Hello! I'm Ambassador, and this is my blog. It's pretty eclectic and filled with a lot of different things, so don't expect to find any one thing. (I cannot tag to save my life) Feel free to say hi!

VFX for sci-fi short film RISE »

the-vanity-of-e:

Starring Anton Yelchin and Rufus Sewell, and directed by David Karlak  (The Candidate).  I had the privilege of being involved in this project in its very, very early script stages, and I am AMAZED to see how far Karlak and his team have taken it.

This is a story about social and political change, breaking down oppressive social constructs, and expanding our understanding of individual identity.  Please, if you have a dollar or two to spare, consider contributing to RISE.  Or reblog to spread the word.  :)

RISE »

annachibi:

In the near future, sentient robots are targeted for elimination after they develop emotional symmetry to humans and a revolutionary war for their survival begins.

We are very close to finishing the short, and the plan is to raise $20,000 to complete the visual effects work that remains. Once complete, the short film will be available to stream online for free.

The short film stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness, Terminator Salvation) and Rufus Sewell (Dark City, Hercules), who both deliver exceptional performances. The screenplay is written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Pacific Rim, God of War). Because RISE was shot over the span of over a year, several talented cinematographers have worked on RISE. They include, Roman Vasyanov, Sam McCurdy, Perry Ho and Chris Probst. The visual effects are being supervised by Scott Metzger.

If you’re interested, please help get this thing made or consider giving a signal boost!

Can you imagine someone casting their first successful corporeal Patronus, but it comes out enormous and unidentifiable and it just keeps emerging out of their wand… everyone turns to watch, confused and concerned, and the caster just stares blankly at the Patronus until some nerd recognizes the shape and shouts, “Good lord, it’s a Blue Whale!”

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 

Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.

But wait, there’s more.

Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.

Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.

They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.

not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

badass.

I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”
