In today's age of viral videos, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, Instagram stands out as one an app that connects people from different walks of life. Thomas Jullien's video shows you how.

Instagram works as an online photo/video-sharing, that allows it's users to take pictures, apply digital filters to them, and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and all the others by allowing you to share across media platforms. The app works best as a way to bridge the gap between all these different areas of expression.

The allure of the app is that the photographs are displayed in a square format much like Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid snaps.

Thomas Jullien, an art director, decided to compile about 852 Instagram photos and make a short film. The transition from frame to frame is brilliantly done, and shows us once and for all that although we may have seen something a number of times, there is always another perspective.

The film features classic and stereotypical Instagram pictures like, feet, sunsets, buildings, and more.

On his site, Jullien said, "Instagram is an incredible resource for all kinds of images. I wanted to create structure out of this chaos. The result is a crowd source short-film that shows the endless possibilities of social media. The video consists of 852 different pictures, from 852 different Instagram users. If you are one of them, shout and I will add you to the credits."
