This video is entitled “Hitch” and it is the amazing graduation project of Felix Meyer, Pascal Monaco and Torsten Strer, 3 students at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hanover. This creation is an animated book containing recipes from the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Now Im not a fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s work, mostly because I get freaked out by horror movies like nobody’s business. But this video is something else, it turned the successful ...

OK, so I promised myself that I’d cut down on the Star Wars content. But I cant help it, there are just too many creative Star Wars geeks out there. So todays dose of Geekery comes from the Surfing Stormtrooper. This guy travels the world, to places like New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, and others, to see new places and surf around the globe. He then takes a series of images while wearing a stormtrooper helmet, ...

Like always, we at Chuknum are rewinding the clock to our childhood, you might have been there as well but at least you must know Captain Planet! He was the star of the 1990′s, an environmental super hero that saves the planet. This show only had 113 episodes but it happens to be one of the more interesting shows I used to watch. It isn’t Marvel nor DC comics, Captain Planet was created based on an ...

This group is consisted of forty two people all synchronized creating outstanding silhouettes that is sure to make our jaws drop. For this Semi-final audition, they went with a slightly different approach, celebrating their identity being american they have done it beautifully. They highlighted landmarks and events of their history in a very clever way. Im absolutely puzzled on by that amount of people that can be synched and morph into different shapes in such little ...

If you are into music and games then you’re gonna love this. I’m not a fan of classical music but orchestras are something else and are too amazing and when combined with video games you get the work of Blake Robinson. He combines games and music and brings amazing orchestral masterpieces. Most of his work involves recreations of popular music from video games like Zelda and Sonic, then rewrites them and comes out with amazing orchestras. ...

This is the Walnut Bike, an amazing wooden bike create by Lagomorph Design, its looks are modern and ...

I love the charm of the past, but Im also a fan of the possibilities of the future. So when I saw this creation by Jerusalem based Rami Tareef called the COD Project. I was hooked. The concept is simple. He took his inspiration from the old wicker chairs that can be seen practically everywhere on the planet, and added a modern flare to it. The result is gorgeous. Dont ask me why, but for ...

I’ve always been intrigued by architecture, the birth child of art and science. It never ceases to amaze me how the human mind can crete such beautiful structures, but this is beyond beautiful its just something else. What you see before you is the Singapore ArtScience Museum (a.k.a The Hand Of Singapore). The structure was made to resemble a human hand welcoming guests to view all that the museum has to offer. The design is ...

I loved this animation! The video was made by Cartoon Brew, and its a story about a detective intent on capturing the elusive murderer known as the “Butcher”. So when he hears a scream from his appartment, his imagination runs rampant as he creates a story in his mind that is far from reality. I wont say much more because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I will say this, the character of ...

This hilarious clip is a must watch. It’s a cartoon style Harry Potter parody in which Stodoe Studios, show the wonderful world of witchcraft and wizardry but with a dark yet humorous twist. Keep in mind that the video is a bit, well, bloody. But in a funny way not the spill your guts, blow your mind, make you wish you could erase the image from your mind, type of bloody. I’ve watched this at least five ...

Here’s the breakdown from the resort’s website: “Alila Villas Soori combines stunning contemporary design, blissful comforts and Bali’s stunning landscape to offer ...

This song has been out for a while, but I figured with the extreme heat we’ve been having here in Kuwait we could all use a bit of dessert rain. The song is by Edward Maya which you probably all know already, the beats and vocals are so smooth they almost put you in a trance. Its strange how the added an almost irish feel to the song but whats even stranger is that it ...

We at Chuknum always appreciate services and products in Kuwait especially when they are developed by young individuals outside the boundaries of a company. Anyway, a new website called “Photo Lenders” has just been launched by the talented Kuwaiti photographer Khalid Al-Abdulghafoor. The idea of this business is simple, instead of buying supplies for photo shooting, you can just rent them. Anything from high end lenses to lighting, photo lenders can offer you these supplies at ...

I love it when photographers think of things in a different way, like using photography to expose new dimensions and at the same time raise questions. This project called “You are What you Eat” is a clever approach by Mark Menjivar where he for three years travelled the world to capture a shot of refrigerators. Basically, he meets with different people from different backgrounds and with different professions, then goes and snaps a photo of their ...

This web show never gets old, a new video every week of kids reacting to a video sometimes viral, funny or just plain weird. Regardless, it is always fun to see what kids think of and who or what is going on. This time around, the kids are shown the recent movie trailer of Captain America where as expected, we get different responses from different kids and that really helps us get a sense how they ...
