This is a beautiful film made by using 35,000 still photographs. Think about it, this was made entirely of still photographs not video. This allowed him to carefully choreograph every single frame and every transition with complete precision. I have not been able to find out much about Xavier and his work but I certainly hope he makes more beautiful videos like this one. A small amount of info is available… Continue
These photos are from flickr user powerpig's backyard of a squirrel named Billy. These photos are real and I have no idea how he got Chewbaca to feed Billy. I mean, isn't he supposed to be fighting The Empire or something? Lazy bastard...now we're all doomed.
