Filmography is a annual series by YouTube user Gen Ip, who edits together clips from the various movies released in a given year and music in what’s become a can’t-miss celebration of the art of filmmaking. The videos even include movies people generally think of as awful, and yet, in what can only be assumed is some kind of sorcery, fuses them together seamlessly with great movies as if they always belonged together.
For Filmography 2013, Gen Ip has nailed it again, with yet another inspiring reminder of why we love the movies so darn much. The seven-minute video consists of clips from 300 of the films of 2013, and can be seen below!
From the YouTube description:
“Words are life,” says Max in 2013’s “The Book Thief”, and indeed they hold us together and to help us share that transcendent phenomenon that is life. This video takes 300 of this year’s films and distills it into a 7-minute exploration of the ideas we keep coming back to: the purpose of life, the nature of evil, the mystery of death, the power of love, and the inevitability of time.
Or, it’s just a pretty cool mashup of movies from 2013. Either way: I hope you enjoy.
The series began back in 2010, and if you’ve never seen one before, it is highly recommended that you also check out the previous three installments.

NOTE: Some things here may be considered slightly spoilery, though I believe most of the clips come from trailers and such.
