Competition: Win The Miracle Series 1 on DVD

The Miracle is released on 25th March

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies to give away.

Synopsis
From the makers of hit drama The Young Pope comes Sky Italia original series The Miracle. Visionary, award winning writer Niccolò Ammaniti (The Crossroads, As God Commands) pens this intense and intriguing tale of politics, mob violence, and the awesome power of belief. After its acclaimed run on Sky Atlantic, The Miracle Series One is set to arrive on DVD and digital courtesy of Acorn Media International.

A fearsome mafia boss, a naïve young Prime Minister, a priest who has lost his path, an ill security general, and a haematologist with an ailing mother – these people from disparate walks of life are tied together by something inexplicable: a miracle. During a raid on a mafia base in an abandoned army swimming pool, a statue of the Virgin Mary is discovered in a pool of blood – not from any violence, but wept from her stone eyes. There is no answer to the mystery, but it has the power to change all of their lives forever.

This secret is capable of sending a man mad, driving a scientist to the very limits of reason and destabilising a country already hanging on a delicate balance. Pragmatism, national interest, faith and science are the paths taken to find an answer to this incomprehensible phenomenon, but the search for answers only uncovers more questions…and the statue’s isn’t the only blood spilled.

Forgot About Dre ft. Chris Pratt (with music)


I synced up Chris Pratt rapping to Forgot About Dre with the original backing track. Original video here:

Creation process: Downloaded the original acapella and backing track. Brought them into Adobe Audition and synced them up with the full song. Then, muted everything but Eminem's vocals and spent a long time splitting and time stretching Pratt's vocals to line up exactly with the Eminem vocals. Added a vocal chain to Chris' vocals, and added a hard limiter to the whole thing. Muted Eminem's vocals, unmuted the backing track and exported the audio. Took it into Premiere, where I did the same splitting and time stretching process with the video as I did with the audio. (I could have done this in Audition, but I forgot). Synced my exported audio with the video I just made. Added the Dr. Dre part of the music video to the beginning. Used RGB Curves to tint the video, except for the pause in the middle. Exported that video and brought it into After Effects. Added a lens flare and motion tracked it to the video. Faded it out for the pause in the middle. Added the letter box, also fading them out for the pause. Went to Photoshop to create a curved picture of Chris, brought that back into After Effects. Motion tracked that into the magazine. Added my watermark. Export video. Done.

NBC station WRC, Pat Collins Wears Grape Costume to Interview Student Suspended For Banana Costume


Washington, DC stations have been folllowing recently was the case of Bryan Thompson, a 14-year-old student at Colonial Forge High School who was suspended for running onto the field during a school football game — wearing a banana costume — earlier this month.

Thompson was interviewed by WRC reporter Pat Collins this week (watch the video, above). Thompson wore the infamous banana suit, and Collins, not to be outdone, dressed like a grape, in a not-so-subtle attempt to make the point that Thompson was doing nothing wrong.

"It starts with a banana," Collins said in his report. "Then all of a sudden you have an apple, and an orange, and then maybe a grape, and before you know it, you have fruit salad in the schools. We can't have that."

Students who protested Thompson's 10-day suspension were given detention. Faced with an onslaught of criticism — from reports like this one, as well as advocacy groups like the ACLU, school principal Karen Spillman resigned on Wednesday. All the suspensions were lifted.
