» Die Zuckerlwerkstatt: How To Make Candy

Die Zuckerlwerkstatt: How To Make Candy
Die Zuckerlwerkstatt takes young and old into a world full of beautiful smells and unique flavours. The candy is produced right in the shop in front of your eyes and you can be part of the creative working-process of candymaking. All candy is handcrafted just with best ingredients, a lot of passion and old knowledges and techniques developed back in the 18th century.”
The people also look like they love what they do. Fantastic.

Burning Moments
Photographed by Ari Fararooy.
“A surreal take on my experiences at Burning Man 2014… The whole week felt like a really trippy, lucid dream. I was so busy exploring and meeting people that I barely took my camera out (hence the minute long video). This video is a collection of various moments I experienced that week.”
I like the various videos that always follow the end of Burning Man. Maybe more than I would enjoy going to it in person.

“This video is a ‘then-and-now’ comparison showing the Dutch city of Alkmaar in 1914 and in 2014.”
Pretty cool.

Couch Gag from 'Clown in the Dumps'
“Academy Award-nominated animator/filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt answers the question of what it would look like if THE SIMPSONS went far, far into the future!”
This one definitely made the rounds (Hello: Simpsons!) but this is also something I never thought I would ever see in my life. Hertzfeldt is insane. Such a crazy short.

Bonus Video:
