It’s been almost three years in the making, but today it is finally completed. The live action animated video based on the Street Fighter II video game where Amanda and I fight each other in central Stockholm. In the original plan, I was to battle one of the guys from the game, which is the reason for me winning this round ;)
The background image is of Sergels torg in central Stockholm but the images of us were taken at the campus in Karlskrona last year. After screenshooting every movement that the original characters Ryu and Guile makes, we set out to copy those poses in photographic stills. All together there are 122 different poses.
This is not the first video that I’ve done based on the Street Fighter series. In 2012, I made a cartoon animated version where the presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney faced off, in the roles of Dhalsim and M. Bison.
I hope you enjoyed it, especially if you’re a video game nerd like me.
