Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Monday 22 September 2014

[Slightly, briefly NSFW] Ever wondered what your body looks like on the inside?

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in Video on Thursday 11 September 2014

Of course, gelatin is a ‘protein produced from collagen extracted from the boiled bones, connective tissues, and other animal products’ (thanks, Wikipedia). Doesn’t sound good, but damn, […]

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Monday 8 September 2014

Memo: if you’re going to hang around an exploding volcano, be sure to dress appropriately for the occasion. Explorer, documentary maker, and fearless adventurer, George Kourounis, took on the Marum crater in the archipelago of the South Pacific’s Vanuatu, filming the dramatic happenings of an inferno lava lake and getting, in his own words, ‘a window into hell’.

These two guys take FOREVER to get out of the water even though there’s a huge shark right next to them

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Tuesday 2 September 2014

This video has to be seen to be believed. The incident took place in Destin, Florida, in the Southern United States. Taken from a high-up vantage point, we are treated to the sight of a couple of rather overweight fellows meandering in the shallow waters on a pristine beach complete with white sands and neatly ordered sun chairs. [Watch this incredible video here. Spoiler: you mightn't ever want to go into the water again!]

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Thursday 24 July 2014

A couple had the time/fright of their lives when they want for a sunset kayak outing off the coast of Puerto Madryn, Argentina. The pair spotted a pod of southern wright whales and were clearly delighted (although the video is in Spanish). Their delight may have soured somewhat when the whales quickly approached, whether angry or curious it’s hard to tell. [watch the video here]

Contributions Reader Find

By Milo Sumner in New Film on Wednesday 12 March 2014

Late last night, filmmaker Tatia Pilieva released her short film entitled First Kiss. It is a project with a simple premise: she invites total strangers into her studio and simply asks them, in their own time, to kiss each other. Beautifully shot, the result is a perfect combination of awkward and heart-warming.

A Go-Pro fell out of a plane, landed in a pig pen and was found intact: you won’t believe what it recorded!

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Tech on Thursday 13 February 2014

We don’t have many details of this, but take the YouTube video description for what it is. A GoPro is ready to go in a skydiving plane with a bunch of jumpers. Somehow, it accidentally falls from the plane, and tumbles down, spinning furiously (and we see a cool effect of recording framerate/spin-rate almost matching) all the way. And it keeps recording.

I was in Metropolis, hanging with my buddy, Dan Rutely, and he’s like, ‘Do you want to see the new video I just finished?, I’m like, ‘yeah, buddy, Dan!’ The video’s a trip that messes with perception of visual reality. I could go into an explanation here, but just interact with it yourself. He’s since […]
