Morning Open Thread – “The Old New World” Photo-based Animation Project

Morning Open Thread is an open discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From seccovan, “travel back in time with a little steampunk time machine.”

Stills and behind the scenes


This is a daily open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
Morning Open Thread will be set to post at (or about) 6:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time. For those on international or military times, that is 1030 Zulu Time.

Coffee cup

This is Morning Open Thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair, sit a spell and share what’s on your mind today.

    Very impressive. I enjoyed the Wellsian opening, with strong echoes of the steam punk movement. An interesting choice of music, too. Al Bowlly was quite simply a genius. Sadly, he died far too young, killed by a Luftwaffe parachute mine in the London Blitz. These marine weapons were wildly inaccurate, of course, but were used for their terrible blast effects when detonated on land – Bowlly is buried in a mass grave. I think few realise that over 67,000 U.K civilians died during WW2.

    I enjoyed this item – thanks Chuck.

  2. You’re welcome, shortfinals! I am helping Chuck get Morning Open Thread going until there are more folks contributing. Hint, hint. 🙂 (I so miss you lovely posts.)

  3. I saw this video pop up in my stream a few days ago, but not gotten around to watching until now. Truly impressive digital image magic. Made me go look at more of seccovan’s videos.

    He is a gifted artist and filmmaker.
