The original Godzilla posters by the awesome, and influential, Japanese designer Noriyoshi Ohrai.

It’s almost unfair how wicked these posters make the films look, cos the real Godzilla was never going to live up to it:

Asphyxia is an experimental film project by Maria Takeuchi and Frederico that uses XBox Kinect sensors to capture the movements of dancer Shiho Tanaka and then render the data inside a near photo-realistic environment:

Simple, stupid, funny. I love this Virgin ad:

I love the amount of, well, character that Kazakh illustrator Nurzhan Bekkaliev packs into his character designs:

Director Ruairi Robinson (who won an Oscar for his animated short Blinky) has teamed up with Jim Uhls (the screenwriter of Fight Club) to create this pitch/proof of concept short film titled The Leviathan.

In the future, faster-than-light travel has been discovered, but the fuel for it comes from hunting vast aliens that swim through the upper atmosphere of gas giants.

I’m a big fan of the Alien school of industrial sci-fi, where the technology looks like it belongs more in an oil rig than an Apple store. And Ruairi Robinson and his team obviously have a strong SFX game, as this looks fantastically realistic and thought out.

I’d love seeing what they could make of this if a studio picked it up:

[UPDATE: It’s now been picked up. Sweet]


Swiss magazine and advertising photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger have a cool side project – recreating iconic photos by building incredibly intricate scale models.

“It started out as a joke,” Cortis says. “In our free time, when there’s no money coming in, we decided to try to recreate the most expensive pictures in the world.”

They’ve got a real touch for recreating explosions in miniature:
