In 1963, Jim Henson (27 years at the time) was hired to create this short film titled Robot to show at a Bell System seminar for business owners. It was recently discovered in the AT&T Archives.
Here are two videos breaking down how they created the special effects for Chronicle
Here is a look at a web series recently released called Guidestones, a narrative adventure/mystery/conspiracy series that was produced by a couple independent companies based in Toronto (iThentic and 3 O’Clock TV), and was shot in Toronto, Atlanta Georgia and India.
There’s a Stonehenge-like monument in Elbert County, Georgia that is inscribed with ten commandments for rebuilding civilization after the apocalypse. The monument is referred to as the Guidestones and it was built anonymously in 1979. This series builds a fictionalized story centred around that real monument.
Here is the first trailer. Enjoy! Go here to watch the first episode.
