The Incredible Hulk King-Size Special #1 - October 1968

Arts • Views: 9,332

Featuring an anatomically exaggerated cover by the great Jim Steranko, here’s the first “King-Size Special” (which means it cost 25 cents instead of 12 cents) of Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk series, published in October 1968, purchased by a younger version of me at a small grocery shop on Kaimuki Boulevard and then sealed in a wooden box for 45 years.

Overnight Beauty and Wonder: Koh Yao Noi

A little haven of real Thailand
Arts • Views: 26,661

FULL BLOG POST with everything you need to know here!! wp.me

All shots around the local children at the pier were filmed with my second Phantom fitted with prop guards for extra caution.

This was shot on my holiday (yes my passion is also my job!) alongside some stuff for my GH4 review. Koh Yao Noi is one of the least developed islands in Thailand despite being right in the middle of the most touristic bay there. It’s a little haven of real Thailand with just 18km of roads.

Please read the in depth blog post linked at the top if you are interested in knowing more about what it’s like to fly the Phantom 2 or any part of this film. Here is a little bit of tech info anyway!

All shot with the GoPro Hero 3+ in 2.7K mode in either wide or medium (mostly wide) in Protune flat 25p

Vimeo

This documentary tells the story of one of the world’s most difficult and bizarre sporting events: The Barkley Marathons. This 100-mile footrace and its 60-hour time limit force athletes to run, crawl and climb an elevation gain equivalent to two treks up Mt. Everest. In nearly thirty years, only fourteen runners, out of over one thousand participants, have finished The Barkley.

The Edward Snowden-Oliver Stone Convergence Is Here at Last

Bringing the special Stone magic to the story
Arts • Views: 26,393

This is absolutely the perfect choice to direct a movie about Edward Snowden — the nuttiest conspiracy-mongering filmmaker in America: Oliver Stone Will Direct Film on Edward Snowden.

The film, produced by longtime Stone partner Moritz Borman, will be based on “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man,” by Guardian journalist Luke Harding, the Guardian reports. Snowden leaked the documents to Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald in June 2013.

The film would be Stone’s latest take on a contemporary political issue after pictures like W. and Nixon, and is likely to spawn plenty of controversy.

Oh no, controversy? I’m sure they wouldn’t want that.

Amazing Short Film: One Hour of San Diego Surfing Time-Collapsed to Two Minutes

Subtly surreal technique removes the time and space between the waves
Arts • Views: 21,669

Vimeo

This video was created from one hour of source footage shot from a bluff in San Diego the morning of Jan 21, 2014. I was interested in exploring the manipulation of water and to see how the movements and patterns from surfing interact. Watching surfing typically happens in one or two ways: in films/videos or in person standing on a pier, beach or bluff. In most surf films, the riders are so talented and the waves are so good it becomes an abstraction from the average viewer’s/surfer’s experience at an average break. On the other hand, watching in person can be very slow and depending on the swell there may be long stretches when nothing happens at all. This video is a playful attempt to split the difference and reveal just how much can actually happen in an hour in an otherwise nondescript surf spot with non professional riders. There are no CG elements, these are all real surfers and real waves with the time separating them removed. The video does not contain every wave that passed during the hour; I picked the best rides but otherwise tried to maintain chronology.

A sample of the source footage may be viewed here.

A look at the AE editing may be viewed here.

The San Diego Studies is a series of short videos that collapse time to reveal otherwise unobservable rhythms and movement in San Diego. The project is supported my MOPA San Diego and the San Diego Foundation. For more information about this video please visit cysfilm.com and mopa.org

‘Return of the Jedi’ - If Directed by David Lynch

So good

Dangerous Minds points out that George Lucas asked David Lynch to direct “Return of the Jedi,” the third film in the Star Wars trilogy — and here’s a video by “C-SPIT” that visualizes what that might have been like, in Lynch’s signature bizarro style. An amazing job!
