CGI Film: Hallucination of a Lost 16th Century Mariner

Here's a short 3D CGI film called "Navigation in Dreamtime."

The camera drifts through trippy dreamscapes, as ornate golden orbs and tendrils gently morph in shape, pattern, and color.

(Direct link to video) The animation is by Julius Horsthuis, who imagines that "It's 1596 AD and a ship is frozen in the deep arctic. No help is coming. The Navigators and Cartographers aboard, suffering from hypothermia and frostbite are starting to hallucinate."

Fractal-powered software is Mandelbulb 3D. Music is "Soul Medicine" by Mari Boine.
If you liked this, check out his "Phenotypic Sarcophagi."
