Take A Look At The Beautiful Mechanical Innards Of An R/C R2-D2

Take A Look At The Beautiful Mechanical Innards Of An R/C R2-D2 | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
What goes into making R2-D2? In the Star Wars universe, it’s a bunch of fictional technological bits and bobs. In ours, it’s usually a bit of electronics and Kenny Baker. But if you’re making an R/C R2? it takes a hell of a lot of technical wizardry, as this video about the R2-D2 Builders Club shows.

Um Dia fui ao Cinema: As 10 cenas mais difíceis de filmar

Um Dia fui ao Cinema: As 10 cenas mais difíceis de filmar | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
Vamos ao cinema para ficarmos maravilhados pelo que vemos; mas poucos são aqueles que ao verem uma cena espectacular dão por si a pensar: mas como é que eles filmaram isto?

Mesmo com toda a ajuda dos computadores e efeitos digitais, muitos filmes continuam a recorrer a cenas filmadas que desafiam a nossa imaginação, e que são dignas de serem relembradas e revistas sempre que possível.

Watch War and Peace: The Splendid, Epic Film Adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s Grand Novel (1969) | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
There’s an old axiom that mediocre books make great movies and great books make for lousy movies. Mario Puzo’s bestseller The Godfather is a straightforward potboiler but Francis Ford Coppola spun it into one of the best films ever made. In contrast, F.

Um Dia fui ao Cinema: Miss Todd [Curta]

Quase todas as pessoas interessadas pela aeronáutica reconhecem os nomes dos pioneiros da aviação, como os irmãos Wright, Blériot, e outros. Mas poucos reconhecerão Emma Todd, a primeira mulher a desenhar e construir um avião (em 1910). É por isso mais que justo que esta curta em animação nos dê a conhecer esta fantástica senhora, que há mais de um século já tornava realidade os seus sonhos de voar bem acima do solo.

San Andreas without the special effects looks even more ridiculous | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
You know what happens in a real earthquake? A pause. And then slight confusion. And then frantically trying to remember what elementary school taught you on where you should go. And then panic because you don’t remember. You know what happens when you film an earthquake disaster movie such as San Andreas? Comedy.

sound + vision: A Europa segundo Rossellini | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it

Num mundo acelerado, marcado pela exaltação do efémero e do fait divers, a questão da preservação da memória cinematográfica é mais actual do que nunca. Por alguma razão, a secção de clássicos do Festival de Cannes — no essencial, dedicada à apresentação de cópias restauradas de filmes historicamente significativos — foi-se transformando num espaço privilegiado do maior certame cinematográfico do mundo.

Cities as we know them came into being when they industrialized in the 19th century. Film as we know it came into being when its own industry developed in the 20th. And so film came into its own in an era when cities around the world had become the most fascinating places going.

Watch Alfred Hitchcock Make Cameo Appearances in 37 of His Films (Plus Free Hitchcock Films Online) | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
It may sound redundant, but to many people a Hitchcock film would not be a Hitchcock film without Hitchcock. By this I mean not only Hitchcock’s masterful command of light and shadow, camera movement, and editing, but also the brief, witty appearances of the man himself, in front of the camera.
