Month of Interesting Things Day #3: Filmography 2011
Movie

Today, for my interesting thing, I'm just going to post a link to this awesome video called filmography 2011. It is essentially a video that edits all of the movies from 2011 -- 230 of them -- into an awesome video that spans a little under six minutes.

Why do I think that this is pertinent? Actually, I think it's beautiful, and for many reasons. One is because it is an excellently crafted video, and you can tell that a lot of thought and effort and time has gone into it. Another is because it highlights the reason that we go to films in the first place -- to be entertained, to be inspired, to be moved, to come together as humans sharing a common experience. And lastly, I like it because it juxtaposes the things we like to see in movies, and that we like to see the same things over and over, but that doesn't mean they are boring to us. It's a beautiful work of art, really, and it highlights the fact that films are beautiful and meaningful to us as humans.
