I love a good infographic. A nicely designed infographic really does it for me. And when that infographic is animated into a beautiful film, that is just the icing on the cake.

Today’s Stellar Short is one such beautifully designed and animated infographic that tells another version of a horrible story – how our dependence on fossil fuels is ruining the environment, Only this time the focus is on all the oil that was spilled into the Gulf of Mexico and what 205 million gallons of oil could have been used for.

This is a great example of a beautifully rendered presentation of an ugly truth. Filmmaker Chris Harmon, take a bow.
