The Pixelated History of Computing

The Pixelated History of Computing

Check out this slow but funny movie by Canadian animators SUPERBROTHERS and Jim Guthrie. From the SUPERBROTHERS site:

SUPERBROTHERS is super pleased to announce the world premiere of the DOT MATRIX REVOLUTION, the second pixel film by SUPERBROTHERS, featuring a musical composition by legendary indie songsmith Jim Guthrie, with additional sounds courtesy of Arthur Zaragoza. Plug in your headphones, turn up the volume, close the door and turn off the lights… and be sure to hit the full-screen button to experience this award-winning film the way it was intended.

BOW BEFORE THE ALMIGHTY CLOUD. This pixel film, begun in 2006 and completed in 2008, is a goofy, retro look at the world of computers and technology. Stills from this film were featured in American Illustration 25.

If you haven’t looked at the History of Computing before you might want to read this Wikipedia article first.
