The Second Front have been busy on Odyssey these last weeks shooting machinima for their latest piece – Pokemon-A-Go-Go. The video has been released today and we share it with you here:
What happens when the Pokémon turn?
Years of torment and domination have led to an uprising. While humans have been busy playing — Pokémon have been busy training! Awake! It is a new dawn for Pokémon! Downtrodden and abused creatures of the World — UNITE!
I AM POKEMON!
Pikachu – Liz Solo, Purrloin – Bibbe Hansen, Mew – Patrick Lichty, Umbreon – Yunji Kim Yohanning
With: Phreek Fargis, Yael Gilks, Zesstar Zaymed, Hybrid Fusion, Ruri Rio Mihashi and SaveMe Oh.
Special appearances by: Razzbowski and PewDiePie/Beast Master 64
Second Front creates theatres of the absurd that challenge notions of virtual embodiment, online performance and the formation of virtual narrative.
