Brownian Motion is an immersive short film made to be seen in full dome theaters or planetariums. It was premiered at Immersphere (international fulldome film festival) in Brasilia, where it won the Best Movie Award (Jury award).




Brownian motion is a visual and cosmic journey, that explores how life emerges from automated processes. All animations come from the same noise generation system known as "fractal brownian motion". This abstract journey is meant to be a sensory experience, a visual contemplation.
Veins, ribs, flangs, cells, seems to appear in these abstracts patterns, their movements suggest life growth, evolution, death and rebirth… One could also recognize cosmic shapes in these abstract patterns : aurora borealis, storms, and electric arcs seem to blend with organic shapes.
