It takes a special kind of masochist to carry around the behemoth that is a large format camera. One such person is Joseph Allen Freeman, a photographer working in the 8 x 10 format. In the short film Through the Ground Glass, by Nick Bolton and Taylor Hawkins, we hear Freeman ruminate about the trials and romanticism of the age-old process.
If you’re a fan of hip hop or electronic music, you’ve heard that sick, signature beat of the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer. Heck, if you’re a fan of music in general you’ve probably heard it, because the 808 is the most famous drum machine ever made. And now it has its own documentary.

James Cameron showed us new worlds in films like Avatar and The Abyss. So it’s no wonder that the filmmaker would want to explore the one we actually live in. Deepsea Challenge 3D chronicles his journey to the greatest depths of the ocean — thanks to an incredible sub that Gizmodo recently had a chance to see up close.
Forget FIFA. Forget the Olympics. This is way more serious. This is real-life Quidditch. (Yes, that game they play on broomsticks in Harry Potter).
Earlier this year, the internet was collectively tickled at the reports of how NASA was conducting the recovery of some of the first photos of the moon inside an abandoned McDonald’s. This new video takes a closer look at how this surreal research lab came to be.
