We got to Earls Court at around 9am on Saturday morning and paid £12 for entry (this was strictly an admission fee, no photo or autograph opportunities/food or drinks included!) and by 11am the queue was truly immense, given that it was blisteringly hot outside, the early birds definitely got the worm!
Happy Friday everyone! Here’s a real interesting music video by Electro artist Yuksek, for his song "Off The Wall",
It's sure to get your toes tapping and your brain wondering at the video which is jam packed full of hand manipulated props, instruments and body parts that are brought together and combined with a mirror image.
For those of you out there who use MARI, some fantastic new additions to its functionality are now available for download and I highly recommend them!
Small Soldiers was, no sorry –IS, in my book anyway - an awesome film, sure I may think that way because I’ve adorned it in a proverbial cloak of nostalgia, but regardless, I am part of a generation that found itself moved and entertained by the ongoing battle between the Gorgonites, led by the valiant Archer, and the antagonist Chip Hazard’s Commando Elite.
I'm not sure if you noticed, but the internet has become quite popular recently. In fact, if you're reading this, chances are you’re on the internet right now, and you might not even know it. Surprise!
Ever rose from your slumber, only to think “you couldn’t pay me to get out of bed right now”?
This film has grabbed our interest this week, mainly because we can’t believe we’ve not seen it yet. The documentary film ‘Men in Suits’ hit screens last year and we hear it's a must see for all special effects fans. One reviewer even suggests that he will revoke your ‘geek license’ if you’ve not taken the time to soak it in.
I think it’s fair to say, when it comes to films- everyone is a fan of behind the scenes photographs, especially when they’re of some of the most iconic movies of all time, AND they show the making of some of the most well-known scenes ever.
The recent release of Fast and Furious 6 sees a refreshing change of setting - to the streets of London, which is fairly apt given that the lasting impression on the audience seems to be the epic VFX scenes, many of which were created right here London at Double Negative.
Doctor Who is a real household name for many people who grew up wanting to understand what VFX were all about, nowadays we consider the 70’s and 80’s visuals rather novelty, but it’s worth considering that a lot of these opinions are derived from unfair context of hindsight.
Being a sports fan, I have been consistently impressed with improvements in viewer experience over the last few years. Technology has improved the situation of the armchair fan tenfold, making the long trip to their ground of choice at the weekend, increasingly less appealing.
