Sync "is based on the idea that there is an underlying unchanging synchronisation at the centre of everything; a sync that was decided at the very beginning of time. Everything follows from it, everything is ruled by it: all time, all physics, all life. And all animation." (Max Hattler, 2011, 'Sync: Circular Adventures in Animation' in Virginie Selavy (ed.) The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology - strangeattractor.co.uk/books/the-end/)

An epic secret world is revealed within an attic during a rainstorm.
Finally up is my own little space opera : a mesmerizing choregraphy evoking atoms, DNA, seeds, spirals, fractals, etc... inspired by Anaxagoras of Clazomenae. http://philosophy.gr/presocratics/anaxagoras.htm
The first draft screened in 2008 as a backdrop for the robotic and live music performance by URBAN ORCHESTRA at the city council new year celebration meeting critical acclaim.
This is the final director's cut with updated soundtrack and tighter edits to my original vision : 42000 HD frames at 50p running for 14 minutes.
A fractal animation made using a variety of different circle inversion properties. Animation and sound design by Howard Quin.
The animation alludes to how impulses in the central nervous system travel from dendrites to neurons, then travel down axons to next neurons in the human brain.
