dodos in action

There is nothing I don't love about this short film about the oddest requests ever submitted to the Getty Hulton Archives--a collection of images and film.  Maybe the most impressive thing of all is that this was a one-man project.  Laurie Hill filmed during the hours when the Archive was closed, and all his cut-outs were made from copies of images in the collection.  The film gives an excellent perspective on the sheer size of the archives, and the archivist comes across as a daring hunter, adventuring through the jungle of a warehouse.
Thanks to Gloria for the tip!
