A trip through the history of video games

History of Gaming from Florian Smolka on Vimeo.

 

This is a university video-project made by "Game Design"-students from munich.

Done in a single-shot fashion...well almost single shot =)
The film covers different eras of the video-game history.

Took us a week to organise the various props (controllers, monitors. lighting, camera, etc.), two whole days to film and several days of postproduction.
It isn't perfect, but hopefully fun to watch nevertheless ,)
