SXSW 2015 Gaming Awards - Opening Sequence

Loved this animation from Imaginary Forces, to kick off the SXSW 2015 Gaming Awards. It's made especially great, not least for the gorgeous execution of image and sound, but because you can feel the way the creators fully understand and love the subject they are making this film about.

You are so entranced and excited to see the visual nods and hear all the games you've played through your life, you instantly know 'they get me', you know that what's going to come next will be super relevant to you as they've just created something that speaks to you in such an authentic and relevant way. Sounds so simple doesn't it, but you can count on one hand the amount of times something speaks to you like that in a week/month/year.

I also like how it had some visual similarities to the title sequence of Halt & Catch Fire, (which is a brilliant show, if you haven't seen it yet.)

So good.
