This marvelous video called Nuance brings together practical movement and post-production.
28-year-old Marinus from the Netherlands has been making these animated GIFs, I presume to make the point that animated GIFs are not just awesome and funny, but awesome and more awesome.

Mexico-based architecture student Alan Betancourt has done project of logos for already well-known scientists. Reminds me of one of my favorite T-Shirts out there from the Monsters of Grok (scientists and philosopher Concert T-Shirts).
Even though the title ("Screengrab") explains the technique, I still am scratching my head. So impressive. And a reminder it's no the tools that lead to creativity.
Award-winning... damn straight. Moving, fun, lovely.
I don't know what this is or how to explain it. Its effect however is mesmerizing. Expressive, engaging, gorgeous and visually stunning.
Flawed Symmetry of Prediction is an outstanding short film by filmmaker Jeff Frost:
"I roam the deserts of California and Utah looking for abandoned structures. When I find a room that I like, I paint large scale optical illusions on the inside of it. I record this process with time lapse photography. It took me over half a year and more than 40,000 high resolution still images to produce this film on my Canon 60D. Aside from painting supplies, the only other equipment I used was a borrowed tripod, and some pretty unconventional lighting. As post production goes, no graphics or CGI was used whatsoever."
Photographer Evan Kitaljevich writes,
This was honestly my first attempt at making a time-lapse. I downloaded/figured out LRtimelapse (the trial version) in the afternoon then went out around sunset to shoot [...] Pan and zoom were added in post [...] To anyone who wants to try this, my best advice is to use a really sturdy (possibly weighed down) tripod. I wish I had one, because shooting with a GorillaPod in a bit of wind made the camera shake between frames. I used the AE warp stabilizer to try and smooth it out, but it still looks a bit weird and wobbly.
Both deer and skateboarder were okay thankfully.
