When CGI Meets Ferrofluid, Things Get Weird

Video: The magnetised liquid known as ferrofluid already looks like some kind of alien substance, but a design studio in Barcelona created a short video using this strange material along with CGI to create something that resembles a Pixar film you'd watch in hell.

According to its Making Of video, the team realised that ferrofluid when magnetized and shot with a macro lens naturally creates Nordic landscapes. The design team then used CGI to fill in the more detailed shots of a boat, cottage, clouds and elk.

I'm hoping for a story-driven sequel. Nevertheless, the effect is gorgeous.
