an funny animated movie illustrating the "questions about life: why , how & what?", which in fact are the "top words in teenage poetry albums". the movie aims to exploits the omnipresent Powerpoint visual culture in search for its philosophical potential, using intersections & diagrams to form a grand "association-chain-massacre".

Before throwing around big words like "plagarism", I would encourage you to perhaps actually view the work...

OP: "the movie aims to exploits the omnipresent Powerpoint visual culture in search for its philosophical potential"

ben: "Plagarism?"

I think you both missed the point. If anything, it was a misleading summary from infosthetics in the sense that their post omitted the filmmaker's allusion to indexed.blogspot.com. The link is quiet clear.

as Joe mentioned, the original link clearly states: "The diagrams are inspired by the site indexed.blogspot.com created by Jennifer Hagy".

having said that, I find it a stretch to consider any other humoristic infographic diagram as plagiarism. the movie has added several unique qualities.

My apologies, I wasn't able to view it while at work and leapt to a false conclusion.

I find the flow of the animation addicting. What tools do they use to create it?

Elias I'm going to guess that it was created using a 3D program such as Maya, Lightwave, or 3D Studio Max. It is very clean and well done. I could be wrong but that would be the easiest way to move around from diagram to diagram.
