The 8-Bit Music Video For Moby’s “Wait For Me”

Back in March of this year, electronica star Moby asked his fans to create a music video for his single “Wait for Me”. He offered up USD 5,000 for the best video and USD 1,000 for the two runners-up.

Moby was quite surprised at the response, he thought 30 to 40 entries would be the max, but almost 500 videos were submitted! People voted for their favourite videos on and when it was narrowed down to six finalists, Moby picked the eventual winner.

The winning entry was directed by Nimrod Shapira, but the one we’re going to show you today is by one of the runner-ups, Maik Hempel. Games are supposed to be fun, so Hempel thought of creating a 2D-scrolling arcade game video to try offset the melancholic tone of the song. It’s a great effort, but still bit of a tear-jerker. Have a look at his 8-bit music video to “Wait For Me”.

See the winning entry by Shapira after the jump.

Far Out! Iron Man 2 Fan-Made Posters

The standard Iron Man 2 posters were OK (here’s one, two), but I’d hardly get an iron boner when I think about them. Was that crude? I apologize.

A couple of fan-made posters that have recently come to light are far more turbo-charged than the official ones. Have a look at them after the jump.

Star Wars Uncut: The Fan-Made Trailer

Thanks to Casey Pugh, you’ll soon see Star Wars: A New Hope in a completely different light. Pugh’s project Star Wars Uncut aims to recreate the iconic film by chopping it up into into 15-second scenes and asking fans from around the world to remake those scenes. At the end of the project, Pugh will stitch the scenes back together and make the geektastic film available for viewing.

The force is certainly strong with the fan, so much so that the trailer for Star Wars Uncut has just been released. Have a look at it after the jump.
