This is a seriously good book. You can read some stuff about it if you like. So I’m thrilled that it is also a movie.
I’ve always wondered how these work. Not just how they get them into a bottle. But some of the other really microscopic engineering…
I enjoyed this.
Vimeo streams really fast on the iPad. On my Mac it puts the stop into stop motion…
From the description:
“We shot this video to demonstrate the capabilities of our OMCOPTER drone.
It showcases its ability to fly into buildings, close to actors and into high altitudes.”
Does it do that? You be the judge. All I know is that it features ninjas, and the camera man was a remote controlled helicopter. Both these things are awesome.
Descriptive titles are all I’ve got the brain matter for today… but this is impressive.
Some info (from here – where you can also watch a making of)
“The new film, Gulp, tells the simple story of a fisherman who gets swallowed by a larger predator. It was shot entirely with the Nokia N8 phone. “Strapping the device to a 40-meter high cherry picker on a massive expanse of beach with gale force winds seemed like a good challenge for the smartphone,” says David Bruno, a creative at Wieden + Kennedy London which created the spot along with directing team Sumo Science, from animation studio Aardman, and sand artist Jamie Wardley, from sand and ice sculpture specialists, Sand in Your Eye.”
I’m keen to see this series develop, because this first piece, a look at Carpentry, is pretty cool.
This made me laugh.

Feed your imagination, and feast your eyes. Why don’t we call this your dose of inspiration for the day.
So the Dalai Lama walks into a TV interview and the interviewer tells him a joke about a pizza shop. And becomes a viral sensation.
I like Karl Stefanovic, and I think it’s hilarious that this little bombed joke is making its way around the Internet, despite what the SMH says a lot of clever blogs are laughing with Karl. Especially because he is essentially laughing at himself.
What I don’t get is the enduring popularity of the Dalai Lama. Buddhism has great PR. He’s just an old man who doesn’t really stand for anything. And he smiles a lot. A few years ago I made this video. Before YouTube was around. So I put it online today.
