This is absolutely fascinating. Somehow black and white film doesn’t seem quite ‘real’ but when you see images from the past in colour, it’s like a little piece of time travel. In 1927 Claude Friese-Greene shot some of the first-ever color film footage around London. He captured everyday life in the city with a technique innovated by his father, called Biocolour.

The first video is the genuine article, a reminder that we are more beautiful than we think we are. A good lesson in this world of body image and how we perceive ourselves. The other videos… well they are just for fun! 🙂

There is something so utterly charming about stop frame animation. Reminds me of days watching Trumpton or Camberwick Green as a child.
This animation – Gulp is the world’s largest stop-motion animation shot on a Nokia N8 using its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. The film has broken a world record for the ‘largest stop-motion animation set’, with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet…
