Artist Statement:

    The video “Déja Vu” was produced at the Helsinki University of Technology in 1993-94 as a student project of a postgraduate computer graphics seminar discussing various animation techniques. The camera trajectories, as well as the motion of the objects (except the bats) are based on keyframe or procedural animation. A behavioral model, similar to that presented by Reynolds at Siggraph ’87, was used to create the flock movements: an invisible leader boid is followed by visible ones whose flight paths are generated from simple, predefined rules.
