SPOILER ALERT! DON’T READ THESE RETROSPECTIVES UNLESS YOU’VE FINISHED THE BERN SAGA. There are a ton of themes in the four books comprising the Bern Saga, but two of them stand above the rest.

This is simply amazing: the world’s tiniest stop-motion film shot with a cell phone and a magnifying rig. And it isn’t all techno-wizardry. The animation and story are awesome as well. Enjoy. Brilliant, eh? Now, to really be blown away, watch the making of: more
