Immer am Wochenende (Bleiben wir realistisch: soweit möglich.) gibt es hier einen Sammelpost mit allem, was es nicht zu einem eigenen Artikel gebracht hat. Das ist mal mehr, mal weniger. Mal gucken, wie’s klappt.
Nicht viele Leute sind so entspannt wie Lexi Belle, die von Berufs wegen vielleicht eine gewisse Gelassenheit mitbringt. Aber es täte ihnen gut, denn wie sie schon sagt: Wir haben bald 2018.
This is a personal project that I worked on with my brother. I enjoyed watching a little bit of Death Star assembly in Rogue One, but I wanted to see more. I came up with a very simple method of revealing geometry with Lightwave’s instancing tool, and then started building the underlying parts of the fully armed and operational battlestation. Since there was a lot of procedural animation, I was seeing a lot of interesting shapes appear that I hadn’t planned, but the thing that really pulls it together is the new score by Ben Botkin.
This inspiring documentary follows the heroic efforts of the Rescate Ambar volunteer Paramedics, a group that sacrifices sleep and safety to provide medical attention to the thousands of motor vehicle accidents that plague the Dominican Republic. Filmmaker Mark Bone embedded himself with the team for an honest look at people who face life and death every day.
In Catalonia’s nativity scenes, right next to baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, an extraordinary (defecatory) figure graces the manger. With his pants around his ankles, the tiny figurine can be found squatting and … well … pooping. Legend has it that in the 18th century, farmers defecated onto their land in order to fertilize the soil. Today, the tradition lives on in the form of the figurines, known as “caganers.” If you’re looking to add a pooping man to your own holiday celebrations, brothers Sergi and Marc Alos are your guys. They’ve made a booming business across Catalonia keeping the centuries old tradition alive.

The Lofoten Islands in Norway definitely blew my mind! All the mountains combined with the sea and the fjords build a very unique and beatiful landscape. For two weeks we lived in the nature of norway and had one of the best times of our life!
