I first found out about artist Guillaume Reymond and the Game Over project through Geekologie.com and their post of the stop-motion Pac Man made with people. These videos are amazing and fun to watch as hundreds of people come together to make stop-motion animation of some classic video games where even the music is improvised. The site also has several other videos including recreations of Space Invaders, Pong, Tetris, and Pole Position. In their own word:

GAME OVER is one of the art projects developed by the French-Swiss artist Guillaume REYMOND (NOTsoNOISY creative agency). It consists of a series of collaborative animation movies which revive some of the very first video games. The pixels are replaced by a group of real human-beings that are moving from seat to seat in a theatre during about 4 to 6 hours. Each “pixel” has its own rules and decides what s/he wants to do for each picture. Once all these pictures are turned into a short animation movie, a giant human-scale video game unfolds “live”.
