Fantastic behind the scenes making-of video showing how a lot of the stunts and CGI wizardry was done for the TRON Legacy. Nice to see some good ole’ fashioned acrobatics and acting were at the core of a majority of the film. The video does contain some spoilers, so for those of you who haven’t seen it yet (and you should), be prepared.
Update: Looks like Disney keeps taking this video down all over YouTube, hopefully the new link works. If not, do a search for “making of TRON” at YouTube. God forbid Disney has some content that promotes a popular movie up on the internet for free.

Meet Dot, she’s the star of the “world’s smallest stop motion film” using the new Nokia N8 camera phone. It’s pretty remarkable to watch, especially in full-screen mode. On another note, I think this would make a fantastic side-scrolling video game as well!
“A slow motion pull back revealing metaphorical images of the end of empires.”
