Long Walk Across China

Sometimes, every so often, somebody does something crazy to move a format forward. Robinson Crusoe. Citizen Kane. Maus.

And now: The Longest Way takes the photo-a-day video genre up a notch. Two notches. Four-thousand notches.

A few things that make this so ingenious: the characters that flit in and out of the scene, and therefore, the creator’s life; his use of photos taken in super-quick succession to create an animated flip-book effect; oh, and China.

(Via Kottke.)

This is the coolest video I have ever seen. No joke. I feel inspired to document. Thanks for sharing.
