“Words”

My word for this is “awesome.”

It’s a mesmerizing film by Will Hoffman and Daniel Mercadante, made to accompany Radiolab’s “Words” episode on NPR. (For more info, visit www.radiolab.org.)

It took me a minute to figure out exactly what’s going on in this video, but when I picked up on it, it became a lot of fun.

    Good enough to watch a second time to pick up what I initially missed. I think this piece is successful not only because of the concept but also due to the editing. You’re given just enough time in each cut for the recognition and then it moves on.

    It took me a few seconds to figure it out, but when I did…awesome. Really well done. :-)

    Nicely put together. Beautiful imagery. I wonder how they chose their list of words.
