  • We start this weeks Cool Stuff with a heft dose of eerily mesmerizing video. Artist and professor Dennis Hlynsky at the Rhode Island School of Design created this timelapse-like video that traced the flight paths of birds.
  • Though it’s less than a minute long, we try not to pass up watching Annie Leibovitz at work. This time, it’s for a Prada campaign.
  • The folks over at brought this awesome series of videos with Martin Scorsese discussing his approach for “Wolf of Wall Street” to our attention. #1 is embedded below; here are number 2 and number 3.
  • Also via, this video of DP Rodrigo Prieto makes for interesting watching. It’s a promo for the Canon C500, but is educational nonetheless.
  • And finally, from the folks at, as part of a series on the great masters of photography comes a bit about photographer Yousef Karsh. Check out the article for details, but Part 1 of the video in the series is embedded below.
