…World Builder is a post production masterpiece?

World Builder

Bruce Branit, who was the co-creator of ‘405’, shot World Builder in a single day, and then worked on the post production for roughly 2 years before calling it a finished product.

Talk about dedication!

The result is well worth the effort however, as it’s a beautiful tale of a strange man who builds a world using holographic tools for the woman he loves.

…The Sopranos had dirty mouths?

Here’s an interesting project: Victor Solomon took every single episode of The Sopranos, stripped out everything but the swear words, and stitched the rest back together into a 27 minute long montage of the show, done in chronological order, that definitely lives up to its uncensored title:

Just never say the man doesn’t have dedication!

(Also be sure to check out his other rather interesting project called mirrorface:)

…Halo corpses can spell?

Halo Corpse Alphabet

It takes dedication to make an entire alphabet out of Halo corpses, but takes a little bit of crazy to then add in numbers, and even a few punctuation marks.

The original goal of the Halo Corpse Alphabet (a self-described macabre project) was to represent every letter of the alphabet with the twisted, curved, stretched, and otherwise dead Spartan and Elite bodies from Halo 3.

Apparently the Halo community was more than willing to take on this task, as they quickly jumped on board and cranked out letter after letter for the amusement of all.

…Scott Weaver knows dedication?

Over the course of 35 years (Scott estimates more than 3,000 hours of labor), he has assembled more than 100,000 toothpicks into a 9’ tall sculpture of San Francisco that includes such favorites as the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Humphrey the humpback whale, the Ferry Building, and a full tour that he can send ping pong balls through on their way down the city.

Called “Rolling Through the Bay”, it won Best of Show at the Sonoma County Fair, and for good reason.

Check out the video for a little glimpse of what it takes to create such a mad machine:

…Guinness is great for dominoes?

Guinness

Guinness harnessed the power of the Rube Goldberg style dominoes chain for their latest commercial, and the results are rather impressive.

It apparently took an entire week to film, with some sequences requiring up to 15 reshoots, so I can only imagine the dedication that these dominoes builders displayed. I’d say it was worth it though:
