…Eric Solheim captured One Year in 40 Seconds?

Four Seasons

Eric Solheim snapped images and captured audio from the same spot outside of his house for an entire year, and then stitched them together into a fantastic time-lapse video called One Year In 40 Seconds:

In addition to the video, Eric also documented his entire process, including the story, the camera, the settings, the software, the techniques and more, and posted it all on his blog, along with every source file that he created under a creative commons license so that you can take his work and experiment with it as well to see what you can come up with.

…Choke looks good?

Choke

Batman might be dominating the movie news right now, and though I’m excited to see it, I think I’m looking forward to Choke even more than the man in black.

Chuck Palahniuk is by far my favorite author, and his book to movie transition has proven itself in the past (Fight Club, anyone?) so I can’t imagine Choke is going to be any different.

Lest I ruin the story, I don’t want to dive too deep into the plot line (though I will say that the book was fantastic), but just make sure you keep this one on your radar, because you don’t want to miss a movie like this.

…The Fail Whale has a story to tell?

Fail Whale

How did Yiying Lu’s “Fail Whale” go from an unfortunate placeholder to an entire social media brand?

As with most things on the Internet, it was a little bit of skill mixed with a whole lot of luck, and some randomness thrown in for good measure.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Fail Whale phenomenon, or if you’d like to know a little more about the behemoth beast, then check out ReadWriteWeb’s “The Story of the Fail Whale” and see what you’ve been missing.
