Interested in creating an astounding 3D street painting? Check out this time-lapse clip to see how these people did it.
In 1937 fascists devastated the town of Guernica with aerial bombings executed by the Nazi Luftwaffe. Picasso's painting Guernica was his reaction the tragedy. The painting has now been made into a 3D video.
James Cameron's upcoming feature Avatar exists not merely to bring a motion-captured Michelle Rodriguez to a wider audience than ever before, but—if we are to believe what he tells us—to singlehandedly revolutionize the way we make, see, and even perceive of the movies. THR braved an interview with the director, who's too busy playing with his new toys to worry about losing his top-grossing-movie title to some gravel-voiced bat-creep. (Besides—by the time Avatar rolls around, the sweeping social revolution that accompanies it will render old notions of currency and spending completely obsolete.
