The Third and the Seventh

This video is engimatic, epic, and escapes the ordinary at lightspeed velocity. There is some background music, and now and then things in the film get a little surreal. Mostly it's just stunning. I strongly recommend fullscreening it for maximum effect.

If you haven't seen it before, it's also possibly the best twelve minutes and twenty-nine seconds of video you'll watch this year. Those who haven't seen it might also want to visit the filmmaker's Vimeo page (link below) to read about how he made it. That will be the second stunner.

    Absolutely stunning. Thanks for sharing this.

    That imagery will stick with me for quite a bit.

  2. Sorry, I didn't like it. There's too much blurry photography in it. It made me want to reach for my glasses except they were already on my face. I couldn't even finish the video the blurry imagery was bothering me so bad. Blurry is not stunning nor cool nor good art. No thank you to these filmmakers for making me feel visually impaired (more than I already am).

  3. Unbelievably beautiful. Sort of the opposite of Koyannisqatsi. Thank you so much.
