally like animations to have more imperfections, more of a human touch to them but i applaud the effort here

  • Niko

    Heck yeah, I would have liked to see an alternate angle, just something for a split second that showed you, “oh dang, those are quarters yeah!”

  • Magda

    It’s awesome to see some video game related art featured! The music is fantastic and greatly sets the tone. I would agree though that it would have been better if you didn’t have to watch the behind the scenes to realize it was all real. Also, I wish the game connections would have been better elaborated on. Why do I need a gun to shoot Pac-man ghosts…

    Oh and the beginning of the stop motion was great because it reminded me of gameplay from the Virtual boy!

  • Sick.

  • Appreciated effort, but visually.. I don’t know, It’s like going back to PS when we now have PS3!

  • owen
  • hooray for old video games!
    right now we’re working on an introduction animation for a comedy show about old video games, you can see a preview here http://www.birdbee.be/archives/1217

  • this is fake, computer generated I think.

    • if you’d watch till the end you’d see that its not

  • Rymdreglage have made it again. o.o

  • Dandanyeahman

    THIS IS TOO COOOL!
    projectors open limitless possibilities i want want so bad

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
