Here are some big cats facts: an adult lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles away – in one stride, a cheetah can cover 23 to 26 feet – a tiger’s stripes are like fingerprints, no two animals have the same pattern – and so on. The motive behind Big Cats Week is to remind people how extraordinary wild felines are, and to remind that they are endangered.

I never had the pleasure before to work on a more simple creative idea, but at the same such a powerful one exactly because of its simplicity.

PRODUCTION NOTES

One of the scenes required the cat (which sadly was given no name because it’s just a commodity of the company we rented it from, apparently – so we called him Houdini because he kept wanting to sneak out of his cage) had to fall asleep. We were instructed by the wrangler to wait to shoot that scene after he had been fed, because that’s when they usually take a nap. So we fed Houdini as much food as it could take, and then we placed it on a chair and, well, waited. I am not kidding when I say we had to wait almost an hour for him to fall asleep, and even then he would wake up at ANY DAMN THING that made a sound, even a mosquito flying, for god sake. Anyway, yes Houdini, you get away with everything because of your cute little face uh? 

As we’ve found as of late, chaep replica watches brands are making Replica Hublot Swiss Made a special effort to accomplish new records in slimness, as well as in the level of entanglement and multifaceted nature that they pack into those super-thin developments and cases. Here are seven late illustrations of timepieces that (at any rate for the occasion) have set records for slenderness in their individual classifications.

World’s Thinnest Minute Repeater (Current)

Presented at Baselworld 2016, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, now asserts the title of littlest striking cheap fake watches available, a title that had been held already by Jaeger-LeCoultre (see underneath). Striking swiss replica watches convey a few particular development limitations, and require an abnormal state of mastery to accomplish the testing objective of a serious, completely clear replique montre de luxe ring with a uniform, reliable rhythm when the component is initiated. Normally, such a tag heuer replica watches for sale watch replica watches has a tendency to be on the huge side, because of the requirement for adequately liberal inside volume for ideal dissemination of the sound inside of the case, in this manner guaranteeing perfect acoustic quality. Bulgari, be that as it may, set out to accomplish this “immaculate sound” inside of the littlest conceivable space. To this end, the brand built up the in-house BVL Caliber 362, which measures only 3.12 mm thick, and made a case whose general thickness is just 6.85 mm. The case is made of titanium, whose low-thickness properties turned replique montre out to be fabulous for sound dispersion. Another sharp touch was the removed hour-markers on the dial (additionally made of titanium) and cut-out ring around the little seconds subdial, which made openings Replica Tag Heuer that serve to enhance the reverberation inside the case and in this manner enhance the sound impact. More detail on that watch can be found here.
