One year ago Brandon Laatsch, one half of the FreddieW channel, created this very cool First Person Mario film, effectively repurposing the beloved Mario franchise as a first-person shooter. This project was one of the first large-scale 3D projects Brandon had embarked on in some time, and back then took 60 hours to render.
Fast forward to…uh, today and Brandon has produced a sequel to the popular film entitled First Person Mario: Endgame. The incredible evolution in quality is clearly evident as Brandon has excelled himself and collaborated with other artists to bring this project to fruition. The animation was created using a combination of 3dsMax 2012, After Effects, FumeFX, Vray, Krackatoa, and Premier.
Oh, and render time? 50 days!
