I Am Not Your Grandma — But She Might Be

I REALLY like this video. It was a great way to start my morning. Brian Newman had tipped me to it, but it had sat in my ToWatch box too long. Glad it escaped.

Must Watch: More Projection Mapping!

Is projection mapping the greatest thing since sliced bread? How can there be film festivals these days that do not feature this? It is too cool.

Thanks to Emily Johnson for the tip!

Update: That video went down, but here’s another example of projection mapping:

Journey Around The World In Under 5 Minutes

I have long been working on a film about a man who walks around the world. Maybe the walking has been the problem. It’s slow food for a fast food world. Perhaps the film should have been this instead…

17 Countries. 343 Days. 6237 Photographs.

WARNING: this short will make you want to quit your day job and travel.

Thanks to ThisIsColossal for the tip.

Oh Yeah Wow! Great work with a great name.

Rippled from Oh Yeah Wow on Vimeo.

My friend Dan McGuire tipped me to this great video that ThisIsColossal.com sourced. Beyond being truly beautiful and incredibly well executed, the animators have a name (“Oh Yeah Wow”)I am jealous of — and that doesn’t happen too often.
