So, do you consider yourself a movie buff?
If you're like me, then the answer is an unequivocal yes. In that case, then I've got something that you will like.
Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the Internet not involving bare skin is its ability to get people and content noticed by large amounts of people. If you were an aspiring animator say living in Atlanta, it would have been pretty difficult to get noticed in Hollywood before the advent of the Internet.
Now, said animator is a simple mouse-click away.
I certainly can't speak for Evan Seitz or his career aspirations, but the fact that I'm speaking about him at all is proof of the power of technology and the Internet specifically. I came across one of his videos today from an acquaintance that I follow on Twitter and I was blown away.
You can experience his brilliance below and my words will hardly do justice to his art, but basically he has created a series of videos in which he quickly animates a movie along a theme. So far, he has released four videos in the series that has covered the ABCs, numbers, colors and countries.
Those categories are key as the clips are short and use visual and aural stimulation to convey the movie that he's hinting at. The fun part is that he doesn't name all of the movies in the videos themselves.
However, if you are stumped, Evan has cheat sheets on his blog. For now, sit back and enjoy.
Oh and good luck because these aren't easy at all!
