Extremely relaxing. The mix of video footage and rendered graphics works really well and the music fits perfectly.

And while I'm at it, it should've easily won instead of that utter TAAT crap.

realplayer/windowsmedia player both crash when i try to open this ... ??
added on the 2001-08-05 21:24:36 by robotriot robotriot
alright, a reboot solved the problem.
what i don't like here is that the camerarecordings seem a bit unprofessional
added on the 2001-08-05 21:35:57 by robotriot robotriot
what do ya expect? it is after all an _unprofessional_ production.. but i think it's ace.. very well done.

Just beautiful work by saffron on lackluster's beautiful 13/10/99 track.. fluid, organic visuals.

It definitely would have deserved the first place instead of some stupid home video crap. The visual part fits great to the ambient tune. Distance's music rules.

Needs some polish, but not bad for overall effect. The demo-ish parts look choppy and stuttering on my machine, but maybe it's the video card I have.

Hi folks,
the 56 megs mpeg from the compo is not very handy to download, so I'm putting up different formats here:


divx coming soon!

i wonder..
is EVERYTHING made without computers? if so it rocks.. otherwise its not so cool ;p
(waiting for answer;)

ps. lator, stop saying so stupid things!

yeah, this one was cool too.(the other one was the nokia communicator-demo)
rulezadded on the 2001-08-14 20:51:05 by Random- Random-
a good surprise this prod!
well done Saffron! lots of effects, with real life items mixed with computerized effects
and your touch of painting, a very good relaxing prod

my time to be stupid:
this could be the best demo ever. but damn, it's just an animation:)
rulezadded on the 2001-10-03 18:33:16 by 216 216
yeah, beautiful like sunflower is. the videomixing is really nice, and so is the music (at least with the visuals). the only disapointment is the end of the demo - these flowers somehow doesn't fit there...
anyway - NOBLE!

I like this alot. The music and style is very good, and just as raver I thought that the flowers at the end didn't fit, but after I watched it many times, the flowers just make me happy.

Definitely the best wild demo from asm01. Very good looking visuals and my favourite track by Lackluster.

I'm surprised I didn't comment on this earlier. I liked it :) I haven't watched it in while.. I agree with raver and lai.. the flower part kind of drifted away in a not good way, but was still nice and added to the demo.
rulezadded on the 2002-01-22 04:51:38 by bigcheese bigcheese
simply great.. maybe a bit more cg and cut some of the flowers in the end :)

rulezadded on the 2002-02-26 16:33:38 by cats cats
Nice visuals (and music too, I suppose).. but tell me, is there supposed to be green stuff at the bottom or do I have a bad DivX codec?
rulezadded on the 2002-03-08 01:26:06 by phoenix phoenix
phoenix, hmm no green stuff here (with divx 4.x).

and yes. this is beautiful.
rulezadded on the 2002-03-08 02:53:18 by melw melw
Guess I had 4.0 alpha 48 (thought I had 3.x actually), but I just grabbed 5.0 (h0h0) and the green stuff is gone. It did look kinda cool tho, I thought it was part of the video before I took a closer look at the pouet screenshot!
added on the 2002-03-08 04:11:37 by phoenix phoenix
I just installed divx 5 on my new(ish) machine and now the video has purple blocks popping up in all the keyframes - the overall effect looks sort of like a 1994 chaos zoomer. It's quite interesting but not exactly what I had in mind...

Is divx a stupid hack or is that just my prejudice? =) Anyway, it may take a while til I get around to making another attempt at divx - the video was made on a Mac (eek) so encoding divx is a bit convoluted.

this is beautiful
rulezadded on the 2002-03-21 12:18:30 by rydi rydi
saffron, divx 3.11a is a hack of microsofts mpeg4 codec, whilst divx 4+ is totally rewritten hence legal..

4+ is backwardcompatible, but not 100% it would seem :)

oh and yeah, this wildcontrib is nice
rulezadded on the 2002-05-19 04:31:25 by jelly jelly

Sweet Jesus, this is an awesome prod. Staggeringly beautiful visuals, well realised ideas, execution-confounding sequences, subtlety... and a superb ambient soundtrack as well. Almost worth selling a kidney on ebay to pay for cost of the download time.

This prod is really beautiful. Such sense for colors and especially for music is amazing.. Combination of video and generated content is unbeliveable. I can imagine this being a part of top of the prods.

This is true art.
