Sketches & Links Week 3

This link takes a look at a question I had never really asked myself before – why people don’t smile in old photos:

Someone on posted a link on Facebook to a vault that I have seen several documentaries on. I love this kind of thing, it is straight out of a sci-fi movie and it fuels my imagination and really gets my interest:

There is also something called the “Immortality Drive” (as well as various other names) on the international space station that contains digitized human DNA sequences. Fun stuff.

This is the basic outline for the video I wish to create. I may end up doing something completely different. I typically storyboard using actual media by placing it in a rough outline in my software so this process was a bit odd to me.
