Obi-Wan vs. Darth Vader Reimagined for Fan Film

Vor vierzig Jahren hatte George Lucas die Vision, dass Lichtschwertkämpfe wie Duelle der Samurai aussehen sollen. Dazu ordnete Lucas die Schauspieler an, die Lichtschwerter mit beiden Händen zu führen, da es sich um schwere Waffen handeln würde. Mark Hamill fand dies immer schade, ganz besonders weil Lucas zu Zeiten der Prequel-Drehs seine Meinung plötzlich geändert hatte. Die neuen Filme unter Disneys Führung setzen eher auf die Emotionalität der Figuren und die Wucht der Schwerter.

Dieser virale Teaser zu einem 2018 erscheinenden Kurzfilm findet irgendwo den Mittelweg und kann den Kampf zwischen Obi-Wan und Vader aus Episode IV sanft updaten ohne unglaubwürdig zu werden. Ich bin gespannt auf das fertige Produkt.

This is a small teaser for a reimagining of the Vader vs Kenobi fight from A New Hope that I am VFX Supervising. More to come soon! Full scene coming in 2018.

Totenasche als Platte pressen lassen

Totenasche als Platte pressen lassen totenasche-in-vinyl-pressen-lassen

Wer eine etwas klassischere Form der Verwendung für die Asche seiner Liebsten (oder der eigenen) als die Befüllung eines Dildos haben möchte, kann sie ja bei der Pressung von Vinylplatten beimischen lassen. Das sorgt für ein ganz und gar einzigartiges Knistern während des Abspielens, als würde der Verstorbene mithören. Irgendwie ein schöner Gedanke.

„When it first made headlines in 2010, Jason Leach’s UK-based company And Vinyly – which presses the ashes of the deceased into vinyl records for loved ones wishing to hold onto their memory – appeared to be something of a macabre novelty. But there might be more to preserving the departed (quite literally) on records than first meets the eye – and ear. Hearing Madge explores how Leach’s venture was given new meaning when he was approached by a man looking to save his mother’s recollections that he had recorded shortly before her death. Surprisingly touching, Andrea Lewis’s short documentary is both a profile of an unusual business and a thought-provoking contemplation of the ways we chose to remember the dead.“

New Reports Indicate UK Might Be Getting Its First Sex Robot Brothel

New reports suggest that the UK might be getting its first sex robot brothel.

Well well, would you look at that? What a time to be alive huh? Honestly, surprised it took this long for headlines involving sex robot brothels to jump across our news feeds, but here we are. The Spanish company (sex robot brothel) in question, LumiDolls was recently quoted saying they’re eagerly trying to expand their operations over to the UK soon as they can lock down an investor. The spokesperson for LumiDoll went on to say, “With LumiDolls, customers can perform any of their sexual fantasies they do not dare to do with a woman. This allows them to fulfill their wildest fantasies that maybe with other people they can not, maybe they have some physical complex that does not allow them to be comfortable with a person, and with a doll it makes them much easier.

Woman Receives Dick Pic From a Stranger and Decides to Respond With a Dick Pic of Her Own

wtf,FAIL,dating

This woman proves that she is not one to be trifled with after being harassed by a stranger who insisted on sending her unsolicited pictures of his penis. Well, she gets fed up and responds with a dick pic of her own.

From her original post:

“I don’t know him, we have no mutual friends. This was the first time I responded. Then he tried to Facebook call me! Ummm no dude.”

“I did it because it was making both my husband and I laugh and I was surprised that the guy kept going.”

WTF?!-Computerdemo: Hello, Kevin – A Dental Journey

WTF?!-Computerdemo: Hello, Kevin - A Dental Journey hello-kevin-a-dental-journey

Grafik- oder Tech-Demos sind zwar immer mal nett anzuschauen, kommen aber meist mit wenig Unterhaltungscharakter daher. Ganz anders bei „Hello, Kevin – A Dental Journey“ von den SpacePigs. Die kurzfilmartige Computer-Demo kommt mit starker Weirdness daher und mag durchaus für den einen oder anderen Albtraum sorgen. Vor allem aber für hochsteigende Mundwinkel. Und Zähne?! Hat jedenfalls den zweiten Rang beim Revision Contest 2017 in Saarbrücken gemacht.

platform : Windows
type : demo
release date : april 2017
