Prelude to Axanar:

Wow!! Very cool. Too bad Paramount decided to get their feathers in a huff about it. In a perfect world, Paramount would hire them to make the film, as the crew who put this together obviously show the talent required.

Prelude to Axanar received $ 101,000 in a successful Kickstarter campaign and the finished film helped the Axanar team raise $ 638,000 in their second Kickstarter for the upcoming feature film.

There's a lot of videos out there about size of the universe etc, but I really enjoyed this one.
You know, the usual: full screen, dark room, loud volume recommended



Star Size Comparison 2

could also have gone in the 'interesting thread', or the music thread (Alpha by Vangelis)

Forgot to mention my source, What if the Earth were a middle-aged adult and other comparisons which is worth a read :up: (may even have gotten the link here somewhere?)

Pretty cool, but it kind of lost me near the end when it visualized the entire universe as a sphere, and then other universes ("the multiverse") as other spheres.

Plz go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuhrD8eNi-0
This is a Vietnamese vid, in which the little rat is 'rocking out' to the music. IOW, the music was not added afterward to the recording, but is part of the original video sound track, and the rat can hear it and is 'boogieing out' to the 'hip hop' as good as any human preadolescent child.
Either that, or it is a very clever fake-out, as betrayed by the distinct absence of any extraneous background sounds.  8)
edit-- Come to think of it, I wonder if the poor little guy is suffering from some sort of neurological disorder. The vid was originally posted 03-30-11, so according to this duckduckgo query, he's probably died of old age by now; so I'm obliged to finis my post with something sentimental, like "Fly high, little guy."
edit- Here's the way cool lyrics to the song track...what the heck, here's the actual lyrics.....
Trouble will find you no mater where you go, oh oh
No Matter if you're fast no matter if you're slow, oh oh
The eye of the storm and the cry in the morn, oh oh
Your fine for a while but then start to loose control
He's there in the dark
He's there in my heart
He waits in the winds
He's gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend
Yeah trouble is a friend of mine. oh oh

Trouble is a friend but trouble is a foe, oh oh
And no matter what I feed him he always seems to grow, oh oh
He sees what I see and he knows what I know, oh oh
So don't forget as you ease on down the road

So don't be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won't let him win, but I'm a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend
Yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

Today I came across this documentary style post mortem for Ludum Dare 37. The production values are fantastic, and I thought it was generally well done and humorous, too. :Thmbsup:
