Check This Out: Animated Journey Through 'The Numbers in Film'
Almost exactly a month ago, we featured a cool video calledABCinema that paired each letter of the alphabet with a visual and sound clips from a movie. Now the director and animator of that video, Evan Seitz, is back, and this time he's taking us on a trip through the numeric world of cinema in a short called 123Film. He uses the same unique style of circular reveals, blending the numbers together with their backgrounds so they're sometimes difficult to decipher. But that makes the video even more fun, and trying to recognize which films are being referenced is probably the most fun you'll have watching a video today.
Here's The Numbers in Film, or 123Film, from Evan Seitz brought to our attention by GeekTyrant:
I really dig Seitz's visual style, and I love the way the music fades in and out with each number, giving everyone an audible clue to each movie while the video whips by. I'd love to see some Blu-ray and DVD menus designed by this guy, because the art of making compelling menus seems to have faded in recent years. I think a breath of fresh air like this might be a step in the right direction for studios to get people excited about physical media again. It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out what film number 3 was referencing, but taking a look at the whole image reminded me of a part of the film I had forgotten about and everything suddenly snapped into place. See if you can guess all of the films in the comments!
