Check out the Nintendo 48 Hour Challenge Finalists!
12 people including Andre the Black Nerd, Pro Jared, and Shawn from Underbelly went to LA to become 3 teams that would make videos to be screened at the Sundance Film Festival. The kicker was that there was a specific feature in New Super Mario Bros. U that each team would have to incorporate into their video. They all came up with some pretty cool and creative stuff, but only one could win.
First we have Team Boost made up of Pro Jared, T.J. Smith, D.J. Scott, and Wren Weichman with an epic rap battle against a Sony executive facing off against some of Nintendo's mightiest heroes.
Then Zack Finfrock, Ethan Newberry, Frank Howley, and Josh Jepson came together as Team Challenge to formulate the next great Mario game. Try as they might, things might not turn out as they hoped.
But as there can only be one winner, that honor goes to Team Coin Rush and their attempt to create Mario coins in the real world. Andre the Black Nerd, Shawn from Underbelly, Charley Guzman, Alex Carpenter, and a little extra acting help from JD Witherspoon took home the gold at Sundance, and congrats to those guys.
