This gorgeous music video directed by Jean-Philippe Blunt & Thom Humphreys for Mt Wolf creates a dialogue between motion and capture.
from the press release:
Inspired by the work of Etienne-Jules Marey and by using the rigorous filmic process of ‘step-and-repeat printing’ as our foundation, we have digitally multiplied, delayed, freeze-framed and overlaid our shots. This layering up, in some cases, resulted in 50 video tracks.
Compositing allowed for a more controlled and sculptural study of movement. Although a digital workflow the technique was incredibly tactile, much like the early days of celluloid. No images were computer-generated and certain sequences include up to 1,498 shots.
The multiplicity of the visuals generated by this chronophotographic approach evoked certain parallels with wider natural phenomena. The archive sections were a way of exploring these aesthetic semblances.Tags: abstract, animation, vfx
