French director and artist Benamin Bardou has been heavily promoting his latest short on fb and twitter, and he should be proud of his success. Published early January “Do Computers Dream of Electronic Sheep ?” is Benjamin’s first work of the year, and has quickly become one of the best examples of the elasticity and customization contemporary game art is capable of.
Under his “Data Films” prod. name and with music from Steve Moore’s Logos from “The Way In” LP, Benjamin (who happens to be an expert in reality modding and matte painting for big prod houses) uses GTA IV and his amazing cinematic capabilities to create a great homage to Ridley Scott’s punk world.
If he’s capable of doing this with just After Effects and some blur plugins imagine what he could do with the new SIM City…. More of his works on his website.
