Startup: Stop Motion Engine Rebuild

What started out as an engine rebuild turned into something else completely. After buying an engine off ebay, this guy had the foresight to take pictures of the engine as he disassembled it to make sure he could put it back together again. Then he realized it would also make for a great stop motion animation. 11 months later, he had a video to share. Be sure to watch all the way to the horrifying end. Video after the jump.

Startup: Luxo Jr.

It’s not just about getting into costume, it’s also about getting into character! Unfortunately for this guy, someone shortly thereafter got into character as a Disney/Pixar lawyer and sued him into the stone age.

Startup: Rescued from the Ashes

Back in Web 1.0, we didn’t have all these social fluff sites to occupy our time. No-sir-ee, all we had was academia, awkward attempts at brands to leverage this web thing, and true original humor sites.
