Amazing what can be done nowadays with minimal technology and some good simple ideas – Starcadian and Rob O’Neill made this video for $200 with an old aircraft cockpit. It’s also a great song evoking Daft Punk when they were mining those great 1970’s soul and funk albums in the Discovery era – an area I think there is a lot of mileage in still.
They followed it up last month with this Bladerunner/TRON style video for Chinatown, a might more expensive (helicopter shots? Or stock?) but still really impressive for an independent, Bandcamp & iTunes release! Best thing I’ve heard in 2014 so far, so bought!
They’re lucky Data East isn’t around anymore, though – naughty nicking their logo like that 😉 (via Simon Risbridger)
