Buried Motion Poster

May 22, 2010 — 1 Comment

I saw this over at LivingCinema a few days ago, but because it kept playing over and over again, and it got really annoying, I decided not to post. But! Trailer Addicts has one on their embeddable players~

I can’t stand Ryan Reynolds because he’s so blah on screen, but the campaign is pretty good even if it does remind me of that CSI episode directed by Tarantino, in which Nick gets buried.

Another video by Olafur Arnalds directed by Argentinean motion graphic designer Esteban Diacono, who also happened to direct Light last year.

Hægt, Kemur Ljósið = Slowly, Comes the Light

Beautiful story, and visuals… though I wished the bird moved more gracefully.
Coz… it does move a little stiff, right?

So the Icelandic unpronounceable volcano, except for Icelanders and maybe Nordics… was all over the news for a while, but never did it look this AWESOME. With time-lapse, of course ;P

News channels should really hire people like this. But then again, it isn’t how pretty it is, but how fast you get it out, right? Hence no time for much post-productions? Still, I take this over their images~~~

Yay for more time-lapse videos!
and this one is stunning.

Of course, best viewed on HD~ and if you like it a lot, you can download it through the Vimeo page.

So… casting over at the current NHK Taiga drama gets even more interesting with the announcement that Yusuke Iseya will be playing Takasugi Shinsaku, samurai friend of Ryomaden.

His first appearance will be in the episode scheduled to air on July 18th. It starts from the scene where Ryoma meets Shinsaku and other Choshu samaurai by chance at a restaurant in Nagasaki.

Suzuki Kei, the chief producer, explained: “Ryoma and Shinsaku both died young, had an unconventional fashion sense, dreamed of activity overseas, there were a lot of common features between them. We’ll be depicting them as ‘having the same soul,’ the friendship and intermingling of two people as soulmates.”

Bolding mine.

I gotta be honest with you, I haven’t kept up with Ryomaden, mainly because it just gets a really difficult time-slot here. It airs like at 6am, and then it re-airs at 1pm… Maybe NHK should really think about differing their transmission. But then I would be complaining about that too, right?

Six Degrees of separation! Well, not really… Yu Aoi — anyone knows when her character will show up? — played opposite Yusuke Iseya on Honey & Clover. Their names also appeared together on Tekkonkinkreet… and Tekkon is much cooler than HachiKURO xD

I just wanted to post this photo.
