The story of life via 873 stock photos

Ad for Getty Images shows the circle of life through still imagery

The folks at Getty Images have posted a very cool ad for their stock photo image service, telling a story of a boy, a girl and their life through stock images only. Called "From Love to Bingo", the film is fascinating to watch.

The film features 873 images displayed at a frame rate of 15 images per second, and the filmmakers worked six months going over more than 5,000 photographs in order to tell the story. It's a great piece of video.
