I was quite interested to seeing 'Beyond The Mind's Eye' strictly to see if the computer animation would hold up. I mean, this was released in 1993 (causing a bit of a fuss if I remember), and of course, computer animation has grown in tremendous leaps and bounds since then. After watching this, I have to say I enjoyed it, the whole thing followed a curious pattern (It seems that 75% of the time we were either following something or going for a ride). About the animation itself, it seemed to flow quite smoothly, with some slow motion happening. Not too sure if this was done intentionally or if this was too much for the computer to handle. The whole thing actually plays out like an extended demo reel, with scenes usually not lasting more then a minute then going to the next "look what else we can do!" moment. I have no idea how influential this was, but I am sure I've seen some of these ideas used since.. Like the running cat? The kissing couple that twist and turn into one abstract being? The instrument players? Someone help me.
