The message is everything. (via Daring Fireball)
The spoken word is brilliant. The animation is equally brilliant. It improvises, moves, thinks like it were alive. No specific style but a series of connections. This should be played in every classroom.
This is an incredible series. These were my favorites:
Fightclub in the Silicon Valley.
Portraits of the men that volunteer to patrol the borders. Controversial but they need to be heard.
California is a Place website where you will find more great content.
There have been a lot of wonderful video portraits of NYC, this is one of my favorites.
The first half is so haunting. Lovely lovely work. Using multiple channels/screens can be tiresome but this adds up. No image or screen trumps the other, they work together in unison.
Watch it (that link will surely change so it will need updating).
A stalwart cupcake yearning to find something beyond his world of sugar cube skyscrapers and frosting-covered friends. When his makeshift boat crashes on foreign shores, he makes a shocking discovery that changes him forever.
A stop animated short film by Kirsten Lepore.
Watch Sweet Dreams.

I spent a morning with photographer Kathleen Connally several years back. We talked, we walked. I came back hoping to put something together immediately but life got a little crazy and I had to put it aside. Till now.
Many of things we discussed that misty morning still come back to me from time to time. I think Kathleen has one of the healthiest perspectives on her art & her work. She loves what she does, she has a purpose and she is comfortable with her talent.

An animated short from Norway about three cavemen and their savage hunt for uh… a mammoth with butterfly wings!
Watch it. (Flash Video)
A textbook for future horror film set designers.
Gorgeous cinematography that hints at social change. Somewhere between heaven, hell & quiet meditation.
Amazingly, the title actually says all you need to know.
Enjoy! (needs: Flash)
One of the great American movies available in full for US viewers.
