Tonight Live
Tobias Bernstrup

In the video Tonight Live (2000) Tobias Bernstrup uses the Machinima technique (machine + cinema) – a style of animation that uses the graphic engine of video games to create videos and films. By modifying the contents of an existing game Tobias creates his own video game universe where we enter the dance floor on a virtual Fetish Club where the characters are dancing to Tobias Bernstrup’s song “27” while his avatar is standing on a stage observing them.”
