Wenn Astronauten „Gravity“ auf der Internationalen Raumstation schauen


Die Internationale Raumstation hat einen neuen HD Projektor, den die Crew gleich mal gebührend eingeweiht hat. Gravity an Bord der ISS zu schauen ist schon ziemlich meta, wenn jetzt noch Trekkie Samantha Cristoforetti einen „Star Trek: Voyager Serien-Marathon“ veranstaltet…

Ende Mai soll der per via Kickstarter finanzierte 80er-Retro-Action-Trash-Cop-Film „Kung Fury“ veröffentlicht werden. Statt einem weiteren Trailer haben die Macher jetzt The Hoff den Theme Song performen lassen – ziemlich epischer Appetizer! Wer von dem Streifen noch nichts gehört hat, hier noch mal Trailer und Synopsis:

YouTube: Kung Fury – Official Trailer

KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.

Kung Fury takes place in a variety of exotic locations; 1980s Miami, Asgard and Germany in the 1940s, to name a few. With a limited budget to work with, we had to solve this by shooting most of the scenes against a greenscreen backdrop.

Kung Fury was funded mainly through a Kickstarter campaign, where people from all around the world showed their support for this crazy project. David worked on the film for a more than a year with almost no budget but a strong vision, with the help of friends and family. Most of the film has already been shot, but additional filming and lots of visual effects remain to be done.

The film will be around 30 minutes long and released for free on the internet.

VHS-Cover für Serien und Filme von heute


Die VHS-Cover sind zwar von einem Aprilscherz (Pariser Clique kopiert für Homevideo-Partys heutige Serien und Filme auf VHS), gefallen mir als ehemaliger Videotheken-Junkie aber auch ohne die Fake-Story ziemlich gut. Die Cover in groß weiter unten und bei Golem13 gibts noch mehr Fotos inklusive VCR und Röhren-TV…

„2001 : A Remix“ von Eclectic Method

YouTube: 2001 : A Remix | (via @EclecticMethod)

Der Kubrick-Klassiker 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum von Eclectic Method zu einer Electro-Version von „Also Sprach Zarathustra“ remixt.

It’s taken me till 2014 to remix 2001, but with the film relaunching in British cinemas, I thought now would be a great time to do it. This mix contains almost every scientific prediction in the film mixed with the space age synth sounds that were just around the corner. Much that Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke predicted has come to pass – touch screen portable computers, video phones, Space Stations, in-seat video entertainment, computers beating humans at chess. So far though, Siri hasn’t switched off anybody’s life support.

The original had minimal dialogue, communicating through moving images. The monolith was built on a 1 : 4 : 9 ratio (the squares of the first three integers), the same ratio as a cinema screen on its side. When the humans/monkeys see the monolith it enlightens them, when the screen goes black, you, the viewer, are now looking at the monolith on it’s side enlightening you. Whether true or not, Kubrick hid many many objects with this ratio throughout the film. The whole film is built on an electro-version of the legendary “Also Sprach Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss.
