Erol Alkan – “A Hold on Love” (Official Music Video)

The video for Erol Alkan’s track ‘A Hold on Love’ is wonderful. Looks like it was all shot in and around Kendal in Cumbria.

Impressive projection mapping onto moving surfaces controlled by robot arms. Go full screen / 1080p etc.

Here’s the making-of video. Almost inevitably, gmunk was involved in producing it. Thanks to @alexgemmell for the link, which I obviously missed first time around.

Making the Invisible Visible

March 19th, 2013

The ISS Image Frontier – “Making the invisible visible” from Christoph Malin on Vimeo.

I know it’s been a bit ISS Overload recently – especially now that Earth’s newfound hero Commander Hadfield is up there in charge (you are following him on Twitter, I hope) and sending frequent updates and photos – but this video is worth a post because it contains some stunning high quality time-lapses put together by NASA Astronaut Dr. Don Pettit, to whom it is actually a tribute.

As usual, full screen + HD is recommended, obviously.

Solar flare HD video footage

February 22nd, 2013

This is pretty spectacular. Actual video footage of a solar flare erupting on the surface of the sun. Turn the res up to 720p or higher on full screen.

I’m not a huge fan of Gervais – and in places he’s merely quoting Dawkins back to himself – but I’m with them both on the whole “G” issue.
