I simply love this piece on the sardine run around the coast of Africa. The images caught around the :52 second mark are outstanding.

“The New York Pilot boat Jacob A. Westervelt was run down and sunk by the New Hamburg screw-steamer Saxonia on Tuesday morning, April 20, 1858, her Captain, John O’Keefe, drowned.  Captain O’Keefe was one of the most intrepid and capable of our pilots, and was a brother of Maurice O’Keefe, deputy U.S. Marshal.”

Saelee Oh and Eric Nakamura: Breathing Underwater

“Eric Nakamura and Saelee Oh collaborate for the first time to make a one minute stop motion animation short. Using simple materials such as paper, wood, and tape, Nakamura and Oh bring an aquarium to life with imaginary sea creatures one frame at a time with a digital camera. The collaboration process was organic and unscripted. Custom soundtrack was created by Bay area musician, Goh Nakamura.”
