I recently stumbled upon (as in, my girlfriend emailed to me) a great video produced by Olympus. Yes, it's promotional, but very worth watching.
The wow-factor is in the production technique: It was made using a somewhat extreme stop-motion technique that involved taking 60,000 photographs, developing 9,600 of them into prints, and then re-shooting 1,800 of the prints. All to tell the simple tale of a boy who grows into an old man.
I promise you, this is three minutes of viewing well spent.
