Backbeat To The Future

I really should be posting this on the 21st October but I couldn't wait. For you see on that date we will have reached the point in time that Marty McFly travelled to in Back To The Future. To celebrate, Eclectic Method has created a mega-remix of BTTF sounds for you to boogie along to. Great Scott!

Alex Bishop is an expert luthier, transforming wood into complex musical instruments. In this mesmerising short film, we get a snapshot of his life as an artist. "There's something about working with your hands and working with wood that detaches you from technology," Bishop says. "You don't have the obstacles of everyday life in the 21st century, and that's a liberating experience."

Cardboard Car

I'm not sure how well it last in the wet but Lexus have made a beautifully crafted car...Entirely out of cardboard. Inspired by origami it looks absolutely stunning.

I both love and hate this video. On the one hand it reeks of hipster indulgence. Over-used faux vintage tints to the colour palette; craftsmen with beards, brand new clothing and brand new tools; worst of all is the apparent gratuitous use of green wood. Is it sustainable? Wastage? On the other hand, it is beautifully shot and to see someone work in the natural environment with natural materials is always a joy for me. You decide for yourself.

Chuck Jones

From the same guy that made the film about Vancouver I posted about last month, comes this tribute to a childhood icon of mine. Chuck Jones, one of the all-time masters of visual comedy, was responsible for the Looney Tunes cartoons by Warner Brothers. Seeing for the first time the genius behind these short masterpieces, makes me appreciate them all the more.

The "time slice" or "bullet time" photography technique that was first used to great effect in The Matrix is still very cool. However, like anything else it is even cooler once you add fire. Using 48 dSLR's, two high-speed cameras and a couple of fire-breathers, this looks awesome. Remember, no CGI is used here.
