It’s not easy making an image from a real-life scene to look ‘miniature’, and what more a whole short film? Here comes the deal-breaker, called The Sandpit from Sam O’Hare.
The story’s very simple: A day in the life of New York City, in miniature. This short is inspired by films like Koyaanisqatsi (really, that’s not in spell check??), and time-lapse tilt shift photography.
Original Music: composed by Human (www.humanworldwide.com), co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong.
The creator has a special note: “Please view in HD and full screen for best effect.”

This film rips the pants off your mind in one motion and then blows it. It’s a FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view where main subjects are already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes surreal.
Here’s another video on how this was made.
