This fractal animation has been created by Arthur Stammet in May 2014 for the Fractalforums.com Digital Art Competition 2014.
This video describes a rather dangerous world, where nothing is really how it appears to its visitor, attracted by a golden surface which risks to turn at any moment into poison or a beautiful, psychedelic landscape. Nothing at all, to trust in. It's the Devil's fractal planet: totally unstable, stressing and fascinating. The best thing to do is to avoid landing on it. Stay away and don't try to contemplate any of the illusions it generates: you won't get the time for it!
The footage has been realized from scratch with Mandelbulb 3D, Jesse's genial fractal renderer from fractalforums.com and Eric Wenger's ArtMatic (uisoftware.com/artmatic/indexAMinfo.php) and the soundtrack has been composed by Arthur Stammet, improvising on his iPad exclusively with the Waldorf Nave App. Some video effects like Motion blur, light rays, green night view... have been added in Premiere with the ProDad Vitascene Plugin.
