If you dress up like a Jedi on a day that's not October 31st (even if it is October 31st, actually), you're probably going to be branded a geek. Wear that proudly! But if you dress up like a Jedi and do parkour tricks in the freaking desert like bouncing off rocks and double backflips and triple spins all while looking like you're in a chase sequence for the next Star Wars movie, well, you're an AWESOME geek that everyone is proud of.

Like the awesome moving pictures in Harry Potter and the silliness of six second Vines, this video shows what art by Van Gogh would look like if the paintings he created could move. That is, how the candles would flicker, how the shadows would be cast, how the Sun would rise, how people would move, how the smoke would blow, how the ocean would look and so much more. It's fantastic.

Story
Tagline
Curriculum Consultant,  Apple Distinguished Educator, Contemporary Literacy Integrationist, SMART Exemplary Educator. Scruffy Nerfherder.
Introduction
I am a curriculum consultant working in for the York Region District School Board in Ontario Canada. My job involves helping teachers integrate technology with the curriculum, although I personally prefer the title, "Contemporary Literacy Integrationist". Instead of simply "teaching", I facilitate learning in a portal of passion based inquiry. People often ask me (I guess rhetorically) which platform I like best. I tell them, "When I want to get something done, I use a Mac". Guy Kawasaki, the original Mac evangelist, was about as passionate as one could be about the Mac platform. I hope I can impart a fraction of that enthusiasm when it comes to helping teachers integrate technology into their daily practice. Student engagement and creative content will surely be byproducts of this.
