Two great videos. Quite different, but both amazing. The first one is really about being there at the right time (and being cool enough to keep shooting the video the whole time): The second is shot from a profesional drone and shows a very interesting behaviour (two males battling for the privilege of swimming around with… Read More
Try and work in these conditions! And I thought that People’s Republic of China had unions to protect workers…

Aren’t they cute these pinnipeds?
Chris Burkard is totally out of his mind, and he’s a surf photographer who decided to explore the world’s coldest waves. He brought back images, videos and a TEDtalk presentation which are really exceptionnal:
Mount Everest is high. No. It’s the highest point on Earth and it is 29,029-feet high. Do you see what it really means? This is too high to easily recognize. So, Richard Johnson, Bonnie Berkowitz, and Lazaro Gamio provided a web page with a long graphical representation of this height. You can visit at Scaling… Read More
Filmmaker Gordon Buchanan, while shooting a BBC documentary in Svalbard, Norway, experienced being considered as a prey worth hunting. Despite ending with no killing (the glass cage was strong enough), this must have been a real moment of stress. Some of the photos shot by Gordon are in the article published in the Daily Mail… Read More
I don’t know why but this video clip attracts me strangely. Even if I don’t understand all the advanced notions that are evocated quickly one after the other, (I am not really up-to-date despite all my efforts to understand some of it), I bow in front of the enormous work to adapt Queen’s music (Bohemian… Read More
The polar bear is a fascinating animal. Marion Jonchères presents it in a photo and video documentary. L'Ours Polaire – roi de l'Arctique par mjoncheres
A lovely movie that has been collecting awards for the amazingly beautiful landscapes and time-lapse sequences of night and day mountain images from the Canadian Rockies. Vimeo link I heartfully recommend this mountain photo-sequence or video; I don’t know how to describe it. But I love it.
You never saw the magnificent race track of Nurburgring under this appearance: covered with snow. Better! The snow has frozen. Worse: A pilot takes a formula car on a trip around the track and we can have a peek. No speed record for sure but a very unusual show. YouTube link
They don’t seem so ferocious or so voracious those big sharks. I wouldn’t do it, anyway. YouTube link
I recently received an email from Tom Wrigglesworth inviting me to have a look at a recently published video. Usually, I let such requests go by (if they are not just caught and dumped by my anti-spam filter). Sometimes, I have a look at them. Today, I was stopped by the sheer simplicity of this… Read More
Rather than using electricity to power a car, here is a prototype using Coke Zero and Mentos. YouTube link But, when you’ve been using so much coke, you need to clean your car. Just don’t try to do it the same way as… Two guys vs. a car wash spray hose
I am unsure which one is the best approach to teenager sex education… YouTube link YouTube link from Miss Lovecraft
And the winner is not the one you would bet on. You must always stay very attentive to the very last move of your opponent under the microscope (or the video camera with a macro-photography lens). Spider attack from Ahmet Ozkan on Vimeo.
The F-35 is an American figter aircaaft. For this kind of product, you must thoroughly test the ejector seat which may save the life of its pilots later. Here is how it’s done before you get a full aircraft available for a crash test (kinda expensive to loose an F35 for a test). YouTube link… Read More
