This video was made by Steffen Bygebjerg in 2009 for the song "End Scene". The track is taken from Troels Abrahamsen's album WHT also from 2009.
The animation work was made in Adobe After Effects. Each frame was then printed and the print was subsequently scanned back into the computer. The scanned frames were then assembled back into the original animation, now with a new rugged look, created by the visit in the physical analogue world. No effects added after scanning.
A film by Luna Maurer & Roel Wouters.
Sound by Edo Paulus.

Thanks to Johan Rijpma,
- Start with a branch
-Tape an orange line ortogonal to the end of a branch, its length is one third of the branch.
- New branches emerge from the middle of a branch segment, and touch the orange line at its end points.
- The length of the brach is double the distance from its origin to the orange intersection.
- Now repeat the same steps.
It started with a really simple maths equation which I used to render out some stills ( tinyurl.com/discomaths ) which I added to the description on Flickr which in turn inspired Andy Best to amend slightly and render out two animated versions ( vimeo.com/2707163 / vimeo.com/2711988 ) which inspired me to create my own audio reactive (ish) animation.
The internets are fun if you share :-)
The tune is a quick edit I did of a Sir Drew bootleg I had on vinyl btw.
