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...

Yes, the concept is way out there, but pretty well done...

The fractal sequences intergrate smoothly and subtly imho. :thumbsup:
