Storyline

The Mind's Eye is a compilation of experimental computer animations from when such technology was in its early infancy. The animations are from various studios, having been arranged in a sort of "2001" evolution-timeline theme, and set to synthesized music. These pioneering CGI projects later gave rise to films such as Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Antz, and Shrek. Written by Tyler Norman

It still fascinates me.
2 March 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although by now this looks very blocky by today's CGI standards (I can do better stuff on KPT Bryce), I am still captivated by this priceless compilation of CGI experiments, and the way the artists did what they did with the then-limited rendering technologies they had at their disposal. True, alot of this is done in an abstract or cubist fashion, but this to me only adds to the intrigue. Many of these images are so amazing, even in their relative simplicity, that they stick with you for a long time. Take 40 minutes of your evening to enjoy this mesmerizing feast of eye candy.
