Live-Action Mario Galaxy Is Mind-Blowing (And Vertigo-Inducing)

Samsung’s Gear 360 cameras are by most accounts, great at taking 360-degree videos that capture every angle of the action. The team at Corridor Digital, however, found that they could take their Gear 360 videos to the next level by altering the footage to create the illusion that everything was happening on a tiny sphere. What ensued was, as Corridor puts it, “the next logical step,” creating a real-life Super Mario Galaxy video complete with blocks, invincibility stars, turtle shells, and, of course, the Mario Brothers.

Super Mario Galaxy allows Mario to travel through the cosmos landing on small planets to collect items and combat various dangers. Corridor Digital’s video replicates this as faithfully as possible, showing Mario, Wario, and Luigi hop from planet to planet, all the while vying for dominance. After dispensing of Wario and working out their differences, Mario and Luigi attempt to save Princess Peach, who proceeds to sucker punch the duo, trapping them in the cage she had formerly been held in.

It’s dizzying to watch at first, but certainly a clever bit of video editing. The making of the clip was apparently a difficult process that took a Herculean effort on behalf of Wren and the Corridor production team, as seen in the behind the scenes “making of” footage.
