Trying out the Blend app for a friend.
Tumblr seems to have started deleting accounts for copyright reasons. Probably starting with highly followed. As I said I’m sticking around and will continue to use this service as I wish.
If things don’t work out you can search for “Burningfp” on your favourite alternative and I’ll probably be there already.
But back up now, if you can.
Jumping into Victoria Falls - Rise of the Continents - Episode 1 Preview - BBC Two (by BBC)
Those of you who aren’t Bots and actually pay attention to me on here might already know that for my actual job I make CGI for Television at BDH in Bristol.
Recently we worked on a landmark series for the BBC called Rise Of the Contintents, this involved visualising the unimaginable changes that have taken place on the Earth over hundreds of millions of years based data generated by paleogeologists and satellite scanning.
This is a preview of show featuring the presenter Iain Stewart (Professor of Geoscience Communication at Plymouth University), leaping, fully clothed, into the top of the Victoria Falls, free as a lamb in springtime. This sequence contains no, I repeat no, CGI.
The series has already aired in the States and here is a link a trailer for that version, which does contain some of the work we did.
The series begins in the UK at 9pm, Sunday 9th June. (ie tomorrow).
As you were.
A few words on the purchase.
Something was going to buy Tumblr at some point, we have just been waiting for the moment.
I certainly think the Tumblr Elves deserve a big payoff, they made a magical, wondrous place where we have met and made so many good friends.
Unfortunately Yahoo have such a poor reputation of buying beloved places and then letting them rot or actually running them into the ground.
But Tumblr is my internet home so I will continue to be here and see how it progresses.
The most important thing is the connections that have been made, and I don’t see why we should not capitalize on the sell off too.
The walls around the internet gardens are getting higher and stronger so it is important to find ways around this.
So if you’re into what I share, do or think about, you can generally find me on most internet things. Or you can send me an email, I’m thinking of starting a list, the address is on my Tumblr page.
It’s been emotional.
