This mesmerizing stop-motion short film is called 'Voxel' and it's made by Ubiq for the T5 Festival in New York. The film uses LEGO-like cubes to replicate precipitation, the ocean and an undersea colony of coral.

While I'm a huge fan of stop-motion films in general, I particularly love how Ubiq's 'Voxel' characterized water and other organic objects using manmade cubes. It's a stunning parallel that only adds to the power of the short film.
