Visualized fractal planets.

Whole-Riemann-sphere Julia sets of meromorphic functions have been mapped onto rotating spheres. The backgrounds are parameter-space images, in regions where most parameters produce no stable periodic points.

Set to a soundtrack composed from several public domain musical compositions and sound effects.

Coloring methods used: Damien Jones's curvature average, Andreas Lober's Elliptic Harlequin coloring, and my own weighted sums coloring (suggested in part by discussions here).

Some additional visual elements are present in some scenes -- notably the intro and outro text (frames procedurally generated from simple text strings), moons (more Riemann sphere Julia sets), etc.

Video editing and postwork mainly done in my own custom software, with Virtualdub/x264 for just the encoding. Audio from public domain sources plus own work, composed using Audacity. Hat tip to freepd.com for offering a variety of public domain music.

I really like the Saturn-like planet. Overall I find it too long.

Thanks for the feedback, both positive and negative ... but the contest is mentioned, in the very first screen of text. smiley

This movie has a great potential... Now it is somewhat too static. And one small technical comment -- the text cursor of the monochrome display does not need to go till the end of the line.

nice, although the "spaceship or camera" does not move the impressions are awesome!
