Retro game Post-It stop-motion animation is rad

We've seen Post-It Note stop-motion animation before, but none quite so clean as the above video that reportedly took eleven months and 4,800 Post-Its to make. The stillness of the shots and the transitions between different backgrounds are impressive, adding an eerie quality to the video, according to creator Michael Berkin.

One of the more interesting aspects of the video is that both the Ms. Pac-Man portion and the Donkey Kong portion follow actual playthroughs of one level. In Ms. Pac-Man, though we only see a small window at any given time, the status of the pellets is tracked throughout, with each accounted for by the end of the segment.
