Here is a remarkably good (if not too short) video of shadow puppet animals.
The Ministry of Manipulation presents:
Ladies and Gentlemen…
This years EJC was a special experience for all those contact jugglers that attended. Its a rare occasion when so many talented artists get together in one place… we had Greg, Jaine and Therione from America, Dawn and Ryan from Canada, Drew, Jago, Matt Hennem and Colin from the UK, Pich, Bruno and Furet from France, George and Chris from Greece, Em from Sardinia, Mot and Marco from Holland, and plenty more….
Now imagine trying to compress the entirety of those 9 days into only 10 minutes. Filmed by Dawn, edited by Ryan, with a special credit to Matt Hennem for the aerial photography of the site (not to mention the wicked contact)
Ok.. its old new, and by now most of you have probably seen the ad. But I had another look today and it still is one of my favorites; definetly worthy of a place here on the Ministry

Its real, in case you were wondering.

I still think this is the best web-video i’ve made so far.
