I found these absolutely fascinating and was riveted from beginning to end. Wonderful choice of music to go with. I only wish the "final" faces would have stayed a half-second longer so my brain could catch up with what I was seeing. Really fun.

The faces were exquisitely chosen, sequences and morphed; and the music! Ah, the Master sings to us in accompaniment. Bravo!
