I couldn’t resist not posting this timelapse.
Keep your eyes fixed on those eyes, it gets trippy. This video creates a new category for itself: animation improvisation.
At times, this short reaches incredible heights. I wish it had a little more story.
This short is wonderfully ambitious with its storytelling. The underlying intent: “The larger our past gets the smaller our present feels” is given a world to live in. The animation invites you in with layers of textures and ideas.
For those who love embroidery.
A lovely textured stop motion that reaches incredible heights at certain moments. Even though I don’t speak Japanese, I felt like I understood the meaning and much of that is due to the visual language created in the video.
Full of lovely little ideas.
The power cut off in New York City after Hurricane Sandy. The video is an inside look at what it felt and looked liked.
At times, the whole scene resembles ants transporting their huge prize home. A new kind of reporting: no interviews, no set-up and timelapse says it all.
If this timelapse could play in a loop at home when I woke up every morning, I’d be a happier man. I know, I know, you have seen so many timelapse videos, you are on an official boycott. Give this video a chance. It will be worth your time.
The nightmare of losing well.
Timelapse from the International Space Station. Not the intent of the filmmakers but I’m reminded how delicate our little ball of earth is. Lovely montage of source material from NASA.
Some of the over top performances are the best parts of this short.
