I’m a few weeks behind, but this video on the fallen from World War II is really well done and worth the time to watch.
An animated short from Ben Barrett-Forrest.
A Boy and His Atom is a short from IBM that uses atoms to create frames of a movie. They zoom in over 100 million times and take pictures, frame-by-frame to create a film. Impressive work. The behind-the-scenes short film talks a bit about how they did it.
A dog takes care of its master, a short from Madeline Sharafian.
A film about sound. Be sure to listen with quality headphones.
With all the technology around us, sometimes we forget that not everything needs to be documented, some things need to be lived. A short film by Eliot Rausch.
The first part of a documentary from Jonathan Minard about the Internet Archive and their work to archive, well, just about everything, including books (and a look at their physical book warehouse).
A spoof on House of Cards that Kevin Spacey and a bunch of politicians/reporters did for the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Daniel Day Lewis plays Barack Obama. Tracy Morgan plays Biden.
The first on the sound (including M83’s work) throughout the film and how they did it.
And the second one below is about the special effects and graphics that were used in the film, many of them in-camera.
The new episodes of Arrested Development will be going live on Netflix on May 26. Entertainment Weekly has a clip of one of the new episodes!
Funny or Die released iSteve a few days ago (I’m still catching up). Sadly, it’s not embeddable, but I definitely recommend you watch the first Steve Jobs movie.
A short film from Ryan Koo. The lead-in for the upcoming Manchild feature film.
In the middle of a zombie apocalypse, a father does everything he can to protect his most precious cargo, his infant child.
Apparently Patton Oswalt will be guest starring on Parks & Recreation this week. In it, he filibusters a city council meeting. They just kind of let him go at it… Pretty good stuff.
The teaser trailer for Sparkles and Wine (being released on May 8) is just entrancing. Even though I know how the effect is done – a fairly simple effect with lighting – I still can’t take my eyes off of it.
Really, don’t do it. As the video proves, it’s horrible. Trust me. Really. I wouldn’t lie.
I often watch documentaries made by Vice. Turns out, they have a TV show on HBO now. The first episode is available on YouTube and is about the violence in the Philippines and Afghanistan. Pretty incredible reporting.
A biographic film based on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s years in the Rhode Island School of Design. Fairey is of course the designer of Obama’s Hope poster and the original Mozilla dino logo, among other things.
Perhaps the final trailer for Man of Steel, given that it comes out in two months. By far my favorite trailer as well.
