This is a real video performance, a slow motion video, a sequence map with a traveling in front of 80 extras placed on 80 meters along a little road, lost in an industrial area. Filmed at 1000 frames/second with a Phantom flex 4k from a car driven at 50km/h, the shooting took 5 seconds for a 3’30 video: a living and dreamlike mural.

YOU Are Groot: Why We Love This Guardian of the Galaxy
Groot is a hugely popular character thanks in no small part to the incredibly successful Guardians of the Galaxy movie. But why do we love Groot? Thanks to Scott McCloud’s amazing book, Understanding Comics, we have some pretty good ideas. The “mechanics” of Groot as a character almost perfectly line up with the primary reason why we like comics and cartoons in the first place. Not only that, but it’s possible that Groot is a comic book character that represents comic books themselves. I am Groot. You are Groot. We are all Groot!
That’s all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
