The Mind's Eye

ADDPMP564

The Mind’s Eye series consists of several art films rendered using computer-generated imagery of varying levels of sophistication, with original music scored note-to-frame. The series was conceived by Steven Churchill in 1990. It was produced, directed, conceptualized and edited by Jan Nickman of Miramar Productions and produced by Steven Churchill of Odyssey Productions. The first three products in the series were released on VHS (by BMG) and LaserDisc (by Image Entertainment[1]) and also released on DVD (by Simitar Entertainment). The fourth program in the series was released and distributed by Sony Music on DVD.

The typical entry in the Mind’s Eye series is a short package film, usually 50 to 60 minutes long, with an electronic music soundtrack over a series of music video-like sequences. The original film, titled The Mind’s Eye: A Computer Animation Odyssey by director and co-producer Jan Nickman and co-producer Steven Churchill, consisted of a non-rigid structure of many semi-related sequences. The general style which characterizes the series is light and cartoony due to the difficulty of rendering more complicated images using the computers of the day.

The computer animation sequences that appeared in the films were generally not produced specifically for the Mind’s Eye series but rather were work originally created for other purposes, including demo reels, commercials, music videos, and feature films. Director and co-producer Jan Nickman then assembled these sequences into a narrative through creative editing, which resulted in a double platinum selling film considered to be a milestone in the field of computer animation. As a result, “The Mind’s Eye: A Computer Animation Odyssey” reached #12 on Billboard’s video hits chart. This approach gave Churchill access to the best-quality computer graphics of the time without having to bear their substantial production costs.
