Cool Stuff – September 27, 2013

Welcome to Cool Stuff, a recurring feature where we post our favorite links, including our favorite articles and how-tos, videos, images and more.

Cool Stuff articles are culled from BLFlip, the official Flipboard Magazine of If you’ve got an iOS or Android device, you can download the Flipboard app for free now.

  • There’s fan fiction and then there’s FAN FICTION. The film below, courtesy of photographer Von Wong, falls into the latter category. This one’s for the Game of Thrones fans out there, and is a testament to what independent filmmakers can do these days…
  • Half of a motion project is audio (and many say it’s the more important half). The folks at have a nice tutorial on capturing sound in a single system (like a DSLR).
  • Speaking of filmmaking, here’s something from Lucasfilm that kinda blew our minds. Is this the future of filmmaking?
  • Gregory Heisler is one of our favorite photographers, and over at, contributor Sara Lando has a three-part series going on about her time assisting him in Dubai. Part one is here, and part two can be found here.
  • And finally, here’s something else that blew our minds. Remember – this is a live performance, captured entirely in-camera.
