Meet Glenda. She’s fortunate enough to be able to check out some of the galaxy’s wonders. Sadly, she’s just like many other tourists. Animator Someone’s Ex says they made this to tide us over until Rick & Morty resumes. It’s got potential. Unless Glenda ruins that too.
Goro Fujita’s “short film” is a looping snapshot of a suburban area. So what makes it so special? It’s entirely in 3D, made for and within virtual reality. Goro spent 80 hours making it in Quill, an illustration app for the Oculus Rift that lets you make both 2D and 3D visual art.
Rind-Raja Picture Company took in the sights of South Africa using DJI’s Mavic Pro drone. Just a few years ago it would’ve been impossible for a single person to take these shots without a helicopter. Technology is awesome. The song is African Skies by Stephen Anderson.
