For more information and stills gallery, please turn to: www.erikwernquist.com/wanderers For youtube version, please turn here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH3c1QZzRK4 ----- UPDATE: For anyone interested I have made a clip with a few discarded scenes from this film, which can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/132183031 ----- Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available. Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there. As some may notice I have borrowed ideas and concepts from science fiction authors such as Kim Stanley Robinson and Arthur C. Clarke, just to name a few. And visually, I of course owe many tips of my hat to painter Chesley Bonestell - the legendary master of space art. More directly, with kind permission from Ann Druyan I have also borrowed the voice of astronomer and author Carl Sagan to narrate the film. The audio I used are excerpts from his own reading of his book 'Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space' (1994, Random House, http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/159735/pale-blue-dot-by-carl-sagan/) - needless to say, a huge inspiration for this film. ----- CREDITS: VISUALS BY - Erik Wernquist - erik@erikwernquist.com MUSIC BY - Cristian Sandquist - cristiansandquist@mac.com WRITTEN AND NARRATED BY - Carl Sagan - from his book 'Pale Blue Dot' http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/159735/pale-blue-dot-by-carl-sagan/, courtesy of Ann Druyan, copyright by Democritus Properties, LLC, with all rights reserved COLOR GRADE BY - Caj Müller/Beckholmen Film - caj@beckholmenfilm.se LIVE ACTION PHOTOGRAPHY BY - Mikael Hall/Vidiotism - mikael@vidiotism.com LIVE ACTION PERFORMANCE BY - Anna Nerman, Camilla Hammarström, Hanna Mellin VOCALIST - Nina Fylkegård - nina@ladystardust.se THANK YOU - Johan Persson, Calle Herdenberg, Micke Lindgren, Satrio J.

Gorillaz - new music in response to Drumph by JoFF Rae

Gorillaz returns after six years with the apocalyptic "Hallelujah Money" video, the first taste of their new record which is coming later this year. The band has issued this song on the eve of the Inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump to serve as commentary on a politically-charged, historical moment.

"In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to,” Gorillaz bassist Murdoc Niccals told Noisey. “Me. That's why I'm giving you this new Gorillaz song, a lightning bolt of truth in a black night. You're welcome. Now piss on! The new album's not gonna write itself."

“Hallelujah Money” is the first single from the virtual band since the release of their last album, The Fall. Of course, it’s not at all clear when their next album will see release, but the group insists it’ll be out later this year.

How to Succeed with Brunettes US Navy 1967 by JoFF Rae

Dating, Courtship, Marriage, Romance, Social Skills... US Navy Training Film

Demonstrates proper dating etiquette for US Navy officers, at first by showing what NOT to do. US Navy Training Film MN-10283C

Awesome Navy film I remember watching as a brand new Midshipman at Auburn NROTC. I wonder what year they finally retired this classic?

How to Succeed with Brunettes’ is one of nearly 3000 training films produced by the U.S. Navy during the 1960s that range from topics such as “good hygiene” to how women enlisted in the military should “conduct” themselves around their male counterparts. It’s also said that the film was lampooned by the television news program 60 Minutes in its early days and that the show even presented the Navy with a “faux Oscar” for How to Succeed With Brunettes for being the most “unnecessary” and “fiscally wasteful” film on record for the time. For you see, back in 1966 it was tax dollars that covered the $64,000 tab for creating this cringe-worthy film.

Ben Frost - artist by JoFF Rae

Ben Frost is a visual artist whose work seeks to challenge contemporary norms and values of Western culture and society. Frost’s visual work places common iconic images from advertising, entertainment, and politics into startling juxtapositions that are often confrontational and controversial. He currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia, and exhibits locally and internationally.

The title 'Ben Frost is Dead' comes from his 2000 solo exhibition of the same name where he faked his own death. Invitations were created in the form of a newspaper funeral notice and distributed nationwide. Newspapers labelled him 'sick' and his actions 'perverse,' when, by complete coincidence, the invitations went out on the same day a local art patron died.

The collaborative exhibition 'Colossus' with Roderick Bunter in 2000 at the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane featured a 12m x 2.4m mural by the artists, called 'Where Do You Want To Go Today?'. The mural featured controversial imagery, including masturbating cartoon characters amongst a pastiche of advertising icons as a statement on society's continuing loss of innocence. In the final week of the exhibition, a disgruntled viewer entered the gallery and slashed one of the paintings with a knife. Police requested the exhibition be closed. In 2002, he exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney as part of 'Primavera: Young Artists Under 35', where the same painting - 'Where do You Want To Go Today?' - was exhibited. Police again requested the painting be removed due to public concern.

TimeBomb is the brainchild of digital artist Lukasz Karluk (Holler) and Sydney sculptor/painter Maddi Boyd (KissKiss). It was first presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney on May 27, 2009 http://creativesydney.com.au/programme/mca-events/remixing-history/timebomb A report from the night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AawJD_hvNgU Merging interactive programming and traditional wild-style graffiti painting (“bombing”), Time Bomb allows the audience to unlock the secret history behind a graffiti wall (http://vimeo.com/4782201). Over four days nine urban artists contributed to the TimeBomb piece: DMOTE, Ben Frost, Kid Zoom, Numskull, Roach, Creon, John Doe, Bennett and KissKiss. Painting layers upon layers of different styles, their work was documented through time-lapse photography, creating an animated film of the whole process. Shots from the work can be seen here http://www.flickr.com/search/show/?q=timebombsydney The final installation features two giant graffiti walls suspended in the museum. One wall is the real painting, the other a projected film double. The visitors’ physical movements in the museum can then control the film, going backwards in time, revealing the now-covered layers of graffiti.
