Monday Morning Mini Movie: The Windmill Farmer

This morning we have a beautiful animation about a farmer caring for his windmill trees.

I love it when someone finds such a simple idea and turns it into a work of art.  This is how Joaquin Baldwin found inspiration:

"This film was inspired while driving back from a trip to Palm Springs, when my partner said that it must take them forever to plant and grow so many windmills. I wrote down the title The Windmill Farmer for an idea to explore later, and about a year later I started developing it into a character and story."

Monday Morning Mini Movie - Freediving Base Jumping

This morning's film is magical and literally breath taking!

This is an artistic film shot in many takes, not a documentary showing a single dive, so I definitly thinks it qualifies as a Mini Movie.  What's even more amazing than Guillaume Nery's breathless dancing/acting is the fact that the person filming, Julie Gautier, was not using Scuba gear either.  The entire project was made on held breath alone!

Thanks to Aquaviews.com for this one.
