Ants In My Scanner!

ANTS in my scanner > a five years time-lapse! from françois vautier on Vimeo.


Run some opening credits over this and it’s an award-winning title sequence. By François Vautier. Now go look at the thing he did with Blade Runner.

Words that move (you)

“Lately I’ve become completely enamored with kinetic typography.”

That’s from Lynn La for an article she wrote at
macworld.com. Kinetic typography is the art of putting words to movement. You’ve seen this in the opening credits of films like North by Northwest. Get moving.


Making music

This is probably the most amazing thing I’ve seen all year. And, yeah, that includes Avatar. Hit play.

You've no doubt seen late-night comics displaying odd local news headlines. If you like the joke (and who doesn't?), get your fix here.

Tapdancing on Roller Skates

We've all had the experience. Work is crazy. Life is crazier. Gene Kelly makes it art.



Sweet fancy Moses.

From Comedy to Horror



This pretty well nails the current shenanigans going on with the Right.

The Object of My Affliction

Apple dropped some new hardware today. In spite of the fact that I’ve got more Macs than I know what to do with... I want. Check it here.

My Guilty Ghostly Pleasure

08
My wife laughs at me for loving this. Ghost Hunters on the Sci Fi Channel. I have absolute, unabashed deep affection for two New England plumbers and their little band of cohorts who travel around the country searching for creepy stuff. Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes are the show’s two leads. They’re accessible, disarming and determined to debunk what they can. But mostly they’re a hoot. With SUVs loaded to the fenders with high-tech gear (and stalked by a run and gun video and sound crew) they roll into some town or city and crash for the night at the local spook spot. Bars, hotels, factories, or families’ homes are their playground. Sometimes they get nothing on tape. Sometimes they get... something. I’m not saying I believe in supernatural jump-up (at least not while my pragmatic psychotherapist wife is watching). But I do believe Grant and Jason have a blast chasing it down. Me too, watching them do it.

Check out the clip below to see some of their “findings.”

Over at The Zicree Simkins Podcast Marc Zicree and I had a great conversation with TV writer/producer Lee Goldberg. Lee tells a great tale of going to Germany to help the TV industry over there get a grip on how to get and keep a growing audience. To get a glimpse of one of Germany’s more intriguing efforts check out the clip below. Ladies and Gents, ALARM FOR COBRA 11.



Hey, I (Re)Wrote a Pilot!

Actually, Brent Mote wrote the pilot. Jane Espenson then tackled the material followed by Rockne O’Bannon. I batted writerly clean-up and produced the pilot with Jace Alexander directing. And now... Hey, We’ve Got a Series!

The Wire - Season 5

“When you walk through the garden you got to watch your back.”

252px-Season02_posterart
If you’re a fan, you know. The Wire is the best show now not on television (unless it’s on your DVD player and right this moment it’s on mine). If you haven’t seen it – or maybe you tried it and gave up – there will come a time when you will become immersed. And you’ll become a zealot. You will gift seasons of The Wire to your family, your friends and to your mailman.
