This project was extremely fun to make. I was thinking of this project around December of last year. So glad I got to make this dream come reality. I wanted to film for a longer period of time. I was thinking of having an insanely amount of footage and upload it around the fall. I couldn’t wait as you can clearly see so I did some now. Maybe I’ll do another one who knows. But the weather also took a toll on me on trying to finish this. This was extremely hard to upload at 2k resolution because FCP doesn’t have the right 2k video dimensions. After the 5th upload I finally managed to figure it out. It was well worth the struggle and the headaches because the shots you get with this guy are incredible. Worth every headache I got when trying to upload this lol.
A few miles east of Idaho Falls lies a dramatic landscape of gently rolling benches and exposed steep ravines. Past volcanic activity created an area so rich in food and shelter that it has its own designation -The Tex Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Tex Creek provides essential connectivity for wildlife moving from harsh high elevation forests to lower elevation sage and grasslands. In fact, Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG) estimates Tex Creek provides vital winter range for upwards of 7,000 elk and mule deer on any given year. Unfortunately, Tex Creek’s habitat status changed rapidly in August of 2016.
Collective Architecture has been appointed to design Scotland’s first Creation Centre, which will be in Glasgow’s magnificent former fish market, The Briggait.
It is for Phase 2 of the redevelopment of The Briggait, a Grade A-listed complex in the city’s medieval Merchant City, which is the Wasps HQ and already provides studios, work and rehearsal space for many artists, performers and creative companies.
The £4 million Briggait Creation Centre will give Glasgow its first dedicated public base for dance and Scotland’s first purpose built accessible space for disabled dancers. It is also Scotland’s first home for the rapidly growing physical performance sector – which includes circus, street theatre, flying trapeze and other aerial skills
Jude Barber, Project Director for Collective Architecture, said: “Our practice has great admiration for Wasps, their partners and the work they do. We are familiar with the wonderful Briggait building, which involves many exciting opportunities and challenges. To have the opportunity to develop a major cultural centre within such a splendid historical setting overlooking the River Clyde is incredibly special.
“Our team has only just commenced work on the project, but we are really looking forward to immersing ourselves in the process with the consultant team at Arup. Our practice has all the necessary skills and expertise and this firmly establishes us in the arts and cultural sector.”
Project Architect Ewan Imrie will lead the Briggait team, which includes Arup Scotland, Atelier Ten and New Acoustics, with Collective Architecture Conservation Architect Gerry Hogan.
A look behind the scenes of Google[x]’s Project Loon
I work at Google and this summer started a YouTube channel with my friend Nat about a bunch of different things we’re curious about at Google: Nat and Lo’s 20% Project. For our most recent video, we got to hang out for a day with Google[x]’s Project Loon team, inside a giant WW2 blimp hangar where they test (and pop) their tennis-court-sized internet balloons. We learned a ton, and we hope that others who watch the video will also learn a lot. Our project is also ongoing, so if you have any thoughts of things you’d want to know more about, we’re all ears! Thanks, Lo
Awesome. Thanks a lot for pointing out! Great & entertaining video. Keep up the good work. Really looking forward to more “behind the moonshot” videos :)
Janulis loves snapping aerial photos with his drone. His photos of Lithuania
provide a fascinating glimpse of the otherwise ordinary world around him.
his drone up near bridges, castles and other interesting locales dotting
the landscape. Sometimes getting an interesting photo required waiting for just
the right moment, like a car fishtailing on an icy road. Other times it
resulted from pure chance, like when he took a wrong exit and stumbled on
several abandoned greenhouses, their roofs pockmarked with holes.
white and viewed from above, ordinary landscapes appear somehow miniature
and quaint, like the world within a snow globe.

bbcone ‘Tumble’ and the National Centre for Circus Arts
We’re very pleased to be working as circus consultants on the BBC’s new show 'Tumble’ and are providing the aerial training in the lead up to the live shows.
We also have four National Centre graduates working on the show as celebrities’ pro-partners: Kate McWilliam, Billy George, Kat Would and Holly Johnstone (pictured above while students here - photography by Bertil Nilsson).
National Centre teachers Amy Panter and Katharine Arnold are the aerial teachers for the project.
Episode 1 airs at 6.30pm on Saturday 9 August, BBC 1.
