Creativity throughout the web.

May 28, 2010

Here’s a really interesting short film I bumped into while browsing the web that shows just how much great stuff is lurking out there. The imagery is the stuff of scifi dreams and the CGI, while not Avatar, shows a lot of work and craftsmanship. But it’s the simple plot that deals ultimately with humanity and machinery and the possibility of encoding human cognition in a synthetic form that’s really of interest. While it raises more questions than it answers, give it a view and post what you think.

I absolutely don’t encourage you to try this at home unless you want to electrocute, burn, or harm yourself in some other novel way…

….yet this is still pretty cool! I don’t endorse smoking or pyromania though if that’s your thing then have it but this was pretty creative.

Now, for something far less dangerous and a bit more retro, here’s a laser phaser! Beam me up Scotty!

The new Tron Legacy trailer. I need a neon suit!

March 10, 2010

I love Tron. Its color scheme, its imaginative portrayal of the life inside a computer, and its gladiator games! Now, we finally get a new trailer that shows more than the VFX test shown at 2009 ComiCon. All I have to say is… well, I’d have to pick my jaw up off the floor to actually verbalize and even then I don’t know if I could put my racing thoughts into words. Tron is back and in a big way though I have to admit that I am a bit disappointed with the costuming. The original code costume design glowed brilliantly but these have gone for a sleeker, black motorcycle gear with running streaks of neon reminiscent of circuitry. The new light bikes open up a fifty gallon drum of ass whoopage and dumps it all over us. What I worry about is the story and whether Disney will muck up all the works. What I am not worried about is the music. When it kicks in you will feel the force of a dozen teravolts of cool slam your eardrums. Though what else could you expect when Daft Punk is doing to music for the movie? Well, I’ll keep my hopes up and follow this film as it progresses and I’ll have plenty of time to do that since the film comes out in December.

It's so darn bright!

The digital world has digital cows?
It’s certainly stricking.

Update #6: Tron Legacy Viral Marketing Starting Back Up! – ComingSoon.net

This is a really fun and exciting development for people who loved the original Tron. I’m still a little nervous about whether they will totally screw up what could be an awesome experience but if they get it right sci-fi lovers will have reason to rejoice, especially those into the cyberpunk or virtual reality aspect of sci-fi. Come to think of it, there haven’t been enough of those lately. That’s too bad because virtual reality is finally starting to become viable again, especially with the development of augmented reality. More to come on the latter. Until then, enjoy the specualtion and the anticipation of more of the Tron universe.
