This Visually Stunning Sci-Fi Short FRAKTAAL Was Randomly Generated By a Computer
This sci-fi short film Fraktaal is loaded with stunning visuals that were randomly generated by a computer. There's absolutely no story, just a bunch of crazy otherworldly images that a computer came up with using complex mathematical fractal patterns.
The man responsible for making this happen is Julius Horsthuis, who declares himself to be a lazy animator. Here's what he had to say about what went into this creation:
I borrowed the aesthetic from Science Fiction films, and isolated that into something that I hope will stimulate the imagination into its own spacefaring journey.
It so happens that I’m a lazy animator.
Using fractals, I can conjure up entire worlds without having to draw or model anything. These shapes hide in the formulas, they exist in a mathematical reality, all I need to do is explore those worlds and make them reveal themselves. For me, that discovery has become one of the most thrilling aspects of digital filmmaking.
It's pretty fascinating to see what came out of all this. Pretty cool stuff!
