i watched the trailer for the imitation game i dont wanna focus on how sad it will be and instead i’ll just say even from just the trailer you can see how much benedict transformed for this role, his vocal performances always absolutely astound me and this is no exception, i am really excited to see his performance and i have never in my life been more sure that somebody’s getting an oscar nomination just from watching a teaser, he’s amazing, it’s gonna be amazing
Juice Willis, a cameraman from “12 Years a Slave”:
[I love] witnessing an actor’s process on set. Seeing how they get in and out of character fascinates me. They’re like real life action figures. However Benedict Cumberbatch’s intensity was damn near unmatched whether shooting or not at Ford’s plantation. It was like 1:00 AM on a Saturday and we had been there for over 13 hours… in a fucking marsh, I’m talking insects the size of GI Joe’s, bats in trees, just horrible conditions for the crew. Steve and Benedict were inside of the mansion blocking the scene directly after Benedict cuts Chiwetel down. We’re all waiting on the porch ready to shoot and get the fuck out of there. Now normally while a scene is being blocked everyone must be silent. But since we were outside and tired, most of us chatted just to keep from falling asleep.
In the midst of our talking, Benedict kicks the fucking front door open. Everyone immediately shuts the fuck up. We’re thinking he’s upset cause we weren’t respectful to the process, you know, kinda like Christian Bale esque, (mind you he’s holding a huge shotgun) however due was still in character. He’s standing on the front porch slowly staring out into the night, looking over the 75 member crew, then creeps back into the mansion closing the doors. Lol we were shook! Or at least I was. Here I was whining ready to go the fuck home and and Benedict comes out looking ready to kill with the most immaculate hair lol
Just goes to show how professional and talented the guy is. To hold that level of concentration for that long is impressive.
Yeah believe the hype, he has a palpable presence on set. (x)
For now, let him sleep.
Encrypted Marauder’s Map
For my cryptology course final I made the Marauder’s Map. I used maze construct theory to design the interior, and the variations of the interior, then scrambled the different versions on folding tabs so that unless they are folded in precisely the correct sequence of left or right the map is confusing and useless. The sequence for reavealing the correct map is the binary code for a hash function of “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’.
I also found this $5 toothless figurine at target and it was already pretty cute but I went “how can I make this even cuter”
here’s what the original toothless figurine looked like, pre-painting (I forgot to take before pics so here’s a picture of it from amazon). I also filled in some gaps in his tail with epoxy putty and sanded his edges a little.
Astronaut readjusts to life back on Earth
> Don’t give him a baby for a while.
HE GRABS THE CUP BUT THEN HE DROPS THE PEN 0.0003 SECONDS LATER
AND HE LOOKS UP AT THE CEILING INSTEAD OF AT THE GROUND WHEN HE CAN’T FIND THEM
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING HE JUST DROPS IT
IT’S NOT FUNNY IT’S VERY LOGICAL THAT HE WOULD HAVE ADJUSTED TO LIVING LIFE WHILE HE WAS IN SPACE BECAUSE IT’S DIFFERENT FROM EARTH BUT I CAN’T FUCKING BREATHE
YES IT’S BACK ON MY DASH THIS IS MY FAVORITE VIDEO
