…It’s Website Wednesday: Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York?

Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York

PixelCase’s Aerial Virtual Tour of New York is an amazing look at the Big Apple from above thanks to the combined photography of Oleg Gaponyuk and Andrei Zubets.

Once inside the panorama you can look around and zoom in and out, and when viewed in fullscreen, it reminds me a lot of the intro scene from The Dark Knight that was shot in IMAX, including the slight knot you’ll get in your stomach if you’re at all afraid of heights.

…It’s Movie Monday: Mankind Is No Island?

Mankind Is No Island

Tropfest is the world’s largest short film festival.

Founded at Sydney’s Tropicana café in 1993, it now has an attendance of over 150,000 in Australia each February, and thousands more in other cities through out the world at other local Tropfests.

This year, the $20,000 first prize at the Tropfest in New York went to a film called “Mankind Is No Island” which was shot entirely with a cell phone camera.

The music is perfect, the effect is simple yet powerful, and the end result is a very emotional film that challenges the way we look at the world.
