Hey kids!

Video time!!

» The Himalayas from 20,000 ft.

The Himalayas from 20,000 ft.

“Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.”
This is making the rounds and it’s breathtaking.

Hawk Cam Captures the Hunt | ScienceTake | The New York Times

“Thanks to a helmet camera, researchers discovered that a goshawk mixes its methods of chasing its prey.”
This is amazing footage. Much like this video of an eagle performing a pinpoint landing in Paris from last summer.
Fantastic.

The Brain Hack - Short Film

“Two students create a short-cut to induce hallucinogenic visions of God, and find themselves hunted by a deadly religious sect.”
Well made.

ECHOES

“All scenes were filmed by using a Canon 5D and a 100mm macro lens.”
(Which doesn’t really get across what this actually looks like.)
It’s beautiful!

Bonus Video:

» Deskloop by Evelien Lohbeck

Deskloop by Evelien Lohbeck

“Deskloop is a short film presenting a chain reaction that takes place on a desk(top).”
Clever.
