Avatar - Teaser Trailer

Avatar takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when... the means to realize his vision did not yet exist...

Seriously waiting to watch this one in theater !

Vol Libre "First Fractal Geometry"

I just came across this video by (Pixar's Chief Scientist) Loren Carpenter, who describes his work as follows:

"I made this film in 1979-80 to accompany a SIGGRAPH paper on how to synthesize fractal geometry with a computer. It is the world's first fractal movie. It utilizes 8-10 different fractal generating algorithms. I used an antialiased version of this software to create the fractal planet in the Genesis Sequence of Star Trek 2, the Wrath of Khan. These frames were computed on a VAX-11/780 at about 20-40 minutes each."

I was not even born at that time. There is a primitive teapot in the scene, may be the beginning of it as well.
