Obsessiveness is a trait common to animators and gamers alike. Those frogs need to cross that busy freeway, and we are not about to let them down. Video game nostalgia is the aesthetic model for this collection of films. These animations riff on different game tropes, from the distinctive sound of nabbing a coin in the air to recreating a Let’s Play style youtube walkthrough. The films construct different kinds of game environments and the illusion of agency in a virtual world.
