Amazing Fire Animation

A stop motion video using tea candles, depicting some video game scenes. According to the creator it took over 2 weeks to do this with a lot of fire, a lot of smoke, a lot of heat, and a whole lot of frustration.

This is not a good video, because it relies on the story behind its very making to generate interest. You wouldn't have posted it (and I probably wouldn't have watched it) if the story read "This took two minutes using digital processing in Adobe Premiere" (or whatever).

It's worth spending a lot of time on something if the result has intrinsic value -- but if the result's only value is that it was hard to make... well, not so interesting.

By the way of an example, how much would you pay for a bottle of water I painstakingly collected from condensation by manually operating a refrigeration device? Not a lot, I suspect, although my effort would be rather great.

Wow Gutza, what does it take to impress you then? Because I thought that video was great - imagine the effort that went into the tetris scene alone!
