Circle of Abstract Ritual

This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life. Digital downloads…
Gerald Carey's insight:

Wow! 

A superb film in many different ways not associated with illusions BUT he does an number of anamorphic time-lapse shots which are stunning.

Gets a bit gross at about 6 minutes in but not in a mindless way.

Well worth a look if you have a spare 12 minutes.
