Dark Knight

I was thinking back on just how powerful the effect of The Dark Knight was, so I stayed up late and watched the BluRay last night. It is still a heavy piece of cinema, the Joker is wonderfully…


WoWing with the Family

The Chilli sisters (Kischilli, Nachilli and Alichilli) have been having a great time together over the holidays. There is something fun about the 3 of us playing together, rather than going off on…


Dragon Training

[Theatrical poster for How to Train Your Dragon] The second of the 3D trailers we saw at Avatar was for How to Train Your Dragon, a new 3D animated film from Dreamworks. I am not sure about this one…


Tim Burton's Alice

[Alice in Wonderland theatrical poster via Wikipedia] One of the 2 trailers we got to see at the Avatar 3D screening was Tim Burton's take on Alice in Wonderland. This is the kind of story that is…


Toy Shelf

I have a few more figures on my growing toy shelf. 3 figures from the Tim Burton series from Dark Horse, namely Brie Boy, Staring Girl and The Pin Cushion Queen are very cool in both design and…


AVATAR again

Watching AVATAR again on the IMAX 3D screen was wonderful. I dont generally see films twice at the cinema, that is mighty rare, so it does speak to the quality of the film both as a tale and as…


AMNH Digital Universe

Here is a stunning video by the American Museum of Natural History showing our planet Earth in relation to he known universe. It does gloss over galactic structures and super-clusters etc that could…


Stompy Robot Video

Here is a very cool animation piece by Federiko Alvarez out of Uruguay. Reports (like this one) are claiming extremely low budget figures and seem to give Fede credit for everything, regardless it is…


Avatar Visuals

Here are a few more images from the Avatar Flickr site which show off how gorgeous this film iss. I am just building up the enthusiasm to go see it again later this week maybe. The detail and realism…


Iron Man 2

The trailer for the next instalment of Favreau's Iron Man is out and looks great. It may not have the luxury of the 'origin' story to tell, but there seems to be plenty going on that should be great…


SGU

Watched the intro episodes of Stargate Universe on the 10 website a few days ago. I thought it was quite a dramatic beginning with some interesting characters and clearly extending the mythology of…


Femto Freckles Brief

The freckles concept has been going through a fair degree of evolution in the background of my head. With James Horner's stirring AVATAR soundtrack in the background I think things have finally come…


AVATAR

Avatar was simply remarkable - in 3D at IMAX it is a very special cinematic experience indeed. I will have to cover things in more detail a little later, after it sinks in perhaps. I am planning on a…


Figures and the McFarlane sets

I got myself a little set of chunky Hasbro Star Wars characters to add to my shelf - it is slowly looking the part. The little R2-D2 and a pair of Jawas are pretty cute next to the Toy Story figures…


Spacial Geometry

I often think of nature as being very amorphous in its visual creations, but in truth there is a fair bit of order in what springs from the incomprehensible number of variables. These images from the…


I Adore You in Colour

Just a quick coloured version of the I_Adore_You doodle.


Post-it stop motion

This is a cool TVC, the Post-it note commercial shows real dedication to the taskand we get a glimpse of the work required to create it. I also like the pixel-like nature of the post-its themselves.…


Cutest Doodle

I did a cute doodle during a few meetings today: --- --- --- wait for it --- --- it says... --- I adore you maybe this would make a fun t-shirt...


Scientific Images

There is a cool article/gallery on Popsci which compiles this years most amazing scientific images. Here are a few to inspire a closer look. [Images from Popsci]
