The Pyramid – 3d Animation

This is my fan version of an animation called “The Pyramid” (which aired during the 90’s). Early CGI short animations like The Pyramid are what got me really interested in 3d animation/art. In my version, the visual design is influenced by Incan and Aztec art.

While working on this project I learned the original source animation was made in 1989 by a company called Symbolics and the animation was originally called “The Little Death”. New music and additional video was later added and the video was remade as “The Pyramid”. This is the version that was included in the CGI compilation video “Beyond the Mind’s Eye”.
