Wednesday 05.18.2011 , Posted by

This has to be one of the most beautiful and insane toothpick sculptures ever created… not only did Scott Weavers “Rolling Through San Francisco” take 35 years to construct, but it used over 100,000 of the tiny wooden sticks and over 3,000 hours of his time.

Wednesday 04.20.2011 , Posted by

“You’re going from making iconic images to creating narratives,” Sundsbo said, “but there is less of a narrative capacity in 60 seconds, so you need to create something like a poem that can lead your imagination.”

The videos accompany black and white portraits Mr. Sundsbo captured for The New York Times Magazine piece “The Scene Makers: Actors Who Defined Cinema in 2010.”
