‘The Wizard of Speed and Time’ by Mike Jittlov

Every single person in the world needs to see this 1979 short by Mike Jittlov.

Remember there’s no trick printing, no CGI, and no complex mechanical effects. Try and figure out how it’s all done. I’m bamboozled. It you want to see more then the films is on YouTube.

Here’s the trailer:

And this user has uploaded the 10 parts:

Future Photography from the Sci-Fi Airshow

Love this, but especially when the 3D models are in the ‘real world’ environments. The space shots on the site don’t really carry the effect as well. Click the images for a larger view.

Super Mario Bros. from Andreas Heikaus on Vimeo.

Another awesome thesis project.

Blurb: The Super Mario Bros. game, released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, is not longer bound to the television size and get interactive with a new environment. The emphasis of my thesis is on the matchmoving work. It is the process of matching CG elements into live-action footage.

adidas Originals – Star Wars™ Cantina 2010

Sure the link is tenuous between Star Wars and adidas – but it’s nicely done and worth a look. I’ve watched it a few times trying to find to new sequences, effects shots, and joins.

A full list of the stars featuring is listed in the tags for the video:

David Beckham Daft Punk Snoop Dogg Franz Beckenbauer Noel Gallagher Ian Brown Ciara Jay Baruchel DJ Neil Armstrong Obi-Wan Kenobi Han Solo Cantina Greedo C-3PO R2-D2.

Dan Calladine also spotted that adidas are allowed to use the terms ‘FIFA’ and ‘World Cup’, unlike Nike. So overall this must’ve cost them quite a few quid..!!

This is really doing the rounds at the moment, so sorry if this is the 10th time you’ve seen it – but I like it.
