The Bird & the Whale by Carol Freeman**Online for a limited time** The Bird and the Whale is a story about a young whale struggling to find his voice. After straying too far from his family to explore a shipwreck, he discovers it's sole survivor, a caged songbird. Together they struggle to survive lost at sea.

Every Kind of Thing In SpaceSpace in infinitely big with infinite stuff in it, but buy using the power of categorisation I can fit it all into a 12 minute video. Grab the poster here: https://store.dftba.com/collections/domain-of-science/products/the-universe-poster This video explores all of the things in the Universe from our Earth and local Solar System, out to the Milky Way Galaxy and looks at all of the different kinds of stars from Brown Dwarfs to Red Supergiant Stars. Then to the things they explode into like white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. Then we look at all the other kinds of galaxy in the universe, blazars, quasars and out to the cosmic microwave background and the big bang. It covers most of the different things that we know about in the Universe. --- References --- Here are a couple of references I used for further reading.

LIFE BEYOND: Chapter 1. Alien life, deep time, and our place in cosmic history (4K)Get the soundtrack: https://bit.ly/345n0nf Support this project on Patreon: http://patreon.com/melodysheep | The biggest question of our time. Are we alone? Chapter 1 of this experience takes you to alien worlds and distant places in time and space, in search of where alien life might be hiding and what our place is within the history of life. After generations of wondering, the truth is finally within our reach. New research and technologies have brought us closer than ever to an answer - only a few decades in the eyes of some NASA scientists. The search has led to new discoveries that will blow your mind wide open and give a profound new perspective on human life. The deeper we look, the deeper we see into nature's imagination, and the more we learn about ourselves. I hope stewing on these thoughts tickles your brain as deeply as it does mine. In upcoming chapters of Life Beyond we will explore making contact with intelligent life, the potential physics of alien biology, how to survive the end of the universe, and more.

Come Be Creepy With Us | Horror Coming of Age Short FilmAnna is a young woman stuck in the midst of a quarter-life crisis who learns how to keep on living after being haunted by an undead spirit from her summer camp past. From screenwriter Michael Calciano and director Beth Fletcher, a weird mish-mash of genres and tones collide in this short about emerging adulthood and millennial angst; about letting go of our pasts and embracing what it means to grow up. A selection of Short of the Week, the web's leading curators of quality short films. SUBMIT A FILM: https://www.shortoftheweek.com/submit/ FULL REVIEW: https://www.shortoftheweek.com/2019/10/28/come-creepy-us/ COME BE CREEPY WITH US Directed by Beth Fletcher https://flethbetcher.com/ "In a genre defined by formula, it’s always exciting to watch a horror film that feels...well...different. Director Beth Fletcher and screenwriter Michael Calciano’s "Come Be Creepy With Us" is a tough nut to describe. An absurdist horror comedy that is as nostalgic as it is fresh, it’s the kind of thing that refuses to be pigeon-holed into a particular classification. It’s weird...it’s unique...it’s also dealing with "real" things, not just playing the same “monster in the room” notes we’ve seen again again in the countless horror shorts. Admittedly, calling "Come Be Creepy With Us" a horror film is somewhat generous. It’s not scary—at least not in a “boo” jump scare way. But whereas those kind of films get their kicks out of a sort of theme park derivation of cinema (it’s all about the ride, baby!), Fletcher’s film is more about an underlying sense of surrealism and dread. After all, good horror isn’t just about the monster...it’s about what the monster represents. Here, Fletcher and her team are tackling depression and the existential aimlessness that comes with it. The fear comes from not knowing what to do next; about being stuck and feeling lost as the world moves on around you. As Fletcher relates in her director’s statement: “Recently I've been discovering how terrifying it can be to try to figure out how to 'be' without being told what to do. I no longer have schedules for school, I don't have any sort of consistency at work, and to be quite honest it feels like I'm lost a lot of the time. When I was a kid my mom always told me to stay put. ‘If you're lost, stay where you are and I'll come find you.’ But here's the kicker: no one's coming to find me.” Depression isn’t exactly a new topic for cinema, but I’ve rarely seen it tackled in such an interesting conceptual and visual way. Thankfully, we don’t get the usual, navel-gazing indie film brooding. Rather, this sucker moves (it feels quicker than it’s 16 minute runtime) conveying depression without ever being slow and boring—a feat in and of itself! Likewise, the visuals evolve with verve. Cinematographer Jesse Coyote Sanchez-Strauss and the film’s production design team do great work here, slowly transforming an apartment into a summer camp and back again. It’s a really interesting way to expand upon what is essentially just a bottle episode of a film—it’s one location, alright, but it’s executed in such a creative visual way that you don’t notice. Moreover, it allows the film to reference the cliché of the horror summer camp milieu, but give it a new spin. The result is referential and nostalgic rather than derivative. Fletcher and her crew (almost everyone involved with the production is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts) Kickstarted the budget for the film and shot it over the course of four days out in Los Angeles. For those who say horror can’t be fresh, "Come Be Creepy With Us" feels like an illustrative counterpoint. Come! Hop into the swamp...the water is just fine..." - S/W Curator, Ivan Kander CREDITS Directed by: Beth Fletcher Written by: Michael Calciano Produced by: Mike Labbadia Co-Produced: by Michael Calciano, Adelaide Lummis and Beth Fletcher Director of Photography: Coyote Edited by: Ede Bell Crowder Production Designer: Melissa Woods Starring: Adelaide Lummis Jasmine Kimiko Co-Starring Michael Calciano Tierra Luckey Dylan Arnold Carissa Bazler Reproduced on this Channel With the Permission of the Filmmakers

Sci-Fi Short Film "How To Be Human" | DUST Exclusive PremiereIf you were forced to flee your own war-ridden country, would you sacrifice what makes you human to survive? "How to be Human" by Bruno Centofanti In a world where artificial intelligence has dismantled the human contribution, Adelphe (Scottish BAFTA-winner, Sophie Kennedy Clark) has to help her sister Kimi (Louise Salter) to lose her humanity. Moreover, Kimi has to forget how to be human in order to fully disguise herself as an AI and survive in the only liveable place, “Cold City”. As they embark on this crossing, Kimi is forced to confront situations that put her sister, and her manufactured intuition, to the test. We learn through this unique perspective as we watch the two sisters pursue safety and refuge, made possible by the help and support of Maria (Les Misérables, Tony-award winner, Frances Ruffelle). In a world where the migration of displaced people is so present, this story reminds us of how being born in the right place and the right time can so often lead us to take our freedom and basic rights for granted. Filmmaker's Statement: As a highly passionate director and producer, I love to discover and tell stories. Storytelling is very much what drives me. My niche is in finding the surprising truth in human stories, to inspire people and to put them in touch with their humanity. I’ve been privileged as a film director to work with a wide and diverse spectrum of artists and subjects. I’ve traveled the world, freely immersing myself in societies, breaking barriers of class and culture. Being the grandson of a Jewish immigrant who buried her past in order to survive and only discovering my own roots later in life, the idea of telling the story of a young girl who needs to hide her identity in order to survive, feels personal, powerful and inspiring to me. How to be Human is a visually compelling story that has many parallels with society today. It shows a dystopian society where humans have been superseded by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the survival of human identity relies on the dangerous crossing to an uncertain future. The Crossing is a pilgrimage where Kimi is forced to leave behind her memories, her experiences and her identity; in the hope that on the other side, things will be better. Will the crossing save her? Has Human freedom and love been lost forever? This is a vivid and relevant story for our times. In a world where the migration of displaced people is so present, this story reminds us of how being born in the right place and the right time can so often lead us to take our freedom and basic rights for granted. Intimate, poetic and life affirming, this isn’t just an incredible story of determination against all odds; we are exploring the precious and delicate nature of human existence and the values that make us who we are. Our aim is to provoke in the audience a great empathy for others and help to dissolve the refugee stigma.
