It’s Wednesday, which means the week is almost over (hooray!). The hot, summery weather of last week has dropped back to the 30 degree chill of a Vermont spring, and it’s gray, gray, gray outside. Blech.
To lighten the mood, my sister emailed me this video the other night, and I’ve probably watched it about seventeen times. It’s the cutest most cheery little thing ever and is sure to help you get through the rest of this dreary week!
Be well, and take care : )
It’s 2:45 in the morning – what else to do but watch YouTube videos?
This is “Gulp,” a stop motion film created by Sumo Science at Aardman Animations (the Wallace and Gromit people) as part of an ad campaign for Nokia. What’s cool about it is that it’s the largest stop motion animation film – that’s a real boat they’re using! They created the film using the Nokia N8′s 12 megapixel camera, mounted atop a cherry picker. The largest scene stretched a whopping 11,000 square feet. Below is a video that goes behind the scenes of how they made the animation on a South Wales beach – definitely worth a watch!
What I love about this video aside from it’s insane coolness is that it shows no matter how big an undertaking is, it can still be done. Just look what these people accomplished! Amazing.
I wanted to leave you a little video message to prove that 1) I’m a real person, and 2) that I’m dedicated to this blog and to helping people with lymphedema feel less alone. I’m sorry that I kind of ramble a lot.. this was filmed on a Sunday morning (like an hour before this was posted!), and I didn’t have any written notes about what I wanted to say. This is from the heart, so be kind! :)
