I’ve been posting time-lapse videos for a while now, and while I wouldn’t say I’m jaded, it does take something special to catch my attention these days. Michael Shainblum got my attention. Using shots of the night sky as well as in an urban setting, he put together an extraordinary collection of scenes in his video, “Existence.”
Original Project Description: This short time-lapse video is called EXISTENCE. The video is a statement not only about time and progression, but also a statement about the world we have created for ourselves. The basis of the video contrasts the two extremes of life itself: the urban metropolis, and the beauty outside the city. I love to stargaze. Watching the milky-way float across the sky is one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever felt.

Le Petit Prince, Photo Series Imagines an Ordinary Life for a Boy with Muscular Dystrophy. In the heartwarming photo series “Le Petit Prince,” 12-year-old Lukas is depicted leading the active life of an ordinary boy: playing basketball, skateboarding, and so on—all activities he cannot perform in real life due to muscular dystrophy.

Luca is a very special little boy who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Photographer Matej Peljhan came up with a very creative way to make Luca appear as if he is in motion.

The boy, Luka suffers from Muscular Dystrophy (which has confined him to a wheelchair) and photographer Matej Peljhan (whom himself suffered injuries at age 10 from some explosive devices, scattered around during the World War II that left him without an arm or eye) set out to create an imaginary world for Luka where he could skateboard, play basketball, even scuba dive.

Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling: 1. You admire a character for trying more than for their successes. 2. You gotta keep in mind what’s interesting to you as an audience, not what’s fun to do as a writer. They can be very different. 3. Trying for theme is important, but you won’t see what the story is actually about til you’re at the end of it. Now rewrite. 4. Once upon a time there was ___. Every day, ___. One day ___. Because of that, ___. Because of that, ___. Until finally ___....

jon Negroni spent one year untangling the secret world hidden deep within Pixar films. This thesis originally appeared on his personal blog and quickly became a viral sensation. Negroni continues to update his post based on interesting feedback from readers.Several months ago, I watched a fun-filled video on Cracked.com that introduced the idea (at least to me) that all of the Pixar movies actually exist within the same universe. Since then, I’ve obsessed over this concept...the pixar theory
aw!! Best movies ever!
for the record, these are also considered disney movies. they are disney pixar movies. people gotta stop trying to tell me that toy story is not a disney movie
"Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling" These rules were originally tweeted by Emma Coates, Pixar's Story Artist. These rules are demonstrated throughout in the well-crafted Pixar movies. These rules can apply to writers in all genres.

Russian photographer Vadim Mahorov goes to death-defying heights for the perfect shot. While the thrill of scaling buildings, towers and monuments is part of the allure, the dramatic aerial landscapes Vadim captures are absolutely breathtaking. Although many are quick to lump Vadim with other youths simply looking for the rush of infiltrating places they shouldn’t be, Vadim shows a clear passion for photography.

If there is no possibility of getting underneath the surface then the answer was to photograph the surface itself.

The inaugural Tokyo Hotaru festival was held last weekend. And kicking off the festivities were an impressive display of 100,000 LED lights – made to resemble hotaru (fireflies) – that floated down the Sumida River through central Tokyo. Dubbed “prayer stars,” the LEDs were provided by Panasonic, who claims that the balls, which were designed to light up upon contact with water, were 100% powered by solar energy.
