Kirby Ferguson has done an outstanding job on each of the four episodes of this piece. Great stuff no matter how you come down on the copyright issue(s).
Amazing stills and video of snowy owls by Gerrit Vyn.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films produced and directed by Ben Wu and David Usui that explore the idea of home.
The three films they have up now are excellent, each in its own way.
I love this guy, he’s the John Muir (How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive) of the treehouse world.
This documentary takes a while but its well worth it. Garnier and his little Jack Russell terrier are treasures.

Common cranes fly over Venice, Italy. Amazing BBC footage. Zoom out, it’s worth it.

Upper Cut Productions was commissioned by BAM Nuttall and Network Rail to film a rail bridge reconstruction project in Reading, during the Christmas period of 2011.
3 weather-proofed time lapse cameras were installed in various locations to capture the progress of the new bridge construction – they took nearly 1/4million photographs over a 6 month period.
Following the short video of the bridge move between 24.12.11 and 28.12.11, this video reveals the full project from the bridge construction to the site clearance after New Year.
This is one of the best time lapse videos of anything I’ve ever seen. What an incredible construction job, building the bridge and moving it. And the fact that they used multiple cameras and wove the time lapse together so beautifully does justice to the amazing construction job. Wow.
Incredible. What an uplifting video. Go Wimpy.
The Glass House happens to be in my backyard (New Canaan, Connecticut) and I’ve never been there. This is a nice piece at core77 on restoring and preserving a Donald Judd concrete sculpture that’s installed on the 47 acre grounds.
