Started working on visual effects for Alan Winston’s Jedi6 project again recently. Briefly obsessed over the idea of designing all CGI objects with elements from the old KBVRtv studio. Which led to these quick concept sketches.
Top 10 Trailers of 2011 (a mix of movies, video games, and not-actually-video promotional materials)
I think it’s interesting to keep track of great marketing maneuvers. The kind of things that are easily lost in time (especially if the product promoted is eventually revealed to be garbage. That doesn’t mean the trailer was bad! ). This list is mostly designed to catalog why certain strange things impressed me. I listed 15 things, because I didn’t have the heart to cut 5 of them. They’re listed in order of personal importance, not necessarily in order of quality or import to society (because it’s my blog – neener neener).
This was my favorite episode of Fringe. EVER. (so far).
It was probably good enough to make up for all the shitty episodes this season. Good enough that i’ll be buying the set, just so I can study this episode in more detail.
Walter encounters a peer.
Walter is a crazed genius who can move between dimensions, but here we see him meet a mad scientist who is able to move through time. they trade notes, lament their similar family-loss sob stories (which drove them each to their mad science speciality), and in the end they argue over the nature of god/science.
And, arguably, they both turn out to be right.
You don’t have to know the history of Fringe to appreciate. It can be enjoyed stand-alone, and I’d recommend watching it right now. Just go here
