I have to admit, I kept expecting something like this to happen.

If that's supposed to be a setting sun at 8:14, then the crescent moon is all wrong.

That was messed up and cool.

That whole genre/era of painting when Bourgereau flourished, the ludicrously over-realistic, voyeuristic renderings of classical or romantic subjects, is such a strange thing to begin with, and bringing it to an odd semblance of slow-motion life like that just takes the weird to another level.

Loved it.

Uncanny Chasm.

This evokes unease all out of proportion to the source material.

Via Gizmodo, another example of this technique: Each scene in this video is made from one still photo

I was just about to post this and went to change the "Kinda NSFW I guess maybe?" to just "Kinda NSFW" and then the link catcher caught it.

Oh wow. Just finished watching it completely. I couldn't watch more than a minute because it seemed to eroticize kids way too much and I didn't feel comfortable at all with that. But now I just watched the whole thing and - wow - it's not just kitschy sensuality it gets dark, wonderfully dark in a way that makes the beginning a prelude in a completely different light.

Nice one homunculus!

As an alternative to the tumblr (linked in tribute to the art), here's a list of pieces by artist and title of the work.
