The Stop-Motion Post-It Note Tribute to Ms. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong That Took 96 Days To Make

This stop motion tribute to creator’s Michael Birken·2 favorite old school arcade games is based on actual recorded game footage. The recordings were printed out, one frame at a time, and transferred by hand to various walls around my office floor using thousands of Post-It Notes. The process consumed weekends and holidays for the past 11 months. Changing background scenery was masked out and replaced with 1 consistent frame throughout the animation, producing an eerie stillness amid the moving images on the walls.
