Sneezing Panda Baby – The Movie


(Youtube Direktpanda, via Geekosystem)

X-Posting von Nerdcore: Ihr kennt das Video oben, Internet-Meme und Netzklassiker, im Augenblick, wo ich das hier tippe, wurde das Ding 106.868.435 mal angesehen, laut Geekosystem das 45st beliebteste Video auf Youtube. Und bald gibt’s das niesende Pandababy im Kino.

Lesley Hammond und Jenny Walsh, aus deren 1999er Doku über Riesenpandas in China der Clip stammt, produzieren eine Mockumentary namens „The Life and Times of Sneezing Baby Panda“ mit einem Budget von 1,3 Mio. Dollar, Dreharbeiten beginnen im Herbst. Die Rechte an den Sequels „Dramatic Chipmunk strikes back“ und „Return of the Rickroll“ sowie den Spinoffs „How I learned to love Britney and she left me alone“, „Trollolo in the Rain“ und „The Silence of the LOLCats“ haben sie sich entgegen aller Gerüchte noch nicht gesichert.

Internet-Memes, coming to a Cinema near you. I break together. Snip vom Hollywood-Reporter:

The Life and Times of Sneezing Baby Panda is an upcoming mockumentary made for the big screen by Lesley Hammond and Jenny Walsh, Australian wildlife documentarians whose 1999 film about the giant pandas of China produced a viral video clip they’re now turning into a feature film.

The $1.3 million co-production, set to start shooting in China in October with Zhejiang Roc Pictures of Hangzhou, will follow an Australian zoologist whose zoo faces financial difficulties she thinks she might solve if she travels to China to save the black and white fuzzy sneezer whose (real life) video clip still gets more than 150,000 hits per day. […]

Riffing on the Chinese penchant for going way, way back when telling one’s family story, Hammond decided to employ the techniques used in Forrest Gump or Woody Allen’s Zelig before that to place the ancestors of the Sneezing Baby Panda in crucial roles throughout history.

“One panda’s a terracotta warrior. Another’s on the Long March,” said Hammond, who with former Nine Network news producer Walsh dug through archival footage they’ll incorporate into the film. “You know the famous photo of Nixon sitting with Mao? Using visual effects, we’ll replace the woman interpreter sitting between them with a panda.”

    Danke dafür, ich kannte das niesende Panda-Baby noch nicht. <3
    Die Filmidee ist natürlich völliger Schwachsinn. Offenbar hat da jemand das falsche Zeug geraucht.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
