If you need a new spare-time project, and also happen to have a lot of spare time on your hands, maybe you could recreate one of your favourite old-school games in stop-motion That's exactly what Connor Wilson did for his computer class in high school.
He put together his own Mario level – made entirely out of paper – using iStopMotion, a piece of software that makes it easier to create and edit stop-motion video. Think of all those different objects that would need drawing and cutting! He finished the project off using iMovie and Ableton Live.
You have to love the level of detail he used here: even at the end of the level, Connor makes sure Mario completely misses the key jump to reach the top of the flagpole. Connor also seems to be doing a quite a dash through the level.
