Filmed against the sunset skies of Marseille, France, A Bird Ballet is a moment with a flock of (what we assume are) quickly-shifting starlings, caught by filmmakers Neels Castillon and Mathias Touzeris as they were waiting to film something else completely. Music: Hand-Made by Alt-J.

Previously: Murmuration. + the reasons and physics behind starling flocks, one with video.

From the Royal Ballet of Flanders - Backstage Doornroosje (Backstage Sleeping Beauty): 

In the video below our four principals, Aki, Geneviève, Alain and Wim, unfold their ballet way of life. But not before 11-year-old Emilie Borremans enthusiastically talks about her ballet ambitions. With her performance in Doornroosje she has a first taste of a real ballet dancer’s life.

The ballet, the costumes, the makeup, all of the stage lights… this video is beautifully shot, and really helps show the passion and excitement of a modern production. Found this after the kid and I watched Le Vent (h/t Devour), a slow motion ballet piece set to Radiohead which is also definitely worth watching.
