Video: Uncanny Tribute To Mountain View’s Monte Vista

Still no news, so here’s another retro video to share. Made way back in 2009, this was some seriously strong computer-based 3D modeling, made as a tribute to a long-gone Mountain View CA landmark, the Monte Vista Drive-In, which was open from 1950 through 1978. (Not to be confused with the still-active Star Drive-In in Monte Vista CO.) Parts of the video feel like they’re in the uncanny valley, where people and objects look almost perfect but are off just enough to make it feel weird, but that’s 2009 for you! Enjoy!
