There really were no editing effects used in this, not even fades and no post production,

Just straight chop edits. this is how we saw it in real life.

If you like it please post

Posted:Storyline was shite biggrin

Lovely use of video feedback fractality biggrin

Was hoping for some crazy "lots of arm segments are moving but the ball's staying put" kind of mechanical isolationism frown

Very very pretty, though smile smile biggrin

Posted:I like the mixture of the effect and the iso's. I did want to see more of a person doing the isolating rather than a robot arm.

I see what you were trying to do, and the effects in the background really look amazing and work well, but I would definately like to have seen more of the hand iso's. A whole person was definately not needed at all.. that was a nice touch, Or maybe I'm looking into this too much... I probably am, oh, well...

VERY trippy though biggrin How was it done?
