Hey welcome back to Friday, in participating stores now!

I mean: it’s here! For free. Never mind.

And look! Videos! Heeeeere we go…

How 3D Printing Is Revolutionizing Stop Motion Animation

[Sort of self-explanatory]

This covers a lot of ground, but culminates with the hotly-recommended “Kubo and the Two Strings”. (I still haven’t seen it yet.)

Very creative work. Mind-blowing.

Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Hey: speaking of animation and the like…

We are nearing Oscar nomination season, so the VFX reels are sure to follow.

ILM remains legendary. Some great, great work here.

Young Frankenstein (Modern Trailer)

Re-cut to be more dramatic and poignant.

Also R.I.P. Gene Wilder (naturally.)

The creator of this also made a video describing the editing process, which is worth a look as well.

2016 Burning Man Hyperlapse

[self explanatory]

I am awed by the amount of effort that goes into some of the works every year at this festival. I don’t think I’ll get the chance to see it live so these videos make a good (if tiny) substitute.

Beautiful. Inspiring.

Bonus Video!

The Longest Way 1.0 – walk through China and grow a beard! – a photo every day timelapse

Hey, speaking of inspiring… ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is a crazy journey, and the video maybe requires more than one viewing to catch the subtitles of where he went, etc.

This concludes today’s batch of Friday Videos!

As you were…

Have a great Friday.
