I always loved Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. And Disney’s adaptation too! In this video the key scene of Alice falling down the rabbit hole is processed so that each frame is composed with pieces of that very same scene. In order to appreciate the strange loop of the clip it’s recommendable to watch it on a very large screen.
