CYCLE SKIPPING WITH FIRE ROPE

I met this guy called Harekrishnan. He is quite famous in India for cycle skipping for long distances and even got in Indian Book of Records when he skipped for more then 100 miles non stop. Here’s a link from Indian newspaper covering his AIDS awareness stunt.

I suggested him to try it at night with a rope on fire and filmed it in a single take. It looked bizarre and beautiful at the same time. The image gets brighter when the fire gets lit.

We are currently working on some other stunts. If anyone wants to contact Harekrishnan or offer him a job, he is a cool guy and crazy enough to try anything. He lives in a village and currently doesn’t have internet access. But if you drop me a line, I will sure pass it to him.

Mushroom buildings of the future

As architects are searching for new ergonomical and eco-friendly designs , I just thought that buildings that resemble mushrooms are not such a bad idea. Nature is the best architect of all. When you look closer at a mushroom you can see that the creator has thought of every possible little detail that is ergonomically and technically perfect as well as aesthetically pleasing. In other words – there is no fault in a mushroom!

The roof surface of a mushroom shaped building is perfect for collecting solar power. So the buildings can be energy sustainable. Using the principle of natural cooling system of a mushroom is also a big advantage.
