Raiding The Lost Ark

This would have to be the best 'making of' I have seen.  Though less of a 'making of' and more of a love letter to a classic.  Not easy considering this film was made nearly 32 years ago.

What a great film the first Indy was.  Was amazed to learn that the flying wing fight scene in Egypt (Tunisia) was all made up on the spot.  Always considered that to be one of my favorite choriographed scenes in this film, but nope, all made up on the spot.  Seemed like making Raders of the Lost Ark was as fun as was for everyone else to see it.  It's filmmaking folklore these days.  Loved every minute of this a recommend setting aside a few hours.

AT&T and Magnum see the future.

I came across this today while disappearing into a wikipedia wormhole.  Made in 1993, (which I remember as clearly as yesterday, and yet it's close to 20 years ago) and featured the moustacheod one himself, Tom Selleck in the voiceover.  Most of the "future" they have dreamed of in this TVC is commonplace today.

Although they didn't dream big enough when it came to the phone booth video phone, we'll all carry that in our pockets instead thanks.

"Address Is Approximate"

Made using Google Map images a some beautiful stop motion, director Tony Jenkins created a short using a lonely desk toy to escaping his confined world and takes a cross country sunrise drive down the coast.  Makes me want to leave my desk for the day.
