this whole thing is made by one person.

Proper level of dedication to a craft.

It kinda shows what can be done when resources are finite. When you start getting limitless budget/resources etc the art suffers as no restraint tends to be shown.

Same with, if you will allow me, the filming of Aliens. Proper tight budget and restrictions made people get super resourceful with what they could get. The queen alien fight scene with Ripley/powerloader is done completely in-camera. It took 16 people to operate the queen, it was supported by a crane AND had two puppeteers inside it to operate the arms. Watch it back now and it still looks awesome. No cgi, no digital alteration post shooting - all in camera. Crazy skills.

Just like Asartes, in the sense that Asartes is pretty much perfect, as the dood behind it knows exactly what to do with what he has.

Ooh good thread. I need to sort out my youtube subscriptions so it stops recommending me so much rubbish I'm not actually interested in. I get way too many makeup recommendations and I am quite through my phase of watching those videos! Apart from a few I still like. I think I need to focus more on plant videos.

My fave subscriptions are:

Plants:
Planterina - all about houseplants - she's amazing and quite funny
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUIdHDKQIy-vr-D7M6KuRUQ

Becca De La Plants - more house plant life
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfiOxQP5-8kUhC95cwgc4NQ


Cleaning:
Clean my space - OBSESSED RIGHT NOW
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGozdt7Wbd15k7dWhvlmLUw


Makeup/skincare:
Hindash - amazing makeup artist and quite soothing videos
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs7hbbgJFer2AcKtwAV5Bwg

Jeffree Star - absolute guilty pleasure I love watching his videos.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkvK_5omS-42Ovgah8KRKtg

Jackie Aina - amazing and makes me laugh so much
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzJIliq68IHSn-Kwgjeg2AQ
