Absolutely gripping time lapse video of Manhattan that makes me want to go back to NYC soon. I watched it three times in a row - in fullscreen HD mind you - and saw new things every time. Another great Vimeo moment.
While I realize the style of this video may be seizure-inducing for some people, S.I.T.E compresses some of humanity's worst alien, dystopian fears into five minutes or less. Creepy, cool, and captivating: give this video a chance beyond the first couple of minutes and allow things to come together. I'm half convinced I'll be subliminally craving Hot Pockets sometime this evening.
If you search for "kinetic type" on Vimeo or YouTube, you'll essentially find video with animated text. They vary in quality from flat and simple, to those like this one. Above and beyond the fact I'm a Rage Against the Machine fan, this is an incredible video that could easily stand in it's own right as an official music video. The power of words compels me!
I don't know what could attract me to a 3.5 minute video with this as the narrative: "As his planet boils in the glow of a cascading Tesseract a young femto-panda makes a brave attempt to warn the galaxy..."
This is so cool that I had to share. You may have a seizure somewhere between 1:00 and 1:30, but once you shake off the colour strobe, the experience is worth it.
A little sonic psychedelia for your enjoyment on lovehatethings whilst I spend some time in Vancouver.
A pristine 147 seconds of story-telling through the Paradise Regained equivalent of Duck Amuck. And if you understand that reference, you get a +1 FTW.
A sobering two minute look at our dependency on oil through the lens of the amount of spillage in last year's BP blowout.
"Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?"
