Doctor Who Fan-Made Short Film - Stone

Another great fan-made short from John Smith.

Like horror? Like the Weeping Angels?

Don't blink!

Commercial That Makes You Think - Starring Downton Abby's Michelle Dockery

The first time I saw this video I thought it was absolutely brilliant. It stars Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey.

I don't want to give anything away so I'm not going to say anymore. Watch and see what you think. Feel free to comment below.

Doctor Who & Sherlock Crossover! Amazing fan-made short!

I love fan made videos. I've made plenty of my own. Most fan-made videos are music videos where you can tell a new story of the characters through the music. I'm not talking about slapping images together. It needs to make some sense, either matching lyrics or a new complete storyline. It takes some talent to make a good music video that matches picture with song in a way that tells a story.

What is more difficult is telling a new short story using only footage from a show(s) and making it look like it was filmed that way. The video below is one of the best I've seen. The time it must have taken to place two characters on two different shows together on screen and look almost seamless is astonishing.

WHOLOCK is a great short film by John Smith that every Whovian and Sherlock fan should watch. Even if you're not a fan, check it out for the fantastic effects. Then check out the breakdown for all the effects work done for the short. 

TableTop Season 3 Is A Go!

Most of you know I'm a huge fan of the YouTube show TableTop. They've had two great seasons and now they're going independent for season three. They needed $500,000 to make 15 episodes and they surpassed that goal! (See video below.) That may seem like a lot to some but this show is television broadcast quality for a fraction of what it costs for a half hour show on TV.

As Wil Wheaton explained:
I completely understand a sense of 'sticker shock' upon hearing that this YouTube show needs half a million dollars to produce fifteen episodes. This week, I'm doing an episode of The Big Bang Theory, When it's all finished and cut together, it'll be about 22 minutes (approximately the same length as the average episode of TableTop), and it'll cost several million dollars to produce. If you do a strict math problem, you'll see that we do fifteen (or 20 if/when we get there) episodes of TableTop - 33 minutes, at least, that's 660 minutes of TableTop - for less than the cost of a single 22 minute episode of network television.
The next goal is $750,000 to make 20 episodes. They have 28 days left and I would not be surprised if they get there. They have some great perks, even for people like me who can't afford to contribute a lot of money.

Doctor Who: What 9th, 10th & 11th mean to us

So true!

I LOVE Matt's Doctor but then I go back and watch David and boy I miss his Doctor. 

The 50th anniversary episode was, in my opinion the all time best Doctor Who episode.
