Hullo Friday people!

Here we are again! And it’s video time.

Let’s goooooowuh!

When the Giant Cruise Ships Came to Town

“In Odveig Klyve’s ‘View,’ a quiet Norwegian coastal city is invaded by some oppressively large visitors.”

We’re basically watching a small city pull into view of a tiny village.

Pass The Ball

“3 second animation of a ball. Pass it to someone in another country They pick up where you left off.”

“40 animators 40 months in the making…”

Very cleverly achieved. Also: what a wide range of stylistic choices.

A VERY ZOMBIE HOLIDAY (Instructional video)

“An instructional video for ensuring a happy home during this zombie-infested holiday season.”

An oddly conceived video. I like it!

The Nomad’s Ger

“The nomadic people of Mongolia don’t stay in one place for long. That’s why they live in gers (which American’s know by the Russian name, yurt), a home that is fast and easy to assemble and disassemble.”

Time compressed down to two minutes. Kind of amazing.

These have been your Friday Videos. I’m your host, Adam D.

Have a great weekend everybody.

Happy Friday!

Here we are again! Yaaaaay.

I hope you’re all doing well.

Gordon Ramsay goes HEAVY METAL!

Despite being funny, this kind of exercise is extremely challenging to do well.

This is YouTuber and metal guitarist Andre Antunes.

Making the rounds. Well done.

MINIATURE CALENDAR by Tatsuya Tanaka

“Everyone must have had thoughts like these before:

“Broccoli and parsley may sometimes look like a forest of trees, and tree leaves floating on the surface of water may sometimes look like little boats. Everyday occurrences seen from a miniature perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts.”

His Instagram is a must-see. The way he transforms everyday objects into tiny-people infrastructure is fascinating.

Virtual Ancient Rome in 3D – Aerial view, 8 minute flight over the detailed reconstruction

As it would have appeared in the year 4AD, when Caesar Augustus was the emperor.

More detailed than I was expecting. Well done.

Black Listing with Emily V. Gordon and Gloria Calderón Kellett

In this episode, they compare their favourite 80’s movie dance scenes.

Just a fun little segment.

Suggested by Traci T.

And there we go! Friday! And Videos! Together again!

Have a lovely weekend everybody. See you next week.

New Year New You

From the delightful CommunityChannel.

A little dark but funny.

Internet Cruise (1995)

Ahhhh the early internet of 1995…

Our Universe is SO big, it’s mindblowing! | BBC

“Professor Brian Cox takes us on a journey from a small picnic on Earth… to the deepest depths of space over ten billion light years away”

And just wait until we see some images from the James Webb Space Telescope.

Experiment at -196°C, Quantum Levitation | Magnetic Games

“With the use of liquid nitrogen, the YBCO compound can be cooled until it becomes a superconductor, and a superconductor placed in a magnetic field has amazing behaviors.”

The closed captioning provides details about this unique experiment.

And of course: DO NOT try this at home!

And there we go! First Friday Videos of 2022.

Have a great Friday, and see you next week.
