Music Video: NSA SONG

Reemember last month when John Oliver gave that hilarious interview with Edward Snowden about the NSA seeing your Dick Pics?  Well, this week ADHD joins in the fun, stealing a page from Schoolhouse Rock, and educates us on what the NSA really does with all of their high-tech surveillance equipment. NSFW!

Video: Adventure with Sticky Notes

To promote its 4K Action Cam, Sony created this OK Go-worthy video, in which they drove the cameras on a robotic platform surrounded by thousands of moving sticky notes which created a colorful landscape to travel through.
"Enjoy the color adventure with more than two hundred thousand sticky notes shot 100% by Sony’s 4K Action Cam, FDR-X1000V! You have never seen such a playful POV movie with the synchro of sounds and gimmicks."

Video: ILM 40th Anniversary

2015 marks the 40th anniversary of Industrial Light and Magic, the most revered special effects company in the world. It was famously created by George Lucas in 1975 to help make his movie, Star Wars, and has since gone on to basically create almost every single big special effects movie you've ever seen in a theater. Here's a jaw-dropping, one-minute montage of their 40 year history, up to and including Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
"In 1975 George Lucas formed Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to create the special effects for his space opera Star Wars. Since that time, ILM has contributed to over 300 films in the process earning 15 Academy Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Visual Effects and 28 Scientific and Technical Achievement from the Academy."

Documentary: Our Star Trek

The new documentary short "Our Star Trek: The Fifty Year Mission" focuses on the fan series Star Trek Continues.
"Star Trek - it's iconic, but many do not fully understand what it means to the world.

In the wake of the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, is Gene Roddenberry's original vision for humanity still alive? Centered around the fan production, 'Star Trek Continues', this documentary film explores some of the people who create Star Trek today and their quest to get it right.

This film is a fan production about a fan production, but possibly about much more than that. The cast and crew of 'Star Trek Continues' facilitate an important discussion about what makes something truly Star Trek.

There are MANY other fantastic Star Trek fan productions out there - I encourage people to go check those out too. Budget limitations forced us to make only one trip and the STC Enterprise happened to be closest to us.

My hope is that this film, in a very small way, will help make sense of what Star Trek means to the world. As the old Vulcan saying, popularized by the late Leonard Nimoy goes, "Live long and prosper"."

Lecture: Why Akira Matters

Katsuhiro Otomo’s anime masterpiece Akira is widely regarded as one of the most groundbreaking and influential films of all time. Based on the artist’s own landmark manga series of the same name, the film not only shattered box office records around the world but has retained a fiercely dedicated audience of animators and aficionados for more than twenty years – and for good reason. Akira revolutionized animation and arguably saved the Japanese film industry, paving the way for a new generation of artists and spawning a worldwide acceptance of animation as high art.  In this brief video, Joe Peacock explains some of the many reasons why Akira matters.

Lecture: Do We Live In The Future?

PBS Idea Channel host Mike Rugnetta explores whether we live in the future, er, now. Rugnetta looks at what our concepts of “The Future” mean for the present, and whether we’re missing out by documenting and preparing for it.
"We spend a lot of time thinking about THE FUTURE. But spoilers, maybe the future is now! Forget hoverboards, flying cars, jetpacks, and structures made of bubbles — the future is here, and your notion of the one you were “promised” was probably a lie. Look around you! Computers the size of pennies, instant communication across the oceans. The Future is now! But why still do we defer to an idea of “The Future”? And what happens to Now when we’re living in the future? Watch this week’s episode of PBS Idea Channel and find out!"

Short Film: Luke & the Void

"Luke & the Void" Written and Directed by Matt Harris-Freeth

"Luke & the Void" is a stylised and cinematic sci-fi short film set in 1986.  An only child, Luke has problems at home and at school, so he embarks on a mission to leave it all behind.

Short Film: Kung Fury

"Kung Fury" Written and Directed by David Sandberg of LaserUnicorns

"Kung Fury" is a completely over-the-top eighties-style action comedy that was funded through Kickstarter early last year.  In it, Kung Fury, a Kung Fu master-slash-renegade cop, travels back in time to kill Hitler.  The events that ensue are the very epitome of "good bad" movie tropes.  The only thing missing is Bruce Campbell.

The film's campaign was launched in December 2013 was backed by more than 17,000 people for a total of US$630,000 in funding.
"During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assasinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has it’s foundation in 80s cop movies."

Lynton Levengood illustrates dragons as though they were cats, which might not be that nerdy, except that I spent a good deal of my childhood in Pern, imagining just such a pet.
"I am an artist from South Africa. I grew up loving fantasy art and stories. The dragons that inhabited them always felt like the most imposing of characters. I loved imagining what they would look like. I try work humor into my work as much as I can, there is so much inspiration out there.

Cats and dogs inspire me with the funny things they do, old sayings and jokes, even the news. It really makes me happy to see people smile, both young and old as they look through the modern dragons."

"Fantastic Voyages" by Toronto-based Steve McDonald

Do you ever get bored riding around in the plain old land-bound vehicles?  Weren't we promised flying cars?  In a body of work being developed for a book project called “Fantastic Voyages” Steve McDonald imagines a world of flying cars, boats, buses, and rickshaws all flying above McDonald's signature cityscapes.  The project is still in development, eventually, it will include over sixty different locations.

Mad Max: Fury Road blasted into theaters last week and the reactions have surpassed all expectations.  Charlize Theron steals the show with her character Imperator Furiosa, who fans are already calling one of the leading ladies of genre film after Sigorney Weaver's Ripley and Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor.  The one-armed heroine has already amassed a huge following, and those fans are flooding the Internet with fan art. Here’s a sampling of the great stuff folks have been making to pay tribute to this incredible character.

LorenzoAE: John Oliver isn't Mad Max: He's Part of the Problem. "Oliver isn’t going to be Mad Max, nor will he be Howard Beale, Eugene Debs, or Spartacus. He’s going to be John Oliver—an employee of the Time Warner media empire who’s valued highly enough as a corporate asset to make millions of dollars a year. If he or any other celebrity threatened the corporate bottom line rather than serving it, he wouldn’t have his own show, he’d be stuck writing media criticism for free on a WordPress site. If that isn’t obvious, then someone needs to read more Chomsky and watch less John Oliver."

Video: Daredevil (Law & Order Edit)

Law & Order credits style would be perfect for a spin-off called Law & Order: Hell’s Kitchen. People raved about the grounded, crime drama-style and tone of Daredevil, and so giving the series the opening credits of one of the most iconic crime procedurals of all-time just makes sense. You can just imagine scenes from the show beginning with that signature “donk-donk” sound.

CineFix reimagines the plot the classic 1994 prison drama film The Shawshank Redemption as an old-school 8-bit video game from the 1980s.

Video: LEGO: First Person Shooter

Back in the mid nineties, Lego released their first 3D video game.  Since then, Lego video games have become a genre standard. There are now countless Lego video games out there, both good and bad, but the one game everyone wants from Lego will most likely never be made as it’s too violent for the kid friendly brick building company.

Thankfully, Andrew M is able to show us what a Lego first person shooter game just might look like.

Short Film: NULL

"(NULL)" by David Gesslbauer & Michael Lange

Created in a month, for an experimental workshop at Filmacademy Baden-Württemberg, Germany, David Gesslbauer & Michael Lange’s "(NULL)" employs a creative aesthetic to the tell the easily identifiable tale of a girl looking to break free of her routine.

Whilst the narrative for "(NULL)" doesn’t exactly break any new ground (but that’s kind of the point), its approach to storytelling makes it a very distinct and watchable short.
"Routine or vicious cycle? An unknown girl breaks out of her daily grind by undergoing an intense audio-visual trip."

Short Film: Donning the Digital Mask

"Donning the Digital Mask: Anonymous" is a Senior project of Chris Finn from the Savannah College of Art and Design.  While it's a bit short on plot, it's long on style.  It looks like the setup for the coolest Hollywood hacker movie ever, and it's presented in a way that makes me believe a film based on this concept would make one hell of a great movie.
"Since its beginning on 4chan, the internet-driven collective Anonymous has emerged as one of the leading hacktivist movements, targeting high-profile institutions with fearless cyber attacks. Looking into how this collective of online hackers went from pranksters to vigilantes for global justice lead to an intriguing discovery of unique qualities that form Anonymous. A certain tonal element of Anonymous resonated with me and immediately translated into an exciting aesthetic I was eager to take on. There is a mesmerizing and compelling, but also terrifying quality to the dynamic spread of a collective who’s story is being written with every new day and operation."

USS Enterprise Desk and Chair by Super-Fan Builds

Interior Design: Submarine-Themed Pub

A year ago, 6th-Sense Interiors came up with the idea of a themed pub meant to faithfully render the interior of a submarine for one of their clients. The vault shaped ceiling as well as the wagon shaped space divided in two different rooms seemed perfect for this kind of design.

The Romanian Sub pub, in its final form, would have a large and small room, each with its own bar according to their size, together with a small booth. The pub is designed in industrial style with steampunk features. According to the concept idea, the design was supposed to include several details that are commonly found inside any submarine: control panels, periscopes, visible pipes, bolted metal doors, torpedoes, radars.  It's not quite "steampunk," but it's still a sight to behold.

The small room is called the Engine room,  because of the big propeller powered by engines."

"Each Poke ball is made of a high grade k9 crystal the same material used in high end home decor. The crystal is carved into a 80mm diameter(baseball size) ball and has fine point 3d laser engraving done to it. Using the latest in 3d engraving technologies we burn the image straight into the crystal. This laser is 5 times more precise than traditional 3d engraving to offer amazing detail and realism to each Pokemon."

Featured Site: Mare Internum

"Mare Internum" is a sci-fi web comic set on Mars launched earlier this year by Der-shing Helmer, the creator of the fantasy web comic The Meek.  The comic centers around Rebekah “Bex” Egunsola, an entomologist who arrives at her new post on an isolated Mars research station, where she meets the station's previous occupant, Michael Fisher, who has just been fired.  Bex is on a mission to determine the feasibility of raising crickets on Mars, but Fisher's mental stability is questionable.  Tension quickly builds between the two as Bex struggles to learn everything she needs to know to survive at the remote outpost while also dealing with Fisher's personal demons.

Shing describes it as "a comic about isolation, living with imperfections, being in dark places, and yeah also bugs and robots I guess. It is also a way for me to communicate some feelings about some bad times in my life without having to actually talk about them. That’s the power of webcomics- it’s a way for me to share a message with you, to teach and hopefully entertain, all without you needing to leave your room. Or me mine, haha."

What sets the comic apart is that the author, Shing, spent two years researching the science behind the story to make sure that it is as accurate as possible.  That makes this a very plausible story that few space nerds are going to be able to resist.  It reminds me of some of my favorite sci-fi movies, like Solaris, Moon, or 2001.  Yes, it's absolutely the science fiction elements that draw you in, but ultimately what keeps you at the edge of your seat is the human drama.
