Another Extreme Slow Motion of Falling Jello

Sat April 30, 2011


From ModernistCuisine

There’s something fascinating about watching jello falling on a table in extreme slow motion and then rebounding back up. It’s almost as if it were alive, twisting as it follows its path.

Sony SLT-A33 Review @ DigitalCameraInfo

Fri April 29, 2011

Sony SLT-A33

Sony SLT-A33

The Sony Alpha SLT-A33 did not blow us away in any specific area, but the camera did a passable job in all of our tests… We found the A33 to be a handy shooter with a good set of controls, an intuitive menu system, and some fun features to boot.

We’ve added a new Sony Alpha SLT-A33 [QuickPrice Check] Review to our Reviews Matrix.

DigitalCameraInfo has just published their review of the Sony SLT-A33, a Digital Interchangeable Lens (DIL) camera with a 14.2MP APS HD CMOS sensor, main sensor Live View with Phase detection, electronic viewfinder (1.15M-dot), articulated 3.0-in. tilt/swivel LCD (921k-dot), Continuous Shooting at 10fps, Continuous Shooting 7 fps, 15-point auto focus, 3D Sweep Panorama, and Quick AF Full HD Movie. The fixed translucent (semi-transparent) mirror allows full-time Live View and full-time Phase-detection AF even when recording HD movies.

Fall and Winter Extended Trailer

Fri April 29, 2011

Fall and Winter Extended Teaser from Matt Manderson on Vimeo.

‘Fall & Winter’ is a documentary that explores the origins of our global crisis in order to better understand the catastrophic transition we have now entered. This film presents the ideas and experience of a wide range of people dedicated to confronting this crisis head on. The result is an analysis of our failing institutions and culture so we may be equipped to handle drastic collapse and foster a vital, fundamental rebirth in the way we live on this planet.

We received a letter from Matt Anderson, Director of Fall and Winter in answer to our earlier comments on the original trailer:

Hi, I’m the director of the documentary Fall and Winter. I very much appreciate your comments, and hope that you aren’t too discouraged from watching our film. I do feel it is not on a single-track of ‘gloom and doom’. My process of making the film went from seeing no exit – no way out – to witnessing firsthand a myriad of solutions and adaptive methods which people have been developing in response to this crisis.

I feel that the metaphor of seasons does not represent anything terminal. We all understand that there is an ebb and flow with nature (of which we are a part). The realization of our individual responsibility for fixing this crisis comes with hardship and hard work.

I would encourage you to watch our new extended trailer which I feel gives a much fuller representation of what you can expect in the finished film.

Thanks for taking the time to write about our film!

Best,

Matt Anderson
