The Matrix Reloaded

We've seen movies like Kill Bill and Blade Runner turned into 8-bit video games, but YouTube user and San Francisco State University student Phillip Raupach has decided to do something different inspired by old school video games. Instead of taking The Matrix Reloaded and turning it into an 8-bit video game, he merely took footage from the film, a fight scene with Neo and thugs in the house of the Merovingian, and replaced all of the music and sounds with those you would find in these early video games. The result is funny and impressive, as his work won him Best Sound Design at SFSU's BECAfest last year. Watch below!

Here's Phillip Raupach's 8-bit version of The Matrix Reloaded (via Movies.com):

For those who don't know, BECAfest 2014 is the annual showcase of student work produced in Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts. It's pretty clear why this won Best Sound Design as the sound effects are applied perfectly to the images on film. Video gamers should easily be able to spot sounds and music from games like Contra and a variety of Super Mario Bros. titles, but there's plenty of other unique sounds coming from other games as well. This makes me want to go and edit a bunch of other action scenes with completely different music and special effects. It could actually be a good exercise in editing. Cool?
