Stop Motion Post-it Arcade Animation: Sticky Pixels

by Conner Flynn

Okay arcade fans, prepare to have your mind blown. This stop-motion animation made from Post-It notes looks like real arcade game footage. It is completely amazing and has me nerding out. All of your favorites are represented. Well, not all, but several classic games are well represented.

It features Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Mega Man, Zelda and more. What you’re about to watch is 5,722 individual still frame images lovingly converted into an animation.

This feat was accomplished by Michael Birkin, who has a lot of free time and an amazing talent.¬†Michael says it took him all of his weekends and holidays for the last 11 months to complete using 4800 Post-its and traditional stop-motion techniques. And while it’s possible it could have been computer animated (due to the barely-changing shadows and reflections), it’s still¬†the coolest thing you will see all day.

And if Michael isn’t an awesome stop-motion animator, he’s an awesome computer animator. Either way, it’s a win.

    As wonderful as this is when done properly, this is faked. It’s a good fake but a fake none-the-less.
