Operation White Widow

Jacek Mazur (script/direction/modeling/animation), Marek Skrobecki (artistic supervision) and Tommy Zee (music/sound design) partnered with the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg to create this unique animated short with a fantastic didn’t-see-that-coming ending. It’s a treat to watch; enjoy!



“This video was mostly shot live on a pyrotechnic stage…the only artificial visual effects are the face explosion, bubble transformation and smoke to body bag transformation.” If that doesn’t pique your interest for this, the latest from the Freelance Whales, I don’t know what else will.  Here, let me sell it a little more: it’s gorgeous.

MTV, at least as a source for good music videos, has been dead a long, long time but, who cares when ultra-talented production outfits like NEUE are making stuff like this and posting it online for free? Speaking of free, ‘Enzymes’ is available as complimentary download over at Green Label Sound. Enjoy!

A Show, A Comet, A Storm

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day for Febuary 5, 2007

Comet McNaught (kinda sounds like a friend of Buzz Lightyear, no?) passes between a fireworks show and an incoming storm in Perth, Austrailia.  As seen on the reliably excellent Astronomy Picture of the Day by NASAClick through for a high-res version.
