Hi.

I recently completed an 8bit animated music video for Goldfish ( http://www.goldfishlive.com )

A few Way of the Pixel members worked on it. I included Way of the Pixel forums in the credits.

Thank you for these forums. The portfolio section was super useful to find willing pixel artists and animators.

Looks like you got a lotta views on Youtube, congrats!

I like how you combined elements from retro gaming for a nostalgia effect. You've manipulated pixel media in a way that's unique to pixel art and I'm pretty surprised that it turned out so well. Is it really 8-bit?

Hooooly shit man! I cannot believe I missed the opportunity to work with ya  :'( I LOVE all the videos you've done for goldfish, Get Busy Living most of all ,I  even watched most of the HappyLand shorts....would love to see that kind of stuff between shows in TV. I'm pretty sure I've posted in your YT channel as conceitarturo :p

The video came out awesome, I was very impressed with the intro, the voxel stuff, the shift of perspective with the tank, the stopmotion ending, the jazzist whose head blows up, the square city stuff the sonic part...and I fucking loved the kitty Tintin

I'mma get a portfolio together and send it to ya =/

really nice production. Not only is the video really sweet, but i actually really enjoy the song! i could put that on my play list or something.

All the elements were certainly very well put together, lots of good humor and some funny easter egg video game jokes/references in there (yay "orange" box! heh). It actually got better as it went along, i really loved the bionic sonic zoom scene (going past the moon golfers, lmao!) and then how it trounces the cop cars in pure disco fashion. That has WIN written all over it :D

I also enjoyed the pixel textured 3d elements as well, it mixed it up for me and i wasnt expecting it, but it jives very well in the video imo. Who doesnt love a bit of claymation thrown in at the very end too?

Im going to go watch it again, heh.

Looks like there were a good size of credits in this piece, lots of artists helping out on this production!

I've listened this like crazy last year. Official video song is much better than album version cause it's a bit faster. Fort Knox is great song and video adds to those good vibes. Great job. :D
