“The Camera Collection” is a remarkable creative endeavor animated by Antonio Vicentini, using lo-fi pixelated illustrations, by Bill Brown, are licensed under the Creative Commons. The gently nostalgic backing music is by Ben Hantoot, who’s made a number of well-crafted classical and electronic tracks available for free download. (He also has one of the few truly intriguing Flash-based websites I’ve seen recently. Heavy on gratuitous visual effects, yes—but entertaining.)
And so this is a visually entertaining video, but it’s also pretty indicative of the current creative environment. The zeitgeist of internet culture these days is heavily biased towards free and open content. I’m always happy to see creatives and hackers putting their work into digital circulation for remixing and hacking.
