VIDEO: 8-bit Cinema: Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke

Princess Monoke

We most recognise the technology of 8-bit through those addictive Nintendo and Sega video games from the late ’80s. If you want an in-depth lesson in 8-bit, Red Bull did an extensive docu-series about the makers of said games and the history of it. If you were still so captured by the 8-bit realm, you should find the shorts from 8-bit Cinema courtesy of the CineFX channel to be exciting. Here, one of the frequent contributing directors David Dutton shares his pixelated visualisations of Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. It manages to condense the films into four minutes without losing too much of the original storyline.
