I love The RSA animated series of videos. Here are a couple of random ones:

Enjoy!

Here is Muto (an ambiguous animation painted on public walls), a stop motion animation by the street artist Blu:

You can also download it in HD (it's CC licensed) via Bittorrent.

As a side note, parts of this film has been done in Buenos Aires, particularly very close to my actual and previous homes. There are a quite a few of other Blu paintings in both neighborhoods, some can be viewed in his home page:

I'd always wanted to take some pictures to all that nice graffiti, but never did. Maybe I should.

By the way, I've end up in this video via a top 10 stop motion videos in youtube. Not all videos are great, but some really are, I recommend viewing at least number 1, 2 (Muto :), 3, 4, 7, 9 and 10.

Enjoy!

Update

Blu just released a new video (with another scene in Buenos Aires, I can't tell where, but I can recognize the trash bins and sidewalks =):

Tales of Mere Existence is a nice series of comics and videos by Lev Yilmaz.

Here is the last animation, which is very close to how I feel about God:

War videos

Here are two very sad videos about wars.

The first is a representation of the battles in the last 1000 years as explosions in a world map. The size of the explosion is proportional to the number of deaths.

I guess it's missing a lot of small battles because you can't see any explosions in very big regions (like Africa, Latin America and India) until some empire tries to conquer them. I'm sorry if I depressed you too much.

The second video at least is cute if you forget what is it really about. Is an animation of food to represent several armed conflicts. Each country is represented by a regional food (you can see the cheat sheet if you get lost).

Found at No Puedo Creer. Lots of interesting stuff there (in Spanish though).

I'm not Ukrainian, I just like how weird foreign symbols looks like in my blog =P

Україна має талант means something like Ukraine's Got Talent and is where Kseniya Simonova fame comes from. It's indescribable what she does, you just have to see a video.

You might enjoy it (or understand it) a little more if you read about what's going on before actually seeing the videos.

Here is a fragment from a small article:

The appearance of a shy 24-year-old on a Ukrainian TV talent show this year has caused a nation to revisit its painful wartime past and is well on the way to becoming an international sensation.

About 13 million people watched Kseniya Simonova win Ukraine's Got Talent live with an extraordinary demonstration of "sand art". Most of them, according to reports, were weeping.
