* Van Ling was a nerdy film school graduate who loved sci-fi, especially the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series. Around the time that ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' was released, he and two film school buddies built a working power loader costume that could be operated by one person, and was completely mobile. Creator/JamesCameron's then-wife, Gale Anne Hurd, heard about Ling's project, and had him demonstrate it in the 20th Century Fox parking lot, and eventually referred him to Cameron himself, who hired Ling as a creative liaison and researcher for ''Film/TheAbyss''. He would go on to play a large part in many of Cameron's projects, including design and visual effects work for ''Terminator2JudgmentDay''.

* Website/YouTube personality {{Tobuscus}} wrote the immensely popular ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'' [[WithLyrics Literal Trailer]], which got more views than the original and attracted the attention of Ubisoft, which paid for him to go to E3 2011 and interview the ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'' development team. As a result of this, he is now a featured performer at gaming conventions, and his fame has also landed him a voice acting gig.
