A Handful of Interesting and Entertaining Videos

I've been seeing all sorts of good video online lately, so I figured I'd share a few that caught my eye for various reasons.

The other day I stumbled across this amazing short starring the little guy in the green "WALK" sign at a crosswalk in Tokyo:






Then there's this movie that tells the story of a day in the office from the photocopy machine's point of view:

Memoirs of a Scanner (Martinibomb Version) from Damon Stea on Vimeo.

Speaking of unusual points of view; here's a gorgeous little short film shot in New York using tilt-shift lenses to make the city look like a model:



The Sandpit from Sam O'Hare on Vimeo.



I've also found a wealth of interesting project videos like this guy's timelapse and photo mashup of a two-year project to make his own R2D2:

I need one of those, but it's pretty low on my list of things to build right now. It's somewhere between the battleship and the gyrocopter.

First I have to finish building the suit of armor though. On that subject, there's a HALO prequel game coming out. The dialogue in the preview is a bit cheesed up, but the costumes look great:

The in-game clips almost make me want to run out and buy an XBOX 360. I can't though, because then I'll want to scrap my current armor project in favor of this new version of the outfit.

I also figured I should share this video, a reminder of why I love theOnion:





Obama Caught Lip-Syncing Speech



Here's an entertaining film from Patrick Boivin, one of my favorite makers of short films:

I'm pretty sure I was on that flight.

Here's another one of his that was worth chuckling at:


And if you feel like losing some sleep, here's a zombie clown movie:


There've been plenty more, but I've wasted enough of your time already.
