this is werner herzog he is a bit of a dude! he truly belives in what he does and what he says, herzogs film and documentaries are some of the most epic, intense and truly humbling i have ever seen and i highly recomend his work to any one, it will blow you away! (real name Werner H. Stipetic) was born in Munich on September 5, 1942.
He grew up in a remote mountain village in Bavaria and never saw any films, television, or telephones as a child.
He started travelling on foot from the age of 14. He made his first phone call at the age of 17. During high school he worked the nightshift as a welder in a steel factory to produce his first films and made his first film in 1961 at the age of 19.
Since then he has produced, written, and directed more than forty films, published more than a dozen books of prose, and directed as many operas.
this is blu he is a murial artist from sau Pablo, i got sent this animation over facebook, and i watched it over and over again i couldent believe my eyes! i really did think ther was some computer trickery at work here, this is some quite spectacular and genuine anamation also taking into account the scale and prosesses that he is dealing with i was also struck by the fact that it reminded me a'lot of jan svankmir (major pioneer of stop frame animation)you should definately check some svankmir out and you will see for your self that blu has bee majorly influenced by this dude mabey at some point ill find some more vidoes! also a week after i found out about this guy he had already done huge murials on the side of the tate modern, its awsome to see that the tate has put it into proper context! awsome!! also there is a link to his site on the side bar

this is cool, the moomins, the comic strips of finnish illustrator tove jannason this is a recent RE-discovery, when i was seven or eight i used to get up a six o'clock in the morning to watch this, i think it was on just after sonic the hedgehog, it used to scare the life out of me!!!
