Production Duo Celebrates ‘Gran Turismo’ 15th Anniversary by Honoring its Creator

Producers Tamir Moscovici and Paul Proulx, the creative production team behind Urban Outlaw and Painting Coconuts , decided to mark the 15th anniversary of Sony’s landmark Gran Turismo series (and recent release of Gran Turismo 6) with a documentary profiling “the single-minded genius behind Gran Turismo’s birth and breathtaking 15-year evolution,” Kazunori Yamauchi.

KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide is a one hour, 24 minute documentary examining the drive and devotion Yamauichi has put into Gran Turismo from its birth through its incredible evolution over the past 15 years. Since the first Gran Turismo game in 1997, the game Yamauchi had wanted to make since he was fifteen years old, he has always gone above and beyond expectations in creating the best games possible. Yamauchi has been one of the most important and interesting figures in gaming over the past 15 years, with a singular devotion to giving gamers the ultimate driving experience. His insane devotion to detail in his racing simulation series can be traced to his love for racing and all things automotive — he really races himself, and often wins. This offers him a unique understanding of what racing is all about, something he brings into each of his games.

If you’re a gamer, and especially if you’re a fan of the Gran Turismo series, it’s a really intriguing — and sometimes nostalgic — look at one of Sony’s most iconic gaming series and the incredible man behind them. Check out the trailer above, and, if you’re interested, head on over to Hulu for the complete documentary. Credits after the jump. Read more

Blammo Worldwide is Here to Ruin Christmas

Earlier this month, Fox Chicago news anchor Robin Robinson made headlines for famously telling the children of the Windy City that “Santa is not real.” Needless to say, people were PISSED, and Ms. Robinson is now public enemy number 1 around these parts.

Luckily, the folks at Toronto-based Blammo Worldwide don’t have their own news station. As the Sears guy would say, Blammo is raining some “cold hard facts up in here.” No, children, your mom isn’t cheating on your father with a philanthropist demigod, and reindeer only fly when you’re tripping on ‘shrooms. So, happy holidays from Blammo we guess, and we’ll see if this results in children worldwide turning to hallucinogens in order to keep the miracle of Christmas alive. Credits after the jump.
