The Colours of Infinity

Paddy Duke sent in this great video about Fractals.

"Arthur C. Clarke presents this unusual documentary on the mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set) in the visually spectacular world of fractal geometry. This show relates the science of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the hand of God in the design of the universe itself. Dr. Mandelbrot in 1980 discovered the infinitely complex geometrical shape called the Mandelbrot Set using a very simple equation with computers and graphics."

I know this isn’t exactly the subject matter that’s normally discussed here, but I saw this today and just had to post it.  Really cool 80′s video vibe here, complete with old school video effects and VHS "PLAY" text overlay  at the beginning. Really cool how the VHS tracking is off at the beginning like it’s an old tape, they really did a great job making this feel authentic.  The whole thing is an interesting departure for this guy and shows that along with a whole lot of style he has a great sense of humor. The video was directed by someone called "Melina", not sure who that is, but good work. Snoop Dogg – Sensual Seduction Video >

Legowelt Disco Rout

While discussing some plans for a future Tycho video with Ghostly, the Legowelt "Disco Rout" video by Brazilian firm Lobo.cx came up.  This was an incredible video at the time (2002, Ghostly International), and still is.  It’s like a bunch of European travel posters coming to life.  Lobo did a great job making it all feel authentic while lending a modern edge with the 3D work.  The song itself is amazing as well; the video fits it perfectly.  Listening to this track always makes me think of driving an ’84 BMW down the Autobahn at speed with perforated driving gloves and Ray Ban Pilots.  Jakub probably did that already, or at least mocked it up for a photo-op.
