Music video tribute to Dorothy's Magic Bag’s song „Science Fiction Man“.
I have got permission to use this song for the video so don't delete it, Deviant Art Nazis.
This is what the composer of the song said: "Of course you can upload the video you made, whereever you want.
Feel free to use my music in your works in any way you want"

How did you create the parts that look like they're footage of you playing this video game you've (apparently) created to suit the song? The sidescrolling parts--where the camera moves in response to how the character is being played.

haha do you REALLY want to know?
i am not sure if i even want to admit it but oh well i am a bit of a cheater or probably not. normally people fake this in flash and make it look like a video game. i think that never really works out too well and i don't like it too much so instead of faking it i actually coded this game. i only coded the parts you see in the game or well i had the basic engine running and then it is just replacing the backgrounds and removing the jetpack and the sprite and stuff for one scene and adding those for the other scene. so i have made this game and then i got a screen capture program - in my case camtasia (it exists for mac anc PC) and then i just filmed myself playing my own game and then i exported that video i had just capture as GIFs and imported those into flash. so yeh i am a lazy animator. filling up most of the time with something i didnt even animate but code lol.

I am completely freaking thrilled that you actually coded parts of the game. Hell yeah.

you know those stars in the background is just a star pattern i have applied to the mod7 object and then ive exported the single frames out of mmf and imported it into flash. the same goes for that transition effect. its some transition from some transition pack for mmf. also that video game thing at the end is something ive coded in mmf so its a real game and not animated. ive just screen captured it and imported it into flash.

HAHAHA man thank you so much. I just LOVE the song. I was ADDICTED to that song. I was addicted to that song SO badly I just HAD to animate it. I showed it to people and they were like: "stupid" - "this sucks" - "this repeats the whole time"- "boring"

Well it is true- the animations repeat a lot but then I have to say so does the whole song and the animations are supposed to FIT to the song so OF course the animations repeat. What I am trying to say is: I know so many people who hate it so its wonderful to hear somebody enjoys the movie as much as I do. You think it's cool so that makes me happy.

I was also already very happy the creator of the song enjoyed the animation and allowed me to use the song for the animation :) Glad you like it, buddy

haha. i'm glad you like it. most people hate it and find it to be annoying as hell. I won’t even disagree on that one. After I was done with the Comsten video I was really in a “chiptune”-mood and I had listened to Science Fiction Man way too many times. It was just stuck on my mind all the time and I couldn’t get it out of my head- no matter how hard I tried. So the only solution was to animate it. I did this one only on one single weekend. I was pretty surprised how quick some stuff can get finished but then on the other hand the video IS very repetitive which is alright I would say since the song is very repetitive as well and if you stand some parts the movie will get more exciting at the end.
