We’re anxiously awaiting the public release of This Way Up, a creepy Tim Burton-esque short about two undertakers. It’s currently making the rounds on the film festival circuit.
Above: Designer toy store Rotofugi does a great job turning the tables on toy collectors with this funky commercial. Bearbrick, Gloomy Bear and Wee Ninjas all make cameos: Ninja, please!
Julien Bocabeille’s Oktapodi is like Ratatouille for octopuses. The quality is on par with stuff you’d see from Pixar, which is fitting considering Julien now works for Dreamworks.
It’s no secret that Darth Vader is a disciple of the Dark Side, but sometimes he just likes being a prick. The funny video above shows the wonders of creative post production.
Shakerboys is a hypnotic video by West London based artists Viewmanoid that makes you want to take the day off and chill; it’d be perfect as an iTunes Visualizer plugin.
Every Easter Sunday Eve, two rival churches in Vrondados, Greece engage in a “rocket war” with the aim to hit the other’s belltower; they use up to 80,000 fireworks in the display.
You don’t need to understand German to appreciate these Star Trek commercials. They’re made for the German Sci Fi Channel and are pretty darn funny; oh Spock, you rock.
The crazy guys at EepyBird are most well known for their Mentos + Diet Coke experiment. Their latest video is called Extreme Sticky Notes: think slinkies. Lots of slinkies.
Cliff Kushler, who brought you the famous T9 text entry system, is now working on Swype. It’s an amazingly fast and intuitive way to type; the video above will knock your socks off.
Coming 1Q 2009, Plain Sight starts innocently enough with a cute robot gallivanting around a Tron-esque cityscape. That is, until he takes out a sword and starts kicking robot ass.
The movie above was filmed at NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory at Berkeley; Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt have turned magnetism into a visual and auditory feast for the eyes.
It hasn’t been officially announced, but this Space Marine trailer is going to make a lot of Warhammer 40000 fans happy. Forget RTS games: in-your-face Ork slaughter, all the way!
Mad props to Vincent Chai: World War is a robot short film and the degree project for this University of Hertfordshire student. It was done in 8 months using Photoshop and Maya.
Kevin Rose confirms it: iTunes 8.0 will indeed by including Flight 404’s gorgeous Magnetosphere visualizer plugin. If you haven’t seen it before, you owe it to yourself to click above.
There’s a classic fourth wall moment in Gremlins 2 where they break into the movie theater; the fan-made video above has them breaking into your DVR. PS: Making of video, here.
We have mixed feelings for the chatty Killzone 2 video above; it’s trying to sell the multiplayer aspects of the game, but the absence of foul-mouthed 14 year olds is deafening.
Above is a fantastic skateboarding video shot with a Red One Camera; it’s cheaper than professional cameras but will still set you back $17.5k for the body alone.
Jake von Slatt is one of the better-known steampunk artists; above, Wired interviews him. Datamancer has actually taken von Slatt’s idea and sells Mac and PC steampunk keyboards.
If the idea of a race between a Dodge Viper ACR and a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 doesn’t excite you, consider the venue: it’s taking place at Germany’s famous Nurbrugring.
Clint Hawking, Far Cry 2 Creative Director, talks shop (above) about immersion. We like the idea: little details like getting into and out of vehicles help to boost realism.
We’ve been having a bit too much fun with light painting lately, but we can’t help it: this trippy stop-motion 4th of July video by Jon Thomas is perfectly set to MGMT’s “Kids”.
No surprises here: this video from the set of Transformers 2 shows more gun-toting, tire-squealin’ totally exploderific action. That, and Michael Bay showing off his custom Nikes.
This summer’s animated Star Wars: Clone Wars movie didn’t meet expectations; however, the boob tube may be more suitable. The TV series airs 10/3 on the Cartoon Network.
Not that Japan doesn’t have enough monsters, but the Water Dragon hologram above was filmed in Tokyo Bay. It’s actually part of a Sony ad campaign for The Water Horse movie.
Armored Core: For Answer is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on 9/16. The mecha combat simulator will feature larger maps, more detailed damage and multiplayer co-op.
Art director and 3D animator Emmett Feldman’s Interstellar Sugar is fantastic in monochrome; the visual style seems perfect for a remake of the classic shooter Asteroids.
