10/5/12: Cool Stuff We Found This Week Friday 05 October, 2012
This week’s installment of Cool Stuff We Found This Week is pretty video-heavy, so turn your speakers up or get your headphones ready!
First up is an “old” video that we rediscovered a few days ago. You’ve probably heard about “Cirrus Quell,” a fan film being produced by teen filmmaker Joshua Chislett (check out his YouTube channel to learn more). Well, back in October of 2011, Joshua released an incredible short called “Katniss and the Careers” which follows Katniss as she destroys the Careers’ food and discovers that Rue has been trapped. Given that “Katniss and the Careers” is entirely fan-made, the acting and special effects are pretty spectacular.
Next up is a fan-made Hunger Games music video featuring clips from the various trailers set to “Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire (a song that should be familiar to all of you by now!). Reagan Fabry is the creator, and we’re especially impressed with the way she edited the last 60 seconds or so.
This next video is so awesome we’re shocked it doesn’t have more views! DJ Doubletake has made a dubstep version of “Abraham’s Daughter.” Yes, you heard us correctly. Listen and prepare to have your mind blown.
Lastly, we we wanted to let you all know about a series of contests that some of our fan site friends are running. Both Mockingjay.net and HungerGamesTrilogy.net will be giving away three copies of The Unofficial Recipes of The Hunger Games over the next three weeks. This is a new Hunger Games cookbook featuring 187 recipes inspired by the series, from groosling legs and Prim’s goat cheese to lamb stew and Greasy Sae’s stuffed possum (ew!).

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
