I have to say up front I’m a little ashamed at posting this. I don’t watch American trash TV or “reality TV”, in fact, I don’t even have cable.

[Video] A Creative, Inspirational Short by Tom Jenkins

Using Google Street View, stop motion animation, a 5D Mark II, everyday objects as props, great lighting and the power of the creative mind, director Tom Jenkins made what maybe my favorite short of the year, Address Is Approximate.
