From "Natural Phenomena", Alias Research, Inc. SIGGRAPH
'88. Here are the credits.
This movie shows a variety of simulation and rendering effects
including sky color simulation, interacting particle systems,
continuous growth plant modeling and physically-based worm locomotion.

Her Majesty's Secrent Serpent
The entire movie of "Her Majesty's Secret Serpent",
Apple Computer, Inc. SIGGRAPH '89.
Her Majesty's Secret
Serpent (30.2 MBytes)
The film features "Frank the Snake" as a secret agent
dropped behind enemy lines to retrieve a lost satellite film canister.
The snake was animated entirely using autonomous behavior driving
a physical simulation. Related

The Audition (84.5 MBytes)
Following an unfortunate accident at the circus, Eric the Dynamic
Worm Jr. appears for an audition. This movie demonstrates further
developments in combining behavior and physically-based worm motion.
It also shows the results of early facial motion tracking applied
to the circus proprietor. Related
Splash Dance, Apple Computer, Inc. SIGGRAPH '90.
Splash Dance (38.4 MBytes)
This movie showcased an efficient, stable fluid dynamics model
based on height fields. It also was an early example of caustic
rendering for the underwater sequences. Related

Extending the water simulation code used for Splash Dance, this
movie showed the combination of the water mesh simulation model
with particle systems. For the fountain sequence, the particles
interacted with each other and were rendered using a form of iso-surface
modeling. For the waterfall sequence, 600,000 particles were used.
A form of self-shadowing volume rendering was used for rendering
