    For many scifi fans, "Larry Niven" is a well-known name. Since 1964 he has published numerous science fiction novels and continues to author and co-author books to this day. With a background in mathematics and psychology, Niven's books have earned the Nebula, Hugo, and Locus awards. His best known novel is Ringworld. He has written scripts for Land of the Lost series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, and The Outer Limits. In the science fiction fandom there is something known as "Niven's Law": There is no cause so right that one cannot find a fool following it. There was a definite sense of awe among the audience that came to see him at Dragon Con, and I was very pleased that I was able to make it into the crowded panel. Enjoy.

      This video is dedicated to Larry Niven, who once said, "It had to happen", and to Wendell Berry, who should it happen, could lead you back home. Yes, Harlan Hubbard is in here too, and Rachel Carson, and Ray Bradbury, and Issac Asimov. (Harlan Ellison, and Micheal Barnsley, a further salute). These are the folks who aren't surprised that asteroids hit the planet earth, and who don't treat the planet earth like they're an asteroid. Song and vocals by Brian, Drums, recording, production and remixing by Tom, movie by Brian.

        Not sure if this will be the end result, but here the animation I made with Blender for the Scifi competition of Blender Guru. I participated because I wanted to see what Blender is capable of regarding handling footage and animation and how I can use it in my work. Although I will still do the major part of editing in After Effects after this, I really like the way, for example, how Blender handles keying.

          This is a demonstration promotional video based on a book property written by Larry Niven. The objective was to entice investors to help produce a video game, film and/or television series based on the concept. I wrote, directed and edited the project.

            This is the first installment of Castor and Pollux Video Monday! Our first video features the song "Inconstant Moon" which is the third track off the first Castor & Pollux E.P. Wake Up! This song is named after and inspired by the Larry Niven short story with the same name. In Inconstant Moon, Stan and Leslie wake up early one night and figure out that the World Is Going to End via being destroyed by a large solar flare. Thus the story is about a man and a woman deciding what to do with their last few precious hours alive on Earth. It's awesome story, check it out. All three of these videos were recorded at Global Cafe in Logan Square Chicago. Special Thanks To: Global Cafe and Michael Cittadino: Filming/Editing Christina Cadilla: Filming You can find more on Castor and Pollux here at our website http://castorandpolluxband.com/ You can talk with us on facebook and twitter here http://www.facebook.com/castorandpolluxmusic https://twitter.com/#!/castorNpollux

                  All the Mysteries of Human Existence - Explained in One Movie. What if you asked the spiritual leaders, gurus, scientists, artists, and everyday people of the world why we exist, and what are we supposed to do about it? What started the Universe, and was it a mistake? Does God exist, and why does he seem so interested in our sex lives? After exploring the phenomenon of STAR TREK fans in the acclaimed documentary TREKKIES, filmmaker Roger Nygard is taking on THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE, traveling the globe to the source of the world's philosophies, religions, and belief systems, interviewing spiritual leaders, scholars, scientists, artists and others who have influenced, inspired, or freaked out humanity, such as: Indian holy man Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (The Art of Living), evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), 24th generation Chinese Taoist Master Zhang Chengda, Stanford physicist Leonard Susskind (co-discoverer of string theory), wrestler Rob Adonis (founder of Ultimate Christian Wrestling), confrontational evangelist Brother Jed Smock, novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game), director Irvin Kershner (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back), Stonehenge Druids Rollo Maughfling & King Arthur Pendragon and many more... How would YOU answer the questions? What journey is more important than one that takes us closer to finding meaning in our existence?
