Storyline

In the 1980's, something changed the world forever. Computer technology, mostly due to the appearance of affordable Commodore 64's, entered households worldwide, providing the opportunity for everyone to create digital art. But existing art forms weren't the only ones to be re-implemented on these computers; brand new forms of art also appeared, ones thought to be impossible up to that point. Computers provided an opportunity for the creator to produce visuals and sound effects and combine them to create the ultimate audiovisual experience, by using only the language of mathematics and writing program code, without physical interaction. As a result of such techniques, demos were born, and with them, the demoscene subculture. A demo can best be understood as a spectacular animated music video which is usually a few minutes long. And yet it's something entirely different from a traditional video. Computer technics is the fastest developing part of our world, which produces more and more... Written by Matusik, Szilárd

Trivia

In the film, Slyspy notes that a lot of the demoscene productions are finished in the last minute. Perhaps fittingly, the film itself was only finished on the day of the premiere. See more »

Quotes

Slyspy: Everyone has way too little time to make demos, so things are left to the last minute. You usually go without sleep for the last few days, only concentrating on your demo. That usually manifests as flaws and little imperfections, because they're literally finished at the last minute, but this also provides a thrill that keeps people going. So in a sense it's like a mental extreme sport.

Great "historical" audio-visual movie
6 May 2012 | by ChabexSee all my reviews

I know this movie from the director's mom- she recommended it to me. Well - I said - I'll give it a shot. After the first minute I could nonstop watching it since I was growing up in the 8 bit area and on this "historical" time line I came across some of the movie's demo/scene by chance - sweet memories.

Watching this movie I realized: wow these people are (still)around? They are making these things which are sometime much more better than a multi million dollar budgeted movie?

So even if you are younger it worth to watch because the visuals and the music is excellent and who knows? You might get inspired and become the next world famous scene coder.
