WATCH: French Artist Sources 852 Instagram Photos Into One Cool Short Film

Instagram CrowdsourcingThomas Jullien pulled together everything he needed for a visually spectacular photo tour around the globe. How? 852 Instagram photos.

Jullien wrote on his Vimeo page. “I wanted to create structure out of this chaos…The result is a crowd source short-film that shows the endless possibilities of social media.”

In addition to forward thinking films like this, more and more people are crowdsourcing the big events in their lives. By asking their friends to use a custom hashtag at their wedding or event when they post their photos, a lot of people are bypassing professional photographers and opting instead for the instantly sorted, more natural collection of images that only social media and a camera phone can provide. 

The music is “Gold On The Ceiling” by The Black Keys.
