One more short documentary to end off the week! This nugget is one another put together by the good folks over at Variable and is the story of Władysław Tomczyk, a violinist in the streets of Poland.  Have a good weekend folks!

It’s remarkable when you think about how each person is the keeper of their own story.  Beyond that, I  have a huge appreciation for filmmakers that can find these people out and share their story with the world.  There’s no life-changing message here folks, just 16 minutes about a man doing what he loves.  Enjoy!

Shane Koyczan is an incredible vocal artist and put together this short based around the power of his spoken word.  With collaborations from a number of animators and designers, he put together this powerful message on bullying that goes so much farther than traditional campaigns.  It’s 7 minutes long, but 7 minutes worth it.

Today being Diwali in India reminded me of this incredible short put together by the good folks over at Variable (check out more of Khalid Mohtaseb’s work here).  They paint this really remarkable slow-motion picture that really celebrates a moment.

What an incredible series of woodblock prints by Hasui Kawase. I came across his paintings recently and can’t get enough of the surreal landscapes! It’s almost as if he was able to capture a quiet moment and paint that exact feeling of solitude. Here’s my favorite one.
