Digital Snapshot.. "What does a moment look like? Can snapshots freeze a moment in time? In Digital Snapshot, motion fragments were captured and rearranged in a new visual context via unconventional digital manipulations. A long take camera movement cycle generates a unique 'digital painting.' In this case Digital Snapshot enables the viewer to experience a virtual walk through a beautiful park during summertime."

This is very cool. I love the panoramas but Safari says at current pace the movie will download in 4 days, 16 hours. I also wished the Theory was in English. Hopefully Sherlock is up to the task of translating.

I spent 2+ hours downloading about 75 percent of the movie. It's pretty cool -- kind of reminds me of that REM video, Cinnamon (or something like that). I can't quite work out how they did it exactly. It almost seems like they used the Matrix style 360 degree still camera effect so they could pivot around a frozen image, but they did it with video instead of still. It must have taken some crazy patience to get all the source images.

Wow, that movie was impressive. (The video doesn't have a music credit. Anyone recognize it? it sounded a lot like Electric Birds [mp3] to me.)

Doh! Nevermind. There's a music credit in the about section.

Did anyone have any luck downloading the movie rather than streaming it? I tried to download every file and got an error every time. Streamed fine, though.

Downloaded it in about 3 hours on a cable connection. Then quicktime crashed.


Looked cool though.

I have one of the quicktime movies, and I'd upload it somewhere to a faster mirror, but I'd rather not foot the bandwidth bill myself. Anyone got any ideas?

crunchland, your links don't work for me. Could you maybe setup a torrent?
