Contact Shot

0

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

Normal Items, turned into Space Ships

Instagram artist Spacegooose has a unique claim to fame, taking ordinary every day objects and re-imagining them as space ships. I first found him via this reddit post of a shampoo bottle. Here’s a unique take on a whisk:   View this post on Instagram   A deep space colony ship in orbit above a … Continued

This is a pretty neat diorama of a mix of LEGO scenes from the sequel trilogy.  What you can’t see from the photo is the moving ships that go around the perimeter.  Reddit video doesn’t let me embed it for some reason, so you’ll have to venture over there. {reddit}

Alternate History Thursday: 2017

I’m going to try something different this year for my long running Alternate History Thursday series.  Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story.  Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that … Continued

The Sci-Fi Air Show is an interesting cross between actual reality, and virtual reality.  Model maker and former ILM Visual Effects Supervisor Bill George is the person in charge of it all.  The idea here is that instead of static models of conventional aircraft, actual scale models used in Sci-Fi films are photographed, scaled up, … Continued

May the 4th Be with You

The above lamp was made by redditor marveldeadpool.  Yes, they made it themselves.  It’s pretty rad if I do say so myself.  He said it was Spielberg vs. Lucas, but it’s only Jaws vs. Star Wars.  He should have totally added E.T., or a Raptor.  I mean, there are 2 things representing Lucas.  But, alas, … Continued
