Here's a bit of silly humor as we're winding down the workweek: if you're a photography enthusiast who has fond memories of playing Pokemon Snap during the days of the Nintendo 64, then you might enjoy this humorous fake trailer by Gritty Reboots, which takes popular movies, TV shows, video games and turns them into cinematic trailers.

This one imagines what a live-action Pokemon Snap movie would be like.

An Intense Hollywood Trailer Recreated with Cardboard, an iPhone, and a DSLR

Dustin McLean of DustFilms creates extremely low-budget remakes of Hollywood trailers and movie scenes using items and equipment that you may already have lying around at home. The above is a shot-for-shot remake of the Iron Man 3 trailer that was created at home without any computer-generated visual effects added in. McLean simply used good ol' fashioned creativity to remake shots that cost Hollywood millions of dollars to create.

Chasing Ice: Photog Captures Changes in Glaciers Through Time-Lapse Photos

Here's the amazing official trailer for the upcoming documentary film Chasing Ice, which follows one man as he embarks on an epic photo project around the world:

In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth's changing climate.

[...] Chasing Ice is the story of one man's mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers.

[...] It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.

As we shared back in March, Balog created his epic time-lapse videos by placing 27 Nikon D200 DSLRs around the world, setting each of them to snap 8,000 photos a year.

John Chiara and His Amazing Trailer-Sized Camera

John Chiara is a San Francisco-based photographer that uses an uber-large format camera the size of a trailer that he constructed himself. The camera is so dang big that setting up the thing requires a car jack and lots of yanking. After setting up the film inside the camera, Chiara climbs out of the camera through a long black garbage-bag style tube. To develop the prints, he uses an 18-inch diameter sewage pipe that he pours chemicals into and rolls around on the ground.
