Peter Pan gets bullied by swan & triceratops. (animation)

While playing around to see if I could use Aperture to control my camera (yes I can!), I got a bit carried away yesterday and hacked together this animation.

Yes it is silent. I hope you enjoy it as much as the actors enjoyed making it.

No small plastic toys were harmed, etc.

I think I vaguely remember this advert. It is seriously disturbing me. And presumably this was meant to appeal to children, in some way? Advertising professionals thought this. Yikes.

Green Wing series 2 – video clips and DVD

Thanks to The British Sitcom Guide’s mailing list, I have just discovered there are clips from the special features on the new Green Wing series 2 DVD (out Monday) on YouTube:

  1. A deleted scene whereGuy, Mac and Boyce classify passing women as “lights on” or “lights off”.
  2. The first 2 minutes of the “making of” documentary. Although as I write, this isn’t working for me.

Green Wing DVDs are available from Amazon UK:

Live action super Mario Bros.

Another great video on YouTube – a live-action recreation of Super Mario Bros. using the popular “people in black suits moving the props about” technique, as seen in the ping pong video I link to previously.

YouTube – I’m a dinosaur

YouTube – I’m a dinosaurThis one ticks all the boxes… well, two boxes, but very important ones.

  1. Dinosaurs
  2. Random idiocy captured in the medium of video and publicized on the web

Both of these should be keenly encouraged, for my money.

UPDATE: This video has been removed from YouTube
