It’s finally here! Adam, Norm, and Will discuss Star Wars: The Force Awakens in this extra-long Spoiler-filled episode of Still Untitled. We talk about our favorite scenes, theories about the characters, and things that surprised us. Let us know what you thought about the movie in the comments!
The Holochess animation Easter egg in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was truly a labor of love, and the team who made it used a variety of interesting technologies to create it. This week, we return to Tippett Studio to chat with this sequence’s art director, visual effects supervisor, armaturist, and head puppet fabricator (our very own Frank Ippolito!) about the fabrication of these stop-motion puppets!

The universe collapses again as it ends up being Sean and Norm at the builders table working on the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon. We’re so close to finishing! Thanks to everyone who stuck along with us for this build, and we’ll see you in the new year with more Tested Builds and LEGO with Friends! Let us know in the comments what projects you’d like us to take on!
The Falcon just needs a few more panels and the corridor to the cockpit to be fully operational, and Jeremy’s LEGO computer build is coming along great. Plus, we share stories of past Christmases, including our most memorable gifts. We’re almost done! Follow along by signing up for the Tested Premium member community!
A Christmas miracle! We’re going to finally finish this thing. Jeremy Williams sits in to give Norm and Sean some encouragement and support to complete the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon build. Plus, this episode was filmed before any of us had seen the new Star Wars movie, so it’s spoiler-free! Follow along by signing up for the Tested Premium member community!
For the second-to-last podcast of the year, Norm is joined by Jeremy Williams and special guest Steve Lin to geek out on pinball games and old arcade technology. We talk about Space X’s historic rocket landing, the complexity of smartphone cameras, and camping 24 days for Episode I. Plus, the VR minute and what we’ve been testing. Just one more sleep until Christmas!
Frank and Norm finish their anglerfish automata fish builds ahead of schedule! The finished kits look awesome, and we can’t wait to work on the next kit. There’s still more for this week, so come back tomorrow for a fitting way to end this year’s premium content. Follow along by signing up for the Tested Premium member community!
This week’s build is coming along swimmingly! Wiring the Anglerfish automata kit together gives us plenty of time to chat about random topics, like classic monster and horror movies! (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
On our recent trip to Alcatraz, we recorded two episodes of Still Untitled in front of a live audience. This second episode features a very special guest: Dr. David Miller, NASA’s Chief Technologist. Dr. Miller joins us to talk about the search for Earth-like planets, NASA Spinoffs, and the technological challenges of space exploration. He also shares some weird astronaut stories! (Thanks so much to NASA, Dr. Dave Miller, the US Parks Service, and the Bay Area Science Festival for making this episode possible.)
Frank and Norm continue to layer paint on their Anglerfish Automata model kits, and being to figure out how the pieces get wired together. (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
