One of the coolest things to happen at this years Olympics is the performance by Natalia Ischenko (with 15 world titles, nicknamed ‘Phelps in a skirt’) and Svetlana Romashina, the best Synchronised Swimming Duet Team (swimming for Russia) performing in the Free Routine to “Suspiria” by Goblin, at Aquatic Centre, Olympic Park, London, on April 20 2012! Dig on that above.
Another video addition to this edition of Random Cool comes once again courtesy of studioADI. The FX studio has shared the puppet work for the “Bambi Burster” in David Fincher’s Alien 3. Here’s what they had to say about the following video: “For Fincher’s ALIEN 3, we created the “Bambi Burster”. Though cut from the film, this video shows a test of the unfinished rod puppet.
“Crowded around it are ADI co-founder and multi-Oscar nominee Alec Gillis, future WETA dignitary Gino Acevedo, future Oscar winners Dave Elsey and Mark Coulier, and future video demi-god Chris Cunningham. The puppet was sculpted by future director Steve Norrington (BLADE, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN). This video shot by future Oscar winner Tom Woodruff Jr. The Bambi Burster itself never grew up to win anything. Poor little puppet.“
