A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film

So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.

Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.

A breakdown of medieval armor, since a lot of pieces are required to create a full suit.

As dawn broke on March 27, the center of the Milky Way Galaxy stood almost directly above the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory. In the dry, clear sky of Chile’s Atacama desert, our galaxy’s dusty central bulge is flanked by Paranal’s four 8 meter Very Large Telescope units in this astronomical fisheye view. Along the top, Venus is close to the eastern horizon. The brilliant morning star shines very near a waning crescent Moon just at the edge of one of the telescope structures. Despite the bright pairing in the east, the Milky Way dominates the scene though. Cut by dust lanes and charged with clouds of stars and glowing nebulae, the center of our galaxy sprawls across the darker zenith even as the deep blue sky grows brighter and buildings still glint in moonlight…Image Credit & Copyright: Babak Tafreshi (TWAN), ESO Ultra HD ExpeditionPosted on: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

It is said that God has created man in his own image. But it may be that humankind has created God in the image of humankind.

Which came first: the image or the imagined?

This may have been my absolute favorite thing at the show. It’s the “real” body of the Frankenstein Monster unearthed from the ruins of castle Frankenstein in Vassaria! This thing look 100% real in person. The figure was about 7’ tall.
