Welcome, irrelevant, to this first blog article. Today, I’m offering you to watch video productions from mostly unknown people with varying skills level.
#1 : Elarson & Shin Greer
This is a special mention, because, instead of a remake, it’s a true reproduction.
Using their VFX design skills with Adobe’s After Effects software, they’re working on reproducing all original elements and animations from the show at an unequally high fidelity level.
#2 : MK27502
MK27502 is a 7 min long video featuring extracts from PoI’s intro and S03E13 “4C” episode scenes.
While we can see extracts from the show throughout the video, a lot of home-made elements are superposed everywhere, including in non-POV scenes lol.
This VFX design is far away from perfection but it features boxes, windows, data explorer and even predicting engine !
In the lack of accuracy, diversity is the strength of this video.
However I can’t find anything about the author, could the Machine track him down ?…
#3 : Diomede / LegoSeries
I put this one here for the special prize of originality.
It is probably the most viewed and liked video of this top and it is well deserved !
SPOV is approximate and windows are a mix of intro and real elements but the concept is awesomely original. I love it.
It features :
- World map
- Feed space
- Intro’s ending animation
And the animation is perfectly synced with the original intro including Harold’s voice ^^
#4 : Théo Nexo
100% original : fan-made VFX, fan-made scenes, fan-made soundtrack, fan-made voiceover !!
Théo Nexo is a french student in cinema school, fond of GFX and VFX design.
I would trust him to create a spin-off of PoI finger in the nose lol !
Sorry it’s 100% french and YouTube’s automated subtitles sucks ^^
#5 : Kevin Gøhler
This is a parody of PoI’s intro, featuring a Machine watching over students to prevent acts of slacking… Lol very good.
Like the previous VFX, this one is 100% original.
Kevin Gøhler is a Danish 3D VFX designer.
#6 : Samu Rytkönen
Finnish VFX designer, drawer, web & print designer, and CEO of his own production company, Samu Rytkönen created a perfect remake of PoI’s intro.
#7 : Jules Vésigot-Wahl
Published on his YT channel named Zakouski Pictures, this french student is a VFX designer and scriptwriter.
His video features variously accurate windows, boxes, and feed space.
He also made a nice short movie that you can find on his YouTube channel, unrelated to PoI but cool. English subtitles are available.
#8 : Phil Anderson
This one is an almost perfect remake of PoI’s first season intro effects.
In my case, “perfect” doesn’t mean “identical”, but accurate enough to not feel a disgusting impression.
Phil Anderson is an american multimedia producer.
His website is terrible but guess how he quoted Harold in his “bio” lol !
#9 : Alejandro Sanclemente
This one is a spanish video based on PoI’s intro elements, featuring Ramin Djawadi’s music.
Alejandro Sanclemente is a Colombian motion designer, front-end & desktop developer. Portfolio
#10 : “Actionjunky”
This is a short video, mixing SPOV, MPOV and some very custom but not so bad VFX design.
I hope you enjoyed this Top 10, it was originally supposed to be a Top 20, yeah I didn’t stop at YT’s first results page lol, but honestly I worked hard to find the best videos I could.
There isn’t so much creators in our fanbase 🙂
However, I could still have missed some awesome content that you found while you were browsing the net, or maybe you created something yourself ? Please don’t hesitate to share your work and others’s work with us !
