I can’t believe it’s the last Friday in April! But that should mean that each new Friday will be warmer (right?)

Meantime! Videos!!

» 2008 Cherry Blossom Time-lapse at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

2008 Cherry Blossom Time-lapse at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
“This time-lapse was created by Dave Allen, BBG’s Web Manager, from over 3,000 digital photos, one taken every 3 minutes from April 18 to April 26, 2008, of Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s famed Cherry Walk.”


I am loving that drone photography is a thing. Beautifully shot.

» The Roentgens’ Berlin Secretary Cabinet

The Roentgens' Berlin Secretary Cabinet
“Discover the hidden features and intricate interior of this cabinet. One of the finest achievements of European furniture making, this cabinet is the most important product from Abraham (1711–1793) and David Roentgen’s (1743–1807) workshop.”
Wwwwwow. I’ll take… two?
One of the most complex creations I’ve ever seen.
Suggested by David P.

Bonus Video:

» Birds

“A lighthearted essay on contextualized characters.”
More like: a bizarre but wonderfully executed 3d model of birds expressed as any material except birds.

Happy Friday everybody.

Frriiiiiiday has arrived!

Quick! Set the table!

While that happens: here are some videos…

» Portrait of Lotte – 0 to 14 years in 4 min. (The Original)

Portrait of Lotte - 0 to 14 years in 4 min. (The Original)
“This new Time-Lapse shows Lotte changing from baby to 14 years in 4 min.”
And it’s still a work in progress. 🙂


“She’s young, dreamy and fearless, she drives cars way too fast, she’s also a yamakasi. She likes adventure, fireworks and unrelenting seas. From the day I conceived her, I’ve been a worried father. And a proud one too.”
Really expertly done.

» Lindzee – Amelymeloptical illusion

Lindzee - Amelymeloptical illusion
Just fyi the word “Amelymeloptical” is not a real word. But this is a mesmerizing video that has been making the rounds. Very well done.

“For this project we wanted to explore and combine 3d animation, 3D printing with stop frame animation.”
They certainly make it look easy. Very cool.
I also couldn’t take my eyes of the paws during the animation. Minor detail.

» Realistic Mario: Brick Block

Realistic Mario: Brick Block
“Mario and Luigi face the reality of hitting bricks with their heads.”
This is a promo for the Pete Holmes show. And I lol’d. A lot.

Happy Friday everybody, and happy (possibly) long weekend.

GAME OF GOATS (Game of Thrones Goat Version)
This is the most insane thing I have seen so far this year. Hilarious.
Suggested by Alex S. and Sondra M.

» Richard Hickey – Francis

Richard Hickey - Francis
“The story of ‘Francis’ came about interestingly from famed radio show ‘This American Life’. Broadcaster Ira Glass asked 6 American writers to create a short story about Adventure. One ofthese stories written by novelist & screenwriter Dave Eggers, it was read on the show to much acclaim and praise.”

» Dinner Is Served slow-motion

Dinner Is Served slow-motion
“Shot on the Red Epic X at 2K. 248 FPS”
What an odd little film…

Cleverly executed.

This is really well executed.

» Slow Life

Slow Life
“Slow” marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.”

» Final Four Trick Shots | Dude Perfect

Final Four Trick Shots | Dude Perfect
“Final Four Trick Shots… to take your mind off your busted bracket.”
Some of these are ridiculous!

Happy Friday everybody!
