Via Beth at Mindfull Chatter [sic] I came upon this amazing piece of computer animation. The best version of the 30-second film is the DivX format file [about 8 meg], so Windows users who don’t have it already should download the DivX codec if they want to enjoy the video it at its highest quality. A Master’s student in Australia did his thesis in computer animation on techniques to simulate realistic movement. He put the fruits of his efforts, along with his thesis, online. The animation itself—a muscular statue of Pan getting down to some classic disco late at night in a museum—is both stunningly convincing and (despite the absence of genitals) very gay indeed.
