We made it!

And where I live, it’s a long weekend! Huzzah!

Isn’t it about time for the Friday Videos?

Yeah? Yeah! Let’s go!

James Bond Directed By Alfred Hitchcock

This short video basically discusses how the movie “North By Northwest” was a prototypical film for what eventually became the James Bond franchise.

It’s really well done!

Done by Kieron Rose . Based on 1940 bolland model . 3d print . Haunted house

“This has taken me nearly a year to build, all completely from scratch. Everything inside the room is 3d printed (apart from the ceiling light) and much of the mechanism is 3D printed too.”

More info on the original Facebook posting (it was down this week so I set it as the backup link).

niul58: Cat Vibes

The cat doesn’t seem to mind. Pretty well done! Cat choreography is a thing!

This AI Learned Some Crazy Fighting Moves!

Also known as “Neural Animation Layering for Synthesizing Martial Arts Movements”. (Gezundheit!)

The narration is super dry but the concept is definitely interesting. We already consume a huge percentage of CGI content in our film and TV every day, now it’s the next step in terms of fighting style innovation. It’s early days yet, but I do find this interesting.

And there we go – videos!! Done!!

Have a lovely Friday, and enjoy your (long?) weekend!
