Brenda, Bre Pettis (Make:), and myself (nougref.com) ventured to "Earth sanctuary" http://www.earthsanctuary.org/ again to see if we could one up the last forest chain reaction we all saw. Discovery Channel Canada followed us with their cameras, but never got the whole thing working on film. These are the shots that did work... after they left.
Watch this video! Its very stimulating!
Now watch the first angle synched with Bre's second angle (he shot from the other side of the contraption) The angles are both on screen for a double wide view of the action.
(It's SUPER WIDE SCREEN!)
Now watch it in reverse speed, it becomes amusing!
The original idea was that rocks would get pulled from these platforms each with a longer piece of twine between it and its brother. Unfortunatly they kept flying out of their knots and we reduced the number of rocks.
Since people always ask where we got those rocks...We got them from a rock store also known as a "Rockery" and some we discovered out in the woods. Bre's dad bought them all because he thought the idea of a chain reaction happening at earth sanctuary was very cool.
