Tilt-Shift Videos and an Interview

Disney has been releasing Tilt-Shift videos, like the one you can see above, for quite some time now. They are very interesting to watch and never cease to hypnotize me. The art of tilt-shifting is, first and foremost, a photographic principle that Disney has applied to video in the form of stop-motion animation. As you can see, it leads to a very cool effect where everything appears to be miniaturized. Read a really great interview with the man in charge of the videos, Todd Heiden, here.
