Hey guys, I’ve recently finally finished work on my major project at Bournemouth and so far the response has been pretty positive so I thought I’d put it up here.

The main emphasis of the piece is on atmospheric and powerful visuals. The idea is inspired by and uses an existing piece of music called "The Dead Flag Blues" by Godspeed you black emperor!. The amount of time spent on this project is quite hard to measure due to having 2 other projects and 2 exams running simultaneously but I'd say the vast majority of the work on this was done over a 3 month period. It's an entirely solo project. 38.2mb Mpeg4 dowload:
Thanks for the mirrors guys!
I've had a few problems finding a decent compression solution but the above is pretty much the best I could do, however it does feel like there's some framerate issues but hopefully it isn't too much of a problem. If anyone has any comments, suggestions or questions then please let me know, I'm eager to see what people think.
edit: If anyone is interested I’ve uploaded a small making of video
Also if you want to take a look at my project report I’ve uploaded that too, I can’t guarantee it’s interesting though:
