This past month has been incredibly stressful. I have had a rather large attack on my website, which is now down until further notice, and I worked at a job all day on weekdays. The result is that this video is possibly more rushed to completion than any other one I've made. The animation quality is below my personal standards and I feel like I should have edited the music some more, but I will unfortunately be out of town for a little while now, and to be honest I just want to have a break. I'd like to say that I'll come back and fix things up later, but in reality I know I won't. I don't know how this round of NATA will turn out, but I wish everyone the best of luck.

As far as the plot goes, I always sort of wanted to make something where the protagonist finds himself in what is basically the position of a god, and then breaks under the pressure. I also decided to mix in another idea I had which involved having the world contained inside itself, so that there would be an infinite string of identical worlds inside each other where a change in one affects all of the others because they are the same world. IT is from that concept that I tried to tie in this round's theme, "the butterfly effect", and also where I got the title "macrocosm" from. I still feel that there's a lot more I could have done with the concept, especially given the rushed quality of this entry, so maybe I'll revisit the ideas later or something.

I'd just like to give thanks to my friend Laura who helped play some of the music to save me some time, and once again, I need to thank Bing for his awesome music, which you can download at highfivespaceship.bandcam

For the record, events in this movie do not have anything to do with possible recent discoveries of particles. It was maybe just a little bit of a nudge in the sciency direction.

We heard you liked your earth, so we put a earth in your earth to help your earth.

Good flash :D

Nice, representing the entire earth well enough to truly control it like a god probably can't be achieved by using a rough low count polygon like how the digital earth(s) were shown as on the computer monitor(s), but still a great flash.

But using a higher poly count would mean I'd actually have to do GOOD modelling! ...yep I'm lazy

Wow, great movie. Well animated, nice music. I think the amber phosphor screen color was a great choice over the well-known green phosphor. It is a minimal detail but makes a whole difference.
Fun fact: The hostname of one of my computers is "lab". =P

Pahgawk responds:

The decision to change the screen colour was also partially based on this weird thing that happens where I feel more bored with what I'm working on if the colours are too dull, so I threw in some brighter colours to contrast the blue. Also, the lab thing is a little reference to a video I made early last year, which didn't fare so well, but has the same username and hostname as in this video, which possibly connects the two storylines. I was also considering naming the computer something like "atlas", as I have a habit of naming my own computers after greekk mythological characters (the one in my basement is names Hades, for example.)
