It’s always nice to showcase a bit of local Wandle Creek talent.

Tom Jenkins from The Theory, based down the road in Wandsworth, has come up trumps with his latest stop motion animation film. Featuring music by the excellent Cinematic Orchestra, the film is about a lonely desk toy who longs for escape from the dark confines of the office so takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.

Peachy.

This starts off a bit weird, grows on you, and then becomes totally amazing. If I did all the things I thought I thought I was capable of doing, then this would probably be the result. And I’d probably be dead too.

Chuck Norris would be so proud.

Nuts.

When someone sent me this link I mistakenly thought it was a link to the R Kelly classic. Mercifully, it’s not. Instead, it’s a film by the kind of man I imagine myself to be. Maybe not now, but probably next year after I’ve gone to the gym a bit.

Sebastien Montaz-Rosset’s new film is a 40-minute documentary following skyliners – practitioners of an extreme sport that involves elements of mountain climbing, slacklining and base jumping. Filmed beautifully, it combines a delicious treat for the eyes with an epic quest of folle-francais.

Sweeeeeeeet.
