Mostly done in the last week and a half or so before the party...music isn't mastered well but I still like how the prod turned out.

Also something for Trace at the end there ;)

Effects are okay, but it lacks color, contrast and design. Music needs some cleanup and mastering. That being said - Ferris you are extremely talented and skilled for your age (This guy is 16 or something). Keep doing demos! I'm really looking forward to see your next releases :)

the noisy filter was unnecessary imho but the effects are really enjoyable, specially the tractionish rainy end scene :)

This pulls of the dark, moody style exceptionally well. I liked the colour scheme. It was gloomy without being monochrome (like many demos of this style).

One negative point, I thought the music ended up a bit too fast and in your face and didn't reflect the mood so well.

and great trax.

efxwise it was quite good.

I thought the music was the worst part of the prod. Liked the effects, though I think some more color in places would have been a visual improvement. I agree that there is a severe lack of contrast in the demo. Anyway, nice prod...I look forward to more!

Ferris did a good coding job here, but the demo as a whole didn't really manage to keep my interest.

Nice work! I really dig your overlays :)

what Gargaj said. Keep make demos, Jake! I can't imagine what you'll make when you'll be 20, you're fucking talented!

aside from the music, a good, coherent, dark demo.

Sorry about the terrible mixing/mastering job...this was my first tune where I actually attempted any of that and I learned a valuable lesson: NEVER MASTER MUSIC WITHOUT A SUBWOOFER OR SPEAKERS WITHOUT PROPER BASS OUTPUT. (That's why the bass was so high)
added on the 2008-08-30 05:18:42 by ferris ferris
for the soundtrack. visuals and design would deserve a piggy.

Nice demo. The music is a mess, though.

not my cup of tea, bad music, overrated.

it's missing the "wow" feeling for me.
nice music and sync

This was pretty good.

Yes, overall nice package, although the ball construction is quite glowy. But who I am to say... .)

Crashed horribly no matter what option I chose, P4 3.0ghz, 2gb ram, ATI X1650.

Shame I was looking forward to watching this one. Screen shots look good.

ok demo. music was ok until the first lead came in. the intropart was pretty cool.

fx were nice. maybe those wines could grow a little more wild. not all at the same rate or something. :)

please do some gamma-correction
it looks like it is already projected on the lighted wall
"color=pow(color,2.0);" ;)

anyway, not bad!

great effort! the visuals exhibited a great sense of motion that a lot of demos don't get right in my opinion. the music enhanced the intensity but had some problems. the drum sounds seem out of place with the rest of the audio, and the track seems excessively dramatic to me. some subtlety with the music could have made this stand out more.
