Superbrothers

If I worked in information technology I would probably be fitting a stereotype a lot better. Alas I don’t, so I have to watch the IT revolution from afar, boo hoo, or I could watch the fantastic film above from 8-bit genius Craig Adams aka superbrothers. His website and flickr set are filled with amazing pixel art that pays homage to the days of Atari 8-bit computers and the Commodore 64. The video above, titled Dot Matrix Revolution, is described below:

Following an early morning status check of their vintage electronic equipment, two computer engineers ‘throw down’ in an awkward dance-off that seems to echo the development of information technolgy and the internet from 1951 up to the present day (!?)

This film, scored by Jim Guthrie, is pretty surreal and the ending sequence manages to be both scary and revelatory. Enjoy!
