World’s Fastest Gamer

We worked with McLaren & Mighty Fine Productions to create this 8-bit inspired animation to promote their up-coming World's Fastest Gamer competition.

We were approached by Mighty Fine Productions to create animated promotional content for McLaren’s World’s Fastest Gamer contest. The contest pits the best gamers against each other, all competing for a chance to win the coveted position of a McLaren test driver.

Our approach to the piece was to use a retro gaming style for the illustration.
The script and story featured various references to games such as Outrun, Mario, Street Fighter and many more.
We kept the animation simple, in-line with the retro styling and cut in some old-school arcade music and sound.
