The Relativity Train

I created this animation for the TC-RTC
raytracing competition. Unfortunately, I was the only entry for this round, which is "Relativity." I made an animation which tries to show the humorous consequences of the speed of light being constant across all frames of reference. A superhero blasts two robots aboard a train moving near the speed of light. Onboard observers observe them being blasted simultaneously. Stationary observers observe one being blasted first. Only this time there are diplomatic consequences for Earth!

If you're interested in the animation at all, go to the Vimeo page and see it full screen!
