Check This Out: An Animated Journey Through the ABC's of Cinema

ABCinema - Jurassic Park

Previously we featured a cool sort of guessing game in the form of ABC's chronicling 26 films from each decade in film all the way back to the 1960's. Now a more flashy version of the ABC's of Cinema comes in the form of ABCinema, a short journey through decades of film by each letter in the alphabet. Accompanying the cool animation is sound clips from some of your favorite films all put together by Atlanta-based freelance editor and motionographer Evan Seitz. Not every letter is easy to figure out, and the move pretty quickly. This is going to be worth a few viewings so make sure you've got some time to waste.

Here's ABCinema courtesy of Evan Seitz's Vimeo page via The Daily What:

I think it's really cool that each film is presented with the help of a single circle in the middle of the frame and the way it's manipulated with each letter. It makes the animation that much more cool and impressive, and even has me looking forward to each letter as they pop up. Even more fantastic is how each letter is integrated into the moving images. Honestly, I'd love to see more videos just like this. See if you can guess them all in the comments below, but if you need a little help, there's a cheat sheet right over here. Cool?
