It took us about 5 minutes to bring everyone up to speed, place people around the room, and figure out a rough path. The original shot is a little over two minutes long. It’s obviously really hard to get 40 people to hold still for that long, so a lot of the sped up sections hide some of the movement. The other sped up and slowed down parts were just to emphasize it’s epic awesomeness.

I really like the concept.  I assumed they did it the way they said they did before I read the description. The only other way I know to get this effect is to actually have a large number of still cameras fire simultaneously and then you can stitch the pictures together like a video, but that way is obviously more expensive and way more time consuming.

Yea the trigger discipline is non existent on some of the models, but its art/photography so it’s to be expected.

A Steadicam is one of those things I want to get as soon as I get a new video camera.

A Titanium gold tiger striped Deagle at that:

Seems like he found the ideal gun for his personality.

I talked about the Cat Shit One animated series a few times in the past.  In order to get some more exposure for it, the company that made it got it translated and put it up on youtube for free for a few weeks for everyone to enjoy.

You can read my previous thoughts on the episode HERE, and a breakdown of what the animals in the series are according to their nationality HERE.

Make sure you watch it soon. They are supposedly going to take it offline at the end of the week!

UPDATE: It is now taken off YouTube. You can buy it on Amazon now though – HERE

Among the general public, MIT has a much-deserved reputation as a training ground for brilliant scientists and engineers. But as a home to expert marksmen and women – well, not so much. Yet in the world of collegiate pistol shooting, MIT ranks among the elite. In 2005 and 2007, the team won the National Rifle Association’s intercollegiate championship, beating out teams from the Coast Guard, the US Military Academy at West Point, and the US Naval Academy in Annapolis.

Full Story – HERE (definitely worth a read)

I didn’t go to MIT, but I majored in triggernometry and minored in drinking for the first few years of university…. then shit got real.

Kansas legislators during the last session approved a number of changes to the state’s concealed carry law. One of them was that people who are renewing their license no longer have to take any sort of test to prove they’re still proficient with a firearm.

The changes also removed language from the law that gave the attorney general the right to deny applicants a license if they “suffer from a physical infirmity which prevents the safe handling of a weapon.”

I know there is a difference between not seeing anything at all and being legally blind.  I’m all for equal rights, but if a person potentially can’t see what they are shooting at 100% of the time… giving them a gun sounds like a bad idea to me.

Don’t you hate it when you imagine yourself doing something a lot cooler than how it actually turns out?

A good addition to his first vid “Villain Tech Support“.

Some more in depth scripts and I could see that guy’s channel/character becoming really popular.
