Playstation Classic: Big Bang
Playstation Classic: Big Bang
Buck Design
To create this anthemic launch film for the new Playstation Classic, we hopped in a time machine with our friends over at BBH and set the dial to 1994. The goal: recreate an authentic Playstation 1 world in all its low-fi glory... but updated for 2018. And with more dino scissor taketowns.

We had a blast unlearning all the fancy 3D tricks we've picked up over the ensuing 24 years (plus adding a few new ones to the toolkit) to see just how much nostalgia we could fit inside 32-bits.  – Description via Buck
My main focus on this project was the design and animation of the early gaming evolution scene. The initial explosion of pixels represents the early days of gaming where images were rendered using large pixels with a select number of colors. This pixel art evolved over the years as technology advanced producing more advanced color palettes and complex animations.
