Moleman 2 - The Art of the Algorithms [demoscene documentary]

category: general [glöplog]
You might have seen this at Function, or heard of it afterwards, here it is now with English subtitles:


Now, on this note, we're looking for people who are willing to organize screenings outside Hungary as well (the movie will be fully subtitled and re-dubbed in English as well, although perhaps not for the premiere), so if you think you can bring together a roomful of people for a screening, let us know!

Very cool, thanks for the links and also for the subtitles, this is all good material to inspire me while i write my uni thesis on the demoscene :)

production value seems to be rather high, but having only seen the trailer, it appears the movie might be a tad too hungary-centric to work for more general audiences in other countries

which might in fact be the reason they're advertising for international sceners ;)

havoc: the trailer was aimed at a Hungarian audience and we sorta asked them to shoehorn the subtitles in later; the movie itself (afaik) takes place both at Function and MAIN, and the interviewees include a variety of nationalities, though for obvious reasons, the majority are Hungarian. the movie's also aimed for the U.S. indie film festival circuit so I don't suppose this will be a problem :)

g: In a few days' time there's a (d)emoscenocentric meeting going to take place in Warsaw, which is to be organised by Voyager. I do understand it's prolly way much too early for you to be able to provide him with an avi/mkv, but if you don't mind having a screening every so often in Poland, he's the best guy to ask. If I ever hear of anyone organising a meet-the-demoscene event in Poland, I'll touch base with you.

Oh, and it's awesome such productions pop up every now and then :-) Thanks for the hard work!

Gargaj: I'd be happy to organize a showing at Skeneklubi for all interested people.

I can probably fix a local showing for a room ful of people in Uppsala Sweden. Would need the the actual movie though :) Would probably be at my personal cineplex here at home. But I could ask around at different clubs and such.
