Everybody has, at one point, imagined what it would be like to have superpowers. This remarkable video, Superman with a GoPro, taps into that daydream and brings it to boisterous, joyous life.
Nearly all the action is from the first person view of Superman himself. Supes spends the whole day saving citizens on his daily patrol. The pure joy of being Superman is accessible to the viewer, and it’s the ultimate Mary Sue – even to the point of making segment director Sam Gorski a character in the story.
The video is the work of the Corridor Digital Team, and its directors Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer and their producer Jake Watson. The song in the background, by the way, is Hero by Pegboard Nerds, featuring Elizaverta.
Corridor Digital uses Patreon to raise funds for further projects – they were founded more than ten years ago, working in a loft space in Los Angeles. They are in the unusual niche of making fascinating short subjects that demonstrate the art of visual effects, available to subscribers at their web site. They’ve actually built their own entire streaming service – as FX companies go, this makes them something of a unicorn, and it’s a remarkable business model.
Watch and enjoy.
