The Tallest Waterslide

0

This is a nice 10 minute video going over the history of the development of the world’s largest waterslide. You should know, it didn’t really work out that great from the beginning. Think those terrible Roller Coaster Tycoon slides you’d make where everyone died. Yea, those. That’s right, it’s worse than the one at Action … Continued

The Life Straw

0

It seems like everyone has one of these. Or at least anyone who did any hiking or other outdoor activities. I have one, I never used it. But I trusted the sale and bought one anyway. Well, being stuck inside has got people doing all sorts of crazy things with their time. Have you wondered … Continued

Star Wars: Underworld

0

This is pretty neat, too bad it never came to fruition. Probably because of Disney, probably because an unknown number of reasons. It’s neat watching the behind scenes of this pilot that never went anywhere. It makes you wonder what other awesome shows exist out there as test footage forgotten away on a hard drive … Continued

OG Pawn Stars

Pawn Stars was a unique idea, take a Pawn Shop in Las Vegas and chronicle all the crazy stuff that comes in. It could have been fun, could have been interesting.

I know what you’re saying, when rivers flood here, they’re muddy, danger messes. Well this river is in a protected park in Brazil, and the … Continued

Agent Smith?!

jdbrew linked to this video explaining an insane (what I’m calling Fan) theory regarding The Matrix. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I understand that it’s 15 minutes long which include an unnecessary minute long intro, and (on my watch 2 (two)) pre-roll ads. Anyway, read the title of the post, then … Continued

Contact Shot

Everyday you learn something new.  I remember watching Contact many many times, but not being a cinematographer, or really anyone with an eye for filmography, I never paid too much attention to some of the great camera work in the film.  So, that being said here’s a behind the scenes commentary on how the scene … Continued

Scale Brick House

1

This person when through an awful lot of trouble to build this scale house and to be honest, I am very impressed with it.  However I’m not sure what the point of it was.  Especially since it’s mostly covered with stucco.  He could have gotten the same look with one quarter of the time and … Continued
