The “Tiny” Apple

In world that more often than not goes to the extreme,  maxes things out, and super-sizes everything, filmmaker Sam O’Hare chose to follow his own miniaturized path by pulling a Wayne Szalinksi on New York City in his wonderful and tiny short film, The Sandpit.

What’s amazing about O’Hare’s miniature world is how much it mimics the insect world. For instance, the helicopters look just like dragonflies stopping for a quick drink at the water’s edge before they leave as quickly as they arrived. And of course, all of the people resemble marching ants, hustling in and out of their nests, searching for their next bite of food.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to bust out the Legos and Tonka trucks.

    This is is a movie filmed through a tilt-shift lens. The world is clearly full size and sped up in time lapse to give an imaginative child like impression of our busy world. Great work.
