Mandelbulb 3D Art in Short Film

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 4, 2013, 8:27 AM
Quite some time ago (9-8-2011) I was contacted along with other Mandelbulb 3D artists at Fractal Forums and DeviantArt and was asked for permission to use some of our work in a short, independent Science Fiction film. The production group is called We Were Monkeys and they were putting together the film for the Sitges Film Festival in Spain that October. They said that things went really well for them at the festival but they were making some revisions to the film before posting it online.

A few days ago they contacted those involved with the film and let us know that it is finally now available for viewing. It is titled OVO . It's quite interesting with well done effects. It's made with English sub-titles but spoken in Spanish(?). All of the MB3D artists got a screen credit at the end, so that was cool! Other MB3D artists include Jesse, Lenord, Broken-Ragdoll, Dainbramage, Mario837, Popol4444 and myself. The Mandelbulb art is used somewhat in the far background in long shots but very prominent at the end of the film. So click on the OVO link if you're interested in watching the film!

I'm another one shaking my head and going WOWOMG! Fantastic work....although I'm another one who can't quite wrap my head around the premise of the story... This film can be viewed repeatedly, the detail is just incredible...

Very cool, measured and moody vid Hal, WWM did a great job on this.
The fractal sequences intergrate smoothly and subtly imho. :thumbsup:

Going to go take a look/listen...hey, they even used a 3D model from one of my favorite space ship model creators! It was the white 3D design spinning on the visual display as they zoomed into the guy sharpening the machete! Here is the link to the ship/artist : [link]

and thus far, the film looks pretty well done, posting this now, but will continue watching!

Finished it about 15 minutes after I posted the previous comment. Excellent work done on that video, although I admit I don't quite understand the premise...but it sure looked tight!

Excellent use of FX and fractals, and thanks for the info because I didn't know they finally finished the project. As for the language, no, they do not speak Spanish! :D

Welcome. Yeah, I was guessing in the language, she might have told me and It's lost in a pile of email exchanges. :)

What an Awesome collection of Fractals! Congrat's to all involved! It's small projects like this that will push our art into mainstream productions where the public at large will begin to appreciate the beauty and creativity of what we do on a daily basis!
