Contra Rampage

Share Collapse

I can remember the release of Contra in 1987. After pushing the cartridge into the system and turning it on, my mind was immediately blown away by one of the coolest video game title screens of all time. Armed with huge guns and tight abs; two soldiers, Bill and Lance, take on an enemy force known as Red Falcon.

I played the game's gun-and-run marathon time and time again. We were monsters -- unstoppable war machines with precision accuracy, but as time went on I found myself asking, "How would it be on the other end of the gun? Would you run for your life or carry on the fight?"

I would have run screaming the moment I saw a machine gun triple front flip.

Without further ado, I present you with an animation depicting the events of level one from the Red Falcon's point of view. It took some time to make due to what little experience we all had with the animation software, but we finally got it put together. So watch and enjoy. Have to reload it twice because the background was to small. Sorry about that.

I'm interested in a behind the scenes. Is this rotoscoped? because those characters do not sit still for even 1 second.

There are a few spots that are rotoscoped Others parts is just me tryingto keep a character from not falling apart.
All the old videos for this I deleted to clean up space on my old computer so its all lost...
