This is a zoom movie (1500 frames) exploring a particular region of the Mandelbrot set, the Elephant Valley of the West MiniBrot, at 10fps, 720x480 resolution. I have timed the animation so that every 10 seconds equals a 10x zoom in magnification. I appologize if the frame rate seems a little choppy, but at nearly 1Mb per frame, the 1501 count bitmap sequence took up around 1.4Gb of data plus another 1.4Gb for the uncompressed video file, and I only had about 5 Gigabytes of free space to work with on my hard drive before I started rendering. Per standard convention, I feel that the only proper way to end any good Mandelbrot zoom movie is by zooming into the darkness of a mini-mandelbrot itself, the same classic shape that the movie begins with.

One of the highlights I wanted to showcase in this zoom is a cross that appears around 2:04 in the video. I have also rendered a beautifully detailed cross from a nearby zone on DeviantArt:
