Fantastic Re-Make of Pixar's Chess Game

I came across this in YouTube today, and was very impressed. It's a re-make of the famous Pixar chess short animation sequence with a real person going through the motions.

Sadly, according to the YouTube clip's information, it was the posters Grandpa who acted in the clip, and shortly thereafter making it he got cancer. But it must have been fun and an amazing thing to work on for both Grandpa and Grandson (or G.Daughter!).

Nice film, but concerning to chess is a big mess. The board is bad oriented, the pieces are on the wrong place. Pitty.

The actual set up of the board is definitely out to lunch, but as for the spirit of the short clip - it's great. The history behind the clip makes it quite unique and special in my opinion.
