…It’s Movie Monday: Mankind Is No Island?

Mankind Is No Island

Tropfest is the world’s largest short film festival.

Founded at Sydney’s Tropicana café in 1993, it now has an attendance of over 150,000 in Australia each February, and thousands more in other cities through out the world at other local Tropfests.

This year, the $20,000 first prize at the Tropfest in New York went to a film called “Mankind Is No Island” which was shot entirely with a cell phone camera.

The music is perfect, the effect is simple yet powerful, and the end result is a very emotional film that challenges the way we look at the world.

…Flickr has a lot of photos?

Flickr - Two Billionth Photo

Though it looks like any other photo, this photo of a sculpture, taken in front of Market City in the Chinatown Haymarket of Sydney, Australia is important, because it marks the milestone of Flickr’s two billionth photo! (Billionth with a B!)

Good to know there’s at least a few people putting their digital camera to good use.
