The buzz from the streets of this years SXSW has been about director Joe Nicolosi and his five film bumpers, the standout being a real world portrayal of Super Mario. The interest even led to a meme forming in the streets as Film School Rejects reports the commonly heard phrase being “Did you hear about the Mario bumper?”.
Nicolosi writes “They’re the result of a lot of time and hard work, but the entire process from pitching to the film festival to making the visual effects was fun and rewarding”
You can view four of them below, unfortunately the fifth one is not ready to be shown on youtube. If you wish to see more of Nicolosi’s work then you can visit his website fishrockit.com
