Fore note: I'm not complaining. The prod was quite full of content, very pretty, and engaging. It is quite well done. However I'm going to guess some will say it seemed a little step down from the emotion evoking demo of last year. But, that is OK!

A little bit disappointing, rather unimaginative intro. We have seen all of this already. It's not bad, it looks like small exercise/etude, but yeah...not a blockbuster 64k,sorry.

What an absolutely fantastic soundtrack, carries the cute visuals quite well. Goosebumps for the drumfill section. Well done again, all of you.

Emotional and kinda magic but I agree with Starchaser that last year's was even more emotional and magic. Not the intro I was expecting from Conspiracy this year but for sure your tech and visual style rocks. Special mention to the music, a beauty even in the hardest parts.

Kinda the exact opposite of your last intro, emotion-wise.
Great visuals, nice soundtrack, great buildup, loved it on the bigscreen
Definitely have to rewatch it at home

It's the most matured prod, style and concept wise from the compo. Might not what you expect, might not blow you away, might not win the compo, but it will give you goosebumps and something to think about and remember. Thank you.

Creating such awesome atmosphere and story out of simple geometric forms - only very few demos reach this level of perfection. Very powerful visuals and audio - for me the best production by conspiracy in a while (sorry chaos theory 2 didn't do it for me).

I'm torn here. Somehow I would really like to thumb up this nice intro, but...

I was bored. I kept starring at the particles coming out of the diamond and it just looked wrong (not that I really know how particles coming out of a diamond shaped 3d object is supposed to look like!) But somehow the particles emit from a lot smaller area than the diamond-shape - just seems wrong :)

I think the story is cheesy as hell. Well, at least you succeed in telling it - but I really can't help felling that you choose to go for this theme in order to please the "new" demands for story and direction. And I think it shows, and unfortunately it doesn't make the intro interesting.

So, to sum it up, you succeed in telling a story trough direction, visual and sound. It's just a shame, that the story you choose has been told so many times before, and it's getting really boring :)

Sorry for being an ass. Feel free to spank me.

This is so smooth a baby's butt seems coarse in comparison!

The demo scene logic is quite strong with this one. I see the diamond with particles as a kind of demo force bringing more demo to the scenery so that it can go from wireframe to flat for example.

Those snares sound really like acoustic drums. Are they generated or is it compressed sound?

This is my favourite type of demo - very pretty and graphically impressive, with a very pleasant music!

I absolutely loved the solar eclipse, the fakeout endings, and the actual end scene too!

Though Offscreen Colonies is still my favourite demo of Yours - it was absolutely beautiful and had a line from Tears in rain monologue :)

I like how the little diamond found some friends after a journey that was probably a bit lonely. Whatever it was that made its new friends emerge from that fog came just in time to give it new energy, it seems. I'm curious about what will happen next, now that it is releasing its essence <3

Does a demo 'have' to tell a story? Not necessarily, but if it's as well done as in this demo by Conspiracy then it can be a powerful addition to stunning visuals and music. It was very enjoyable on the bigscreen and goes along nicely with Offscreen Colonies at home :)

Now! this is something totally diferent, a billion parsecs away from the first qulified intro.

The music suits the progression of the visual poetry.
It's imperfect, unclean, and obscure.
Bright and sharp on the climax moments.

TECH-skills vs ART-emotions = WIN & WIN!

Balanced! brilliant!

Although normally a fan of yours, I ended up in the "wasn't impressed" camp this time. Maybe some expectation management on my part is in order, but this intro did exactly nothing for me.

I'm not sure what to think about this prod, I loved it during the compos and I still do, but I feel a bit deceived, imho you should've made it more prominent that this prod heavily borrows from an already existing work of another artist. Apparently you had the space to put your names in the end of the intro, but not to give credits to the original artist. Sure you may had it on the slide(did you? I can't remember) and in the nfo but still, images speak more than a thousand words... if this is watched from a youtube playlist nobody will ever know about TWBTD.

Sure you guys did an ace job with this intro, but I wouldn't have expected any less :)

For now I'll keep my thumb until I've made up my mind about this.

From the yt page :
Quote:
Based on 'THAT WILL BE THE DAY', an audio/visual collaboration between composer Aldo Aréchar (http://aldoarechar.com) and motion graphics artist Matthew DiVito AKA Mr. Div (http://mrdiv.tumblr.com), "Vessel" is a 64 KByte realtime short film by Conspiracy. First presented at the Revision 2017 demoparty, where it reached 2nd place.

Lie LJ, I loved it during the compo but didn't realize it was based on other people's work - I don't think it had been mentioned on the slide or in the intro, so hm.

On the other hand, it looks like it's not a simple remake but more inspired by the original with enough own creative work in it. Still, for a prod heavily relying on concept and atmosphere, I'm not sure yet what to think of all this... I will have to watch both again.
added on the 2017-04-26 11:46:51 by Kylearan Kylearan
I can’t give a thumb down, because, hell, it’s an impressive 64k. But as LJ said, not crediting Aldo Aréchar and Matthew DiVito disappointed me. Almost all scenes are the same – even the opening roses can be found in the original audiovisual clip by Aldo. You had the place to credit both the two guys. Why did you not?

Having hesitated between a thumb down and a piggie, you’ll have the piggie, because it’s still an amazing work for a 64k.

reading infofile doesn't hurt.
Even if it had been an exact replica, it would still be damn impressive to pull it off in 64k. So I really couldn't care less where inspiration came from. The soundtrack is amazing, though some of the instruments does sound a bit "basic" (in lack of better words) - composition is really great, and really suits the visual impressions.
On the visuals, it's a really lovely ride, that captivates me, takes me on a journey and neve ceases to surprise and move me emotionally. Really great work by all of you guys!

and yes, while it's heavily inspired by that video, given that it's clearly mentioned in the .nfo, i see that as a good thing.
obviously this was far more work for you guys - trying to recreate someone's else complex visuals in 64k (and add some of your own scenes that fits nicely).

I love how Conspiracy manage to now and then just release a quiet work of beauty between their heavier, high-concept or energy offerings. This is just a joy to watch and listen to.

On the "controversy": An in-intro acknowledgement would've been nice. We're mature enough for this now.

Recreating those visuals in realtime, in 64k, is already quite impressive. On top of that, this is simply a thing of beauty.

Almost all scenes? Hardly. There's plenty of similarities, I won't deny those. However some of it is just artistic choice such as styling of outlines and simple fills, so is any demo doing that need to cite That Will Be The Day?

Plenty of scene productions cite their influences and recreations in the NFO alone, and yet you only give Conspiracy crap for it? To me, this was excellent and is different enough to stand on its own. The music for both is great, but Conspiracy definitely made their own different tune and provided a better combination of visuals, sync, and entertainment factor as a single package. The "original" is nice, but I don't see the issue.

Omid: That was added after the original YT video got a copyright claim. ;D
This I can see, though, since you can't read an NFO from YouTube. :)

On the thumb: I already gave that pages back. ;)
Beside all that, it seems they worked it out with Mr Aréchar and Mr DiVito, at least according to a comment from Conspiracy (hopefully that goes to the right place; never know, Google changes that around a lot).
Lovely intro and what kb said.

One could probably write an interesting essay on the psychology of perceived similarity of the original and the reinterpretation. I'm saying this because the amount of borrowed art is much less than we had in Offscreen Colonies or even in Darkness, and we didn't keep that a secret in either case.

I'm guessing people recognize the original much more if you borrow the main protagonist/concept, even if you put it into completely different environments. (Only 2-3 scenes have been faithfully (but of course imperfectly) recreated.)

That, or the reason is that the original is also an animation as opposed to still images.

Then again, if I could find the time I could be less inspired by others' stuff and do my own.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Traditionally, artists have learned by copying other artists. And much art gains from building on and referring to earlier works. This is part of the strength of tradition as a thing. T.S. Eliot, in many ways a problematic figure, still had a point when he said (as I said to you at the party) "Immature poets imitate, mature poets steal". (Darkness did what I want to do someday, to capture a sense of a time in history and of emotions many people are feeling at the same time. ) Your craft matters, and you did more than copy. You added something. Also, the music really didn't sound like 64K music, it sounded more real. Kudos for that. This intro communicated an idea successfully. Take some satisfaction from that.
