Idiot with a Tripod video ode to Man with a Movie Camera

The above short film is Jamie Stuart’s fun ode to Dziga Vertov’s Man With a Movie Camera. Shot in New York, the homage to the famous Russian silent film from 1929 is certainly a delight to watch, but I wouldn’t go as far to say that it deserves an Academy Award, like Roger Ebert recently declared.

I’m not sure how I feel about giving away awards just because something is an homage or was edited and completed in a few hours — you’d be surprised how rampant that is on YouTube, Ebert. It also feels like Ebert’s underappreciating the impact Trent Reznor’s Painted Sun in Abstractsong from The Social Network can have on any video.

Still a great video worth a watch. Here’s a recent 2010 blizzard time lapse video I also enjoyed even if it’s not artistic. If you want to be thoroughly impressed, I’m still massively impressed with this video.
