What do you get when you have two grown men (I’m using the word grown loosely here) who are huge fans of the Mario Kart franchise and have stuntman/filmmaker friends? A stop-motion video of something totally ridiculous but insanely fun, of course. Rustic B is the stuntman/filmmaker from LA who enlisted his friends to create […]
Stop motion films are always a wonder to watch. The sheer effort and creativity needed to even complete a short film is just amazing.
