Well shit, I’ve taken a bit more of a break from blogging than intended, but ah well here’s the catch-up…
Been working well too much in the last week, balancing filming and working. Still have to work on actually combining the two into a one regular thing.
48 Hours continues to be prevailing. C4 is currently screening three 48 films from this year every night at 11pm on a weeknight. Starting Wednesday, they’ll be screening the regional winners, Friday will be the wildcards as picked by Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro (super cool) and Saturday will be the televised finals (at 9pm if you are interested in watching). Our film will be screened last on Wednesday night which will be really cool and you’ll get to see our retarded intro and possibly my retarded interview as well. Past that, we don’t have any illusions of actually winning the entire competition and while it is an international competition and there’s no telling who could be picked for whatever reason, I highly doubt we’d win anything and it’s basically just cool, if not still surprising, to have gotten this far again.
Oh and if you’re unable to watch any of the episodes of the 48 Hours tv show, they’re online at the C4 website here. It’s pretty much how I’ve been following the show as I’m working when its on and come to think of it, might not even be available to watch the finals when they screen.
There’s plenty of other things to mention, but I’ll save it for another post. This week shall just be catch up week really as I start sorting out what I need to do next. Room currently looks like a post-tornado site and the boot of my car is filled with just as much junk to go through.
In the meantime here are some videos:
A very cool ‘stop motion’ video with post its and computer who ha.
An online comedy video series thing that’s pretty funny and manages to keep being so in subsequent videos.
And my current favourite awesome, the latest N.A.S.A. music video for the tract “A Volta”. Totally brilliant.
Also a few New Scientist articles I’ve enjoyed and cause the tabs are still open…
And the very cool article on The inside story of the Conficker worm.
