A demo, how nice. Very neo-jobecore soundtrack.

Oh yeah .. Thought it was the most focused and more familiar demo of the competition. (Explaining what I mean by familiar: not "in your face")

big ups to jean9 for turning into such a cool coder in so little time. long live artistic girlfriends, too.

REM - Rapid Eye Movement... in your sleep! What's with the open eyes and slow gazing? :/

This would probably have made for a good "bad, involuntarily gay, wild-demo". The videos are repetitive, and the cuts out of sync. I like the single 3D-scene and the post-processing effects give everything a cool look. Also, the fallos-like tower looked nice. :p

But i can remember it from the compo, it had a really cool feeling and the soundtrack is ace.

one of the better demos in the compo. sound + all, excellent.

thumb up for stirring my brain
didn't really like it, more of "was fascinated in one or the other way"
quite disturbing stuff

I really love the soundtrack and the visuals. Perhaps a bit too long considering how many scenes there are though.

the idea and implementation were nice.
but the reuse of same materials made the overall product suffer in progression. it failed to achieve greatness.
thumb up for jean nine coding though.

one of my favorite BP release
I just love graphics, the concept is very interessant and the music inspire the same theme that the concept
this is an exemple of what i would like to do.

I think the 3d looks too smooth compared to the video.. Maybe it would help to lock the 3d framerate to the same framerate as the videoclips? The road was a bit ugly too... Strive more for realism to make the 3d blend better with the video or stick to pure video I'd say.. The doll was cool btw.

Cruelly prominent. Think, it caught the feeling. All the images, sounds, sensations, can't explain, just as never have an explanation of the forms filling the dozing consciousness being trampled by subconsciousness... during REM.

there is something special. smooth visuals, nice colors and soundtrack. need to watch it againg.

Liked the soundtrack, and the style was kinda cool, but it was a bit too long as it just got repetitive...
added on the 2005-04-16 18:43:50 by morten morten
Interesting, but too repetitive for my taste as well.

This works for me. It creates a mood holds it from start to finish with enough slight variations to keep my attention. Good work.

cool one, nice feeling, however it loops too much and more effects would have been appreciated

nice sort of idea; some very good use of footage.. just lacked something, a spark.. i don't know what.

I remember watching this particular piece at bp while someone (no identity revealed here) shouted: "Ei pojat, ei näin"... and I must admit, on that moment I fully agreed.

What anesthetic said was the first thing that hit my mind, requiem for a dream was really very strong (so why do I still smoke..) and this demo really blew me away. Fantastic atmosphere and the music just add to it, f.....g excellent.

This wouldve seriously kicked ass without the eye animations / stills and the "title flashing". Seriously.

The track's pretty awful honestly, but I like several of the visual motifs. Good video usage in demos is always a plus. Small thumb.
rulez added on the 2015-07-01 23:32:01 by noby noby
In my mind this is a demo that tells a story of someone trying to run away from a painful memory but never quite managing to escape it. I actually like the track. The eye superimposed with the night road is arresting. Some of the video imagery is a little bit arbitrary, e.g. the link to the rapid eye movements is not convincing in my opinion. Nevertheless, this is a great work.
