They make it seem so orderly. It’s kind of hypnotic. I like!

» The Evolution Of Visual Effects

“A [sic] homage to the great moments that changed visual effects: Took a little while to put together but I think its conveys the evolution of visual effects quite well.”
Kind of amazing. I sort of wish it was longer, actually.

Kind of adorable.

» Chess Clock Jenga

Chess Clock Jenga
“We’ve invented a new game: Chess Clock Jenga. It’s… well, it’s Jenga with a chess clock, but you probably worked that out already.”
This is a strangely intense video. Fun!

These are the first Friday Videos in May!

Let’s go!

» Field Notes Brand: The Shelterwood Edition

Field Notes Brand: The Shelterwood Edition
“The making of the innovative Spring 2014 release, shot in Illinois and Wisconsin”
I know some obsessives who love these notebooks. This is for them.

» Wonderful London 1924 & 2014

Wonderful London 1924 & 2014
“In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as ‘Wonderful London’. Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time.”
The effect is actually quite striking. Well done.

» Orson Welles Sketchbook – Episode 1: The Early Days

Orson Welles Sketchbook - Episode 1: The Early Days
“This is the first episode of ‘Orson Welles’ Sketchbook’ in which he discusses his trips abroad and how he came to be an actor. Originally Aired: April 24, 1955.”
This link includes the full list of this series, which is like a video podcast from 1955. These are very interesting if you’re a Welles completist, and especially if (like me) you never knew these even existed before.

» Crocodile Chop

Crocodile Chop
An insane mashup between Elton John and System of a Down. Really expertly done.
Suggested by Simon B. and Stef G.
