Yesterday we brought you the trailer for Second Skin, a new documentary premiering at the South by Southwest Film Festival in early March. To continue our pre-coverage of that festival, above you'll find the trailer for Reformat the Planet -- yet another documentary premiering at SXSW that, like Second Skin, deals somewhat in the world of video games. This one, however, is a tad different, as it follows several people who use their old Nintendo systems to create some pretty amazing music. How do they do it? I'm not entirely sure, but I do know that they use the actual music from, say, the Nintendo Game Boy, and transform it into these epic tracks.
It's definitely very cool, and I'm real interested in the film itself, yet I couldn't help but laugh watching these guys absolutely rock out while jamming on the buttons of a Game Boy. It's just comical, I don't know -- I mean these guys get REALLY into it. And their audience -- all sweaty and whatnot -- get REALLY into it. It's pretty awesome, I guess, and it just blows my mind to stumble upon these little worlds of art you never knew existed. Anyway, check out the trailer above and let us know what you think.
