Once I saw how little he knew about 'Star Wars', I immediately read his 'T:2' to see if he didn't know who the good guy was. I was pleased that someone has finally seen it the way Cameron clearly made it to be experienced, and that it worked so well.

"Clara, tell me...am I a good man?"

I'm a bass, and I'm used to singing from the bass clef, but I'll cope with ottava-below treble.

Is the theory that we'd only record audio, or video as well?

As former Script Editor Terrance Dicks said in the introduction to the first New Adventures book, if continuity gets in the way of a good story, you throw out continuity smile

See, my problem with this idea is that it often seems to be applied both proactively and comprehensively when a creative team simply want to have free reign, and that has nothing to do with the quality of the story that's ultimately produced. Throwing out some small aspect of the continuity is acceptable as the last resort in an effort to make a good story workable. Ignoring it in its entirety is unacceptable as the first gambit of a new author with no ideas for working in an established universe. If you can't make any of your ideas work without first wiping the slate clean and starting from scratch, then you probably shouldn't be working with an existing property.

Although Doctor Who is a case where there had never been any continuity, or attempt to keep it, until the 80's when the fanboys took over the show. Unless you were the one who wrote the old episode, and you had your script, it was up to your faulty memory to try and bring up a past event. Every new production team DID wipe the slate clean, doing things their own way. That's why the show lasted so long (and is why the new show is already getting creaky from all the new baggage).

To be fair to Doctor Who, the whole concept of 'continuity' quickly becomes wibbly-wobbly when the entire show is served with copious helpings of delicious time travel, washed down with lovely paradox cocktails.

'The Timeless', a 64K demo by Mercury, shown at Revision 2014 this weekend.

In other words, this entire video is generated in real-time by a program that is no longer than 65,536 bytes in its entirety. It could fit onto a floppy disk more than 20 times over.

Happy Get Lucky, with free in-camera effects demo, sort-of, pardon my camera shadows...

I saw this posted on Slate, and it's my new favorite thing, both visually and musically. Are you saying you did the camera work?

Oh, no, just inventing an apology on behalf of the actual camera operator.

Some of the comments I've seen on this video elsewhere express surprise that so much of London can look the same, because of all the damage it took during the Blitz. Ignoring for a moment that London is pretty big, and the damage was not evenly distributed, they forget that the original movie is basically full of landmarks. While some of those were damaged by bombing, we fixed them because they are landmarks.
