The Five-Minute Museum

British filmmaker and animator Paul Bush‘s  short film The Five-Minute Museum is a mindboggling tour through the history of Western Civilization at breakneck speed. The stop motion trip carries the viewer through the cultural history of civilization by way of six European museum collections. Filmed mainly with stills that flash by at a rate of 24 per second, Bush groups objects similar together. You don’t have to be a museum or history geek to enjoy this crazy, and sometimes humorous, journey. In the first short film clip below, Bush explains his process as introduction to The Five-Minute Museum.
