100 Jahre Universal: Restoring the Classics – A Lifetime of Memories

Schöner Clip von Universal, die zu ihrem hundertsten Geburtstag ein paar Klassiker restaurieren und in diesem Video ein paar Einblicke in den Prozess geben. Restauriert werden im Laufe des Jahres: All Quiet on the Western Front, The Birds, Buck Privates, Dracula (1931), Dracula Spanish (1931), Frankenstein, Jaws, Schindler’s List, Out of Africa, Pillow Talk, Bride of Frankenstein, The Sting und To Kill a Mockingbird.

Außerdem haben sie sich ein Tumblelog zum Jubiläum angeschafft, auf dem sie unter anderem die Geschichte ihres Logos erzählen:

Legend has it that Carl Laemmle named the company after seeing a “Universal Pipe Fittings” truck pass by his New York office window. Though our name may have been inspired by a whim, today Universal is considered a pioneer in cinematic history. Our logo symbolizes the films we’ve created which have not only impacted millions, but also helped tell the story of filmmaking.

The Universal logo has gone on to change over the years since 1912. From the silent logo of UNIVERSAL FILMS encircling the globe…to the ‘droning propeller plane circling the globe’ that marked the arrival of sound…and finally, to today’s more modern and vivid Universe—the Universal logo has reflected the evolution of film.

    Als ZidZ III im Kino lief hat Universal die alten Logos nochmals gezeigt, freu mich schon auf den ersten Film von Universal 2012, dass neue Logo in Bewegung zu sehen.

    Ich hoffe auf viele Klassiker (Dracula, Der Unsichtbare) restauriert auf Blu-ray)!

    PS: Das neue Paramount (100th Anniversary) findet man schon bei YT.

    mir gefiel das farbige oben rechts immer am besten ^^ das neue kann sich auch sehen lassen.

    Muss mich wohl noch an das Logo gewöhnen. Momentan sieht es mir noch ein Tick zu steril und billig aus. So sci-fi channel mässig.
    Mal abwarten wie es in Bewegung aussieht.

    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.”
