Guys! It’s Friday!

And where I live: it’s finally warming up.

You know what that means: Video time!

Kyoto Tachibana High School Band Club Otosuji Shopping Street Parade

At 27 minutes, it’s a little longer than most, but I guarantee you will be entertained. Some excellent musicianship, and a ridiculous array of marching choreography.

Inside Game of Thrones: A Story in Stunts

“Stunt Coordinator Rowley Irlam describes the work that goes into creating a ‘dynamic frame of action’ for every epic moment in the series.”

Holy crap no kidding. We take the CGI for granted so much that it’s easy to forget real live human beings are moving heaven and earth to perform these crazy stunts.

New season drops April 14th.

Where Hollywood Shoots All Its Plane Scenes

“Many of the most iconic plane and airport scenes were filmed in the same place — Air Hollywood, the LA production studio entirely dedicated to aviation.”

It’s more than just the plane interiors too (of which, of course, they have several.) They do departure lounges, luggage pick-up staging, gates, etc.

I never thought about any of this. What an interesting thing to be the best at.

The Best Baguette in Paris

“Each morning, under cover of darkness, Mahmoud M’seddi makes a special delivery to a distinguished Parisian address. As the 2018 winner of an elite competition to determine the city’s best baguette, he has the honor of baking fresh bread for President Emmanuel Macron.”

I make a lot of bread, and I approve this message.

Bonus Video!

Police Logs of Port Townsend

“Actual Police reports taken from Port Townsend and Jefferson County. Read by local residents. Animation by Michael McCurdy.”

These are gold.

There you go! Alllll video’d up!

Have a great weekend everybody, and Happy Spring!
