A Quickie with Rama

This has been shuttling around the infotubement supernetway recently, and with good reason — it’s a neat, well-done short film based on Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama novel, although when I say short, I pretty much mean “three minutes” or so. The visuals were created by Aaron Ross in 2001 for the Tisch School Of The Arts at NYU, and Phil Maroney added the voices and the soundtrack in 2009 while studying Sound Design at Vancouver Film School. Weird, but hey — what rendezvouses in Rama stays in Rama. Or something. (Via io9)
