Great practical effects films I'll always applaud the old school effects, if only for the immense work in just getting one ship to light up. Take this shot. It looks pretty straight forwards, ship in front of background moving around. But due to the nature of film is where things get tricky. If you were to just light the ship then shoot it would appear flat with and washed out as every element has different exposure rates. To capture this correctly you have to film multiple passes for each different layer of lighting intensity; one for the windows, the running light, the dish and then the ambient and key lighting.

Novel technique reveals how glaciers sculpted their valleys The beautiful and distinctive U-shaped glacial valleys typical of alpine areas from Alaska to New Zealand have fascinated and frustrated geologists for centuries. While it seems obvious that glaciers scoured the bedrock for millions of years, what the landscape looked like before glaciers appeared, and how the glaciers changed that landscape over time, have remained a mystery. The glaciers erased all the evidence. Now, University of California, Berkeley, and Berkeley Geochronology Center (BGC) scientists have employed a clever technique to reconstruct the landform history of a 300-square-mile area of Fiordland in New Zealand, from the early Pleistocene some 2.5 million years ago, when the world cooled and glaciers formed, through today’s warmer interglacial period. “The first question we asked was, how much of the current landscape and relief is a result of glacial erosion?”
Top 50 movie special effects shots CRITERIA FOR THIS LIST:This is not a list of 'iconic' SFX shots, such as the opening shot in Star Wars or the final shot in Back To The Future, etc. There are many fantastic SFX shots in cinema history that are artistically 'awesome' without qualifying here. For the purposes of this list, a shot has to be either a) exceptionally convincing, b) ground-breaking or c) an exemplary execution of an oft-used technique. Only one shot is allowed per film. Education Plans Here at Kodable HQ, we enjoy the occasional complexities in life, but we mostly prefer to keep things simple. Sound familiar? After a year of talking with teachers using Kodable in their classrooms, we discovered that we needed to rework our approach to coding education, and fashion a programming curriculum that is equally as beneficial for students, but easier for teachers to manage. Well, we ran back to the lab, performed some tests, and created plans to meet the needs of educators using Kodable! Kodable Education Plans are available in every version of Kodable, and provide teachers with the proper tools to better serve their students and adequately manage programming curriculums in their school.
The Ultimate Road Trip Playlist — 50 Best Road Trip Songs No road trip is complete without a playlist of songs that capture the spirit of traveling on the open road. So we’ve compiled a list of the 50 best road trip songs .

The band teamed up with visual sorcerer and Creator Danny Perez who directed the music video for “Look At Where We Are,” produced by The Creators Project. Perez’s collaboration with Animal Collective produced the visual album ODDSAC back in 2010—an audiovisual assault on the senses where sound and imagery bombarded the viewer into another world. And Perez brought his unique aesthetic to bear on the video for “Look At Where We Are,” using a combination of abstract visuals and the age old story of a man and a woman. However, this isn’t your average love story, but one that involves the woman becoming a Frankenstein’s monster, laid out while her partner operates on her. Find Hot Chip’s upcoming tour dates here.
The Art of Practical Effects As noted by my other entries, I am biased towards natural cinematography shot on motion picture film. If it’s shot through a lens onto celluloid, count me in! Recently, I have been thinking about a list of films with flawless execution of “special” effects. By “special,” I mean true to life, in camera, photographic effects. This excludes computer generated imagery of course.
