French director Thomas Jullien assembled 852 separate images from 852 different Instagrammers, and made a movie. It’s pretty cool. See any of your pictures in there? An Instagram short film from Thomas Jullien on Vimeo.

Guy Benson from Townhall.com has compiled a list of the 12 most damning revelations from yesterday’s hearing. There’s a good chance you didn’t hear much of this because the lamestream media was focusing on Jodi Arias (whoever the hell she is) and the Cleveland thing (newsworthy, but hardly more important than our current administration’s blatant […]

I’ve recently discovered Vine, a social app for iPhone that allows you to take six-second videos and share them. There’s some really creative people out there. Check it out when you get a chance. Here’s one I made recently:

Great tilt-shift time lapse video of Singapore by Keith Loutit. Some really neat effects in this, on top of the always-interesting look of tilt-shift. The Lion City from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.

This is great. These folks have a Go-Pro camera set up, and a seagull steals it and carries it away. Obviously, the owners were able to locate it, or you wouldn’t be watching this. Story here

If you don’t, the seas will fill with oil, and all our stuff will be made in China. This would have made Kim Jong Il proud.

I stumbled across this in the right column of YouTube, while looking at something else.

Videographer Paul Wex takes a trip to Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean just northeast of Madagascar. He also composed and performed the music. Nice. Big Little World from Paul Wex on Vimeo.

This is kinda weird. You know everything is upside down, and your brain wants to turn it around. I had to watch the whole thing.

This is beautiful. I like these time-lapse videos in general, but this is very good. There are some awesome shots of clouds changing color as the sun sets, and great views of the Milky Way. He does great still photography, too; check him out on Flickr

You may have seen this, as it has been getting play all over the place, from the internet to TV. What a cool idea; though it took a long time to come to fruition. I wish I’d had the foresight to do this with my children.

This is…mesmerizing. The coolest things, to me, are the aurora borealis and the lightning storms flashing as the space station whizzes by. Watch it in HD on a full screen, if you can.

This video by Mael Sevestre is a short story about a photographer who heads to the woods to take some photos. While he’s there, something unusual happens. This was shot entirely on an iPhone 4S. The quality is surprisingly good. I wonder if the creator used some sort of stabilizing device to get such steady […]

Not sure what to make of this, but it’s interesting.

Good stuff I saw this morning: Popehat: Caylee Anthony’s Useful Idiots Reason: Global Temperature Trend Update for July 2011 – I found this interesting because of the comments section. No analysis was presented with this information, and defenders of both sides of the AGW argument proceeded to stand on soapboxes and shout at the other […]

A short from fireapple films in Germany about how we’ve become disconnected from the animals and nature. Somber, and a little weird.
