Life-Cycle: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC
"Get a bike. Lock it to a post. Take a pic every day for a year.
Last year, Red Peak Branding conducted a unique urban experiment for Hudson Urban Bicycles. On January 1, 2011 we chained a fully loaded bike - bells, basket, lights and more - to a post along a busy Soho street. We took a picture of the bike everyday for 365 days, watching it slowly vanish before our eyes. The photos we took were then turned into a daily calendar. We call this project LIFECYCLE: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC."
Screaming Marine on a amusement ride
Well, he's right, that was not a countdown.
Classical Music Rollercoaster
"Visualization of the 1st violin of the 2nd symphony, 4th movement by Ferdinand Ries in the shape of a rollercoaster. The camera starts by showing a close-up of the score, then focuses on the notes of the first violin turning the staves into the winding rail tracks of the rollercoaster. The notes and bars were exactly synchronised with the progression in the animation so that the typical movements of a rollercoaster ride match the dramatic composition of the music."

Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut
Only flipped through it quickly. Some is funny, some is lame, all of it is incredibly nerdy.
"It's finally here! Star Wars Uncut is a crowdsourced fan re-creation of Episode IV. Casey Pugh, the humanitarian responsible for the project, divided the entire movie into 472 15-second segments. Fans volunteered to make those segments, which Pugh then compiled. Legal issues prevented the immediate release of the finished product, but now you can watch the entire movie in one video."
And, as usual, we'll end with a quality video:
