This teeny tiny stop motion animation film features an animated 3D character that is only 9 millimeters high!

It was created on order to demonstrate the power of the camera on the Nokia N8 mobile phone with a microscope attachment called CellScope. It was created by Sumo Science at Aardman Animations (the people behind Wallace & Grommit). Read more about it here.

And check out the amazing “making of” video too!

PS22. Cutest and ass-kicking-est school chorus. Ever. [video]

I’m absolutely in love with this chorus of 5th graders from a school Staten Island, NY called PS22. They do covers of songs ranging from Eminem, to Crowded House, to Lady Gaga, to this cover above of “Lisztomania” by the indie band Phoenix. Aside from the covers of the songs which are so fun to hear what I love best is how much fun they are having and how into the experience they are! Rock on!

Check out PS22’s YouTube channel to see and hear more of their songs.

P.S. Here’s Phoenix performing this song if you’re in the mood… Such a great song.

OK Go does it again. This time with toast. [video]

OK Go’s latest music video is totally impressive as always. It is comprised entirely of photos of pieces of toast with images burned into them. I also love this statement on the video’s YouTube page:

“All 215 loaves of bread used in the making of this video were past their sell-by date and rescued from the clutches of certain disposal.”
