Clockwork – K’nex Ball Machine

When I first began watching this video, I thought to myself: Ok – how could this possibly be interesting for a full 5 minutes? Then, I saw something pretty cool – and then something else, and then something else.

I could tell this was a jaw-dropping project from the get-go, but seeing some of the details (the loops, the ramps) were really impressive.


The Paper Chase – Contracts

Appropriate that I post this, as I’ve been spending most of the day working on putting together and playing around with fake contracts.

I love this movie, in kind of the same way I love Dead Poets Society – a classic movie about school and studying. So dated, and so terrific.


Bryan’s Video Proposal to Jamie (With a Little Help From Elvis and a Lot of Friends)

Jamie and I are going to Hawaii in August, and she’s a big Elvis fan. To work with that, I would like to get small clips of you lip-syncing to parts of “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis. Don’t worry, you wont have to do the whole song. Once I get a good grasp of who will be involved, the song will be chopped up and you will be sent a small part to lip-sync.


Bugs Bunny, Song Memory, and a Rainy Night in Rio

For some reason beyond my understanding, the song that Bugs Bunny first sings in the episode Long-Haired Hare got stuck in my head, a few days ago. And after kind of humming it quietly to myself, I came upon a sudden realization: I could look it up on the Internet!

I’ve never known the name of the song, and I’m not sure why it took me all this time to actually look the thing up. It’s been a bit of a mystery to me, and it’s silly to realize that I could have easily looked this up 5+ years ago.


Robbie: A Short Film About An Aging Robot, Made From NASA Archival Footage

Set 6,000 years in the future, Robbie is an aging self-aware robot looking back on his life in the last moments before his battery life runs out.

Created by Neil Harvey, the film is composed entirely from over 10 hours of NASA archival footage. I’m not 100% on this, as I assumed there were some scenes that involved manipulation, but I think it’s almost all done through video from NASA.
