***a friend of mine suggested i put a health warning in this description. and considering the extended length of this type of swirly morphing video, often with no apparent focal point, and shifts in color, shape and perspective, it may adversely affect certain people who are susceptible to motion sickness. also might trigger seizures for some people with photosensitive epilepsy, so viewer discretion is advised.***

720p hd version of the 1st music video is now available on youtube.

I suppose it had exactly the effect it is supposed to have! (at least I think so) I put it on loop and watched it 5 times in a row. The first time I had to pause after two minutes because I started to feel dizzy. Then after getting used to the flow of colours, I could watch the rest I without pausing.

You know, the effect it had on me could probably described as some positive form of sedation. And it works much better then my sedating medication does. My body and mind felt all relaxed after a few minutes. Your animation combined with the music playing was like being in a pleasant dream, travelling through different dimensions and experiencing what one may call "eternal peace". If this is what dying feels like, then I am looking forward to it.

Also I shared your link on facebook and my buddy :iconravers-disease: loved it, too!

So you and Thelma did a great job! I hope you will do more in future, even if it takes you an eternity :3 Your results are worth the effort. :iconweekenddanceplz: And I hope I will be able to own a DVD with this and other videos one day, if you really plan to make one.

thanks very much for the feedback sheepi. personally i've found this style of digital animation and music significantly helps reduce my stress levels. and i can become so relaxed i start to fall asleep while watching these videos, especially if i leave them looping in a dimly lit room.

and thanks for helping promote our work here. this is one of the reasons viking trance and i decided to release the streaming and downloadable versions of the music videos for free, so hopefully many more people over time will get to experience this powerful art form.

admittedly, this 1st full length video did take 14 months to complete. a lot of which was learning what i could technically do with blender, and what my mid range laptop was capable of. the 2nd video i have planned, which will hopefully be using the astra fractals, from some of my previous tests, should be quicker to produce. and i've already concept designed most of it in my head, so it's just a case of finding time to work on it.

i am currently taking a short break from the psy art to work on my video games project, although i intend to balance the two projects as much as possible in the near future. especially as while the psy art is rendering, i can be doing research or simple work for the games project. and if ever in the future i own more than one laptop, or pc, then i could be even more productive.

as for the dvd and or blu-ray, i've found an online printing and shipping service which sounds good and is priced very well. although i currently don't know how to produce the contents like menus etc. the videos should be straight forward technically, when we have enough of them.
