Richard Linklater talks to The Hollywood Reporter about the impetus for his film, Boyhood, shot over a span of 12 years. He says, "It was a crazy idea.

Aitor Throup animates scans of Damon Albarn's skull in the music video for "Everyday Robots." The single is Albarn(of Gorillaz and Blur fame)'s first solo effort. Explains The Creators Project, "The video for Everyday Robots was created using the CGI programme ZBrush. Used to create life-like 3D images of people, it is popular in the gaming industry and in Hollywood. Rather than the finished result though, it was the process that particularly captured Throup's attention, and it is this that is featured in the video, where a portrait of Albarn is slowly built, from the skull outwards. The image is designed to unfold in perfect synch to the music." Watch below and read more here.

It's like Richard Linklater took Francois Truffaut's decades-spanning Antoine Doinel series and mashed them all into one movie. That's one way to look at his new feature film, Boyhood, which was in production over a span of 12 years as his main character aged naturally from 7 to 19.

The BBC's new nature series Hidden Kingdoms uses unusual techniques and cutting-edge technology to bring the viewer into the world of small animals. Says executive producer Mike Gunton to Televisual, "This is not under the microscope but in it. Rather than looking down at the subject you get the sense of what it looks like for them...You can’t explore the miniature world beneath our feet in a conventional way – either photographically or narratively – the physics of that world are so small and move so fast and the creatures live in such extraordinary ways that we had to reimagine natural history filmmaking. We’ve evolved almost a new sub genre of natural history."
