Model Trains

This is a rather nice film that shows the tremendous detail put in to a HO (similar to OO in this country) model railway by the film-maker's father. A true labour of love.

Impossible Dovetail

Every aspect of this video pleases me greatly. The puzzle itself although not too taxing on the brain, is elegant. The metal, colour and finish of the hardware is beautiful and the manufacturing process soothes me. I hope you're as weird as me. :-)

Wolf In Ink

Watch as a wolf is painted in the winter moonlight, using India ink and water colour. The skill of painting first in plain water and then building up the ink is astonishing.

El Toh

Spelunking is not normally classed as a relaxing activity, but this film of divers exploring "El Toh" in Yucatan, Mexico, is almost hypnotic.

Approaching The Unknown

Mark Elijah Rosenberg's film about an astronaut whose Mars journey does not go according to plan, combines old school non-CGI special effect techniques with new-fangled equipment to create a completely unique and hyper-realistic "space" atmosphere. The Creators Project goes behind the scenes to discover how Rosenberg, with the help of legendary special effects specialist master Doug Trumball were able to create physical models to appear realistic on modern cameras and like the film's protagonist, conquer the unknown through daring action.
