    Nice!

    [nitpick] The dimensions of the 2001 Space Odyssey monoliths are supposed to be exactly 1:4:9, not 2:4:8 [/nitpick]

      haha yea i was thinking it would have been amazing to have skewed the dimensions to match the monolith and insert it into a recreation of the monkeys scene.

    this is so slick! i wish i made this :(

  • Chris C.

    Yeah, it looks like 1:4:9 for sure. I don’t know where the writer got 2:4:8 from.

      i got the dimensions directly from his website. i don’t know how the dimensions could be 2x4x8 but that’s what the website says!

    So far past the age of magnetic video, it’s a surprise someone hasn’t done this before. Anyway: awesome.
