8-bit The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou


This is o-fish-ally one of our favourite 8-bit film versions so far.

Well, to be more precise, this one is predominantly 16-bit, but we'll let the Dutton Brothers of Cinefix get away with that, as they've created yet another splendid lo-fi version of a classic film: this time it's Wes Anderson's 2004 movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

The whole story is told in the style of a retro video game, complete with fantastic MIDI versions of the famous soundtrack, including the epic Sigur Rós closer Starálfur.

Watch and enjoy below.
