Tiny Worlds: a series of films about tiny machines in the city like a tiny bulldozer, a tiny logging truck, and a tiny submarine.

That logging truck had some perspective issues. The arm seems to be well short of the match before it had picked it up. I watched it a few times and it just.... doesn't look right.

Brockles: I see what you mean but I think the logging arm extends itself to reach the stick. See the sections of the arm and how they lengthen and shorten a bit, quickly, once the arm is horizontal.

Fee fi fo fum, I smell the violation of civil liberties! Your Honor, I'm from a tiny person's advocacy group, and I have here in my hand a motion to dismiss! These little men were never read their giant rights and are therefore, free fi to fo home.

Greatness! I thought it was going to be something like this.

I love tiny things.

The sub needed vertical launch tubes or a proper torpedo door. Oh who am I kidding? Awesome stuff.

The people who made it have a VFX Reel. I was cheering for the products in it, even though I don't know what most of them were. If they ever play Leni Riefenstahl to a future Hitler we're basically screwed.
