Cucumber Studios and Electric Dreams
In 1984 Rocky Morton and Anabel Jankel of Cucumber Studios - at the time known for their music videos, and later as the creators of Max Headroom - contributed to a spectacularly eighties romcom entitled Electric Dreams. The sequence in question sees a sentient computer dreaming of preventing an earthquake - trust me, it makes sense in context...
Themed around contemporary computer graphics, but made primarily through analogue animation, the sequence is an example of the pseudo-CGI phenomenon that I wrote about here.
Thanks to Chris Sobieniak for bringing this one to my attention.
