japanese school girl chase #ninja
“Two everyday Japanese High School students end up having a chase of epic proportions through the streets of Atami.

The events depicted in this movie were performed by professional stunt people and enhanced with special effects. Please don’t try this at home.”
Holy cow! Amazing…

“The Action starts when Ollie, a skateboard, takes his friend Didga, a CAT, for a ride around the beautiful beach town of Coolangatta, Australia. On the way Didga ‘shows off’ by jumping on, off, up and even over obstacles.”
Adorable.

Hey Friday! We goin’ out tonight or what?

[Distant yelling]

Okay!

Here are some videos while we get set…

» Delivery

Delivery
“Bill’s fifty-two years old, has a mountain man beard, and delivers pizza on a fixie in Brooklyn. Over the course of several shifts, DELIVERY unveils an intriguing man rushing food to your door while it’s still hot and fresh.”
Stuff like this is a big reason I love Vimeo.

» Urban Giants

Urban Giants
“Between 1928 and 1932, Western Union and AT&T Long Lines built two of the most advanced telecommunications buildings in the world, at 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas in Lower Manhattan. Nearly a century later, they remain among the world’s finest Art Deco towers and cornerstones of global communication.”
A great little short documentary.

» What if Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash?

What if Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash?
“For a movie about the fastest man alive, the obvious choice to direct would be the filmmaker behind such classics as THE SEVENTH SEAL, WILD STRAWBERRIES, and SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE.”
Funny / accurate (?)

» The ’90s Alt-Rock Vocal Hook Supercut

The '90s Alt-Rock Vocal Hook Supercut
“The doot-doot-doos, whoa-ohs, na-na-nas, and ooh-oohs that defined a decade.”
Note: a definite Canadian bent to this one. Still fun.

“Jack Bauer knows how to get answers. Repetition.”

POINT BREAK Remake (Terrence Malick, Michael Bay, Lars Von Trier)
Point Break as directed by Lars Von Trier.
You’re welcome. (I think…)

» The Gunfighter

The Gunfighter
“Just another period western meta comedy short film.”
This is making the rounds, but it’s still quite good. (And a little NSFW, just to be warned.)
Sent in by Heather D.

» Verschleif

Verschleif
“With an edge sander, half a millimeter is sanded off each work piece (wood, walnut, transformer, skull or analogue camera) and photographed. About 650 photos are made into a short film, which contrasts the inner structure of nature and technology.”
Some of this looks like an MRI scan, only in full-fidelity color. Amazing.

» The Art of Stevedore

The Art of Stevedore
“Over the past seven months I’ve had the opportunity to film the 24/7 operations at the Port of Long Beach, the second-busiest container port in the United States.”
Somewhat mesmerizing.

» This is how we move

This is how we move
“Human helps people move almost twice as much in six weeks. Every day, people track millions of activities with our app. We visualized data in major cities all across the globe to get an insight into Human activity. Walking, running, cycling and motorized transportation data tell us different stories.”
Their website is also worth a look.

Have a lovely Friday everybody.

Hyundai - The Empty Car Convoy
“Hyundai wanted to demonstrate its driver assist features like its Smart Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Auto Emergency Braking. So it put together a convoy of empty cars…”
After the announcement of Google’s 100% self-driving car tests by consumers a few weeks back, now Hyundai is getting in on the act.
This is such an interesting decade…

» One Woman, 17 British Accents – Anglophenia Ep 5

One Woman, 17 British Accents - Anglophenia Ep 5
“Siobhan Thompson performs a tour of the accents of the British Isles – and the celebrities who speak with them!”
This is making the rounds, but it’s a good one.

» 29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song – Rob Cantor

29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song - Rob Cantor
“‘Perfect’ is from my new album, NOT A TRAMPOLINE. You can listen to the studio version here.”

ROGAN AND GOLDBERG COMMENTATE EA UFC GLITCHES!!!
