Ancient computer animation

Created in 1990, "Breaking the Ice" is a charming story set in a strange bubble world of fish and birds:

The CGI creatures in this video (except for the protagonists) are examples of "boids", virtual life-forms which possess a very simple form of AI. They are programmed to simulate the flocking behavior of real birds and fish, following their fellows and avoiding collisions with them, or with obstacles.
