Brilliant Short Film Tells The Memories Of A Family With A Tour Of Their Empty Home

Video: This short film, Hiraeth by Trent Jaklitsch, is absolutely wonderful. Without seeing any actors and without seeing any relationships on screen, you’re still able to develop an emotional attachment to the family through a tour of their empty home. Each room represents a memory in their life, and hearing those memories and feeling their progression through the stages of life gives you a glimpse into their world. It’s such a beautiful and intimate way to remember what once was.


Lovely Animation Illustrates Life Using Different Clever Circles

Video: It’s the circle of life! Well, not quite but sort of. This great short animation from production company Chromosphere highlights the world we live in and the worlds beyond our world through the clever use of circles. Right smack dab in the middle of the frame, watch as the circles transform into animals and planets and space objects and natural phenomena and the human body and more. It’s a really well done animation.


Being Above The Clouds In New York City Is A Magical Place

Video: New York City is a special place. In the morning, when the city wakes up. At night, when it doesn’t sleep. On the grid, in the park, next to the water, across the boroughs, in the bars, on the corners, it all adds up to the best city in the world. Here’s a great view of New York City, this time from above the clouds.


Paddleboarding Among Icebergs

Video: When it’s cold outside, I don’t even want to go out. But there is beauty in the winter stillness and there are people who can brave the cold and enjoy it. Here is a portrait of Karol Garrison paddleboarding Lake Michigan while ice surrounds him. It’s so peaceful out there.


Watch Winter Turn Into Spring In These Beautiful Photos

Video: Fall is probably the most picturesque season but there’s always something beautiful about seeing the stillness of winter give way to the colour of spring.

Beautiful Video Zooms All Over Vienna, Austria

Video: I’ve never been to Vienna but I can tell you that it is beautiful because this video by FilmSpektakel. It takes you all over the capital of Austria through a fun zooming effect that teleports you to different landmarks. It’s sort of like travelling on a haze of drugs and booze.


This Is Very Probably The Most Beautiful Bike Ride You Could Ever Take

Video: If only this never ending swirl of beautiful landscapes actually existed on one bike trail. It would be the best ride you could ever get on a bike. Cleverly enough though, this short film called DreamRide by Juicy Studios shows Mike Hopkins riding through Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, and Washington and it makes it look just like one endless ride. Individually, each location they film at is already stunning. Combined and stitched together and edited like this, the bike ride almost feels magical.


Glorious Ultra Clear Video Shows One Entire Year Of The Sun

Video: This is what the sun looks like over the course of a year. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the Sun and all of its fiery grace from 1 January 2015 to 28 January 2016. That beautiful burning orb looks unbelievable in this amount of detail.


Seeing Lightning Strikes From Space Is Really Beautiful

Video: In our continuing coverage of Mother Nature’s wrath on the planet Earth (also known as lightning strikes on this blue marble), here is an otherworldly view of how this world of ours gets pummelled by electricity. Being so far removed from the ground, like how British ESA astronaut Tim Peake is, the lightning strikes that scar Earth are almost peaceful. Maybe even beautiful?


Exploring The Arctic Is Beautifully Difficult

Video: It’s cold. It’s lonely. It’s and it’s cold. That’s what this mere glimpse of life on an Arctic expedition looks like. The visuals are jarring: the ship looks like it’s parked on land, the moustaches are frozen, the research looks difficult. But it also must be so beautiful to be in places where so few have gone before.
