Silent Transitions

Today’s video comes to you from another continent. Amazing as that is, this video is even better. Everything that this artist makes is quite stylized, and it genuinely works.

The way that 2015 (Yikes!) is depicted is was fascinating then and now, especially seeing the tech that was foretold to come. That and getting to see Frodo play video games.

Fox say on the radio that the hover boards used in the film were genuine (it was really a joke). Looking forward to the future of 2015 as a kid was interesting, but also made me doubtful that things would turn out that way at all. This meme sums it up perfectly in a tongue and cheek sort of way:

But then, I heard* about this…
