{ follow the dancing light }

25 Mar

Light painting — a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera.

With a little practice, you can make yourself look like a super hero, hah!

I think this video captures the effort required to do something like this.  It takes a lot of practice and precision to make the same movements over and over again with a glowstick/flashlight since you don’t know what the image being “drawn” actually looks like until you see it on camera:

It takes 3 people alone just to make a smiley face, doesn’t it?

I can’t even imagine how long it took them to perfect the walking dog.  Stop-motion videos are hard enough to make as it is, but to do it with light?  It’s insane!

rain town

10 Apr

This hauntingly beautiful mood piece is Hiroyasu Ishida’s graduation film project at Kyoto Seika University.  The pacing is a bit slow but the music, coupled with the rain is quite lovely.  A few scenes are reminiscent of Castle in the Sky, so if you’re a fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s work then you’ll enjoy this short.


In this town, since who knows when, rain has never stopped.
Residents moved out to suburbs and high ground around
“rain town.”
People’s memories are now deeply submerged.
But into this forgotten rainy town
sometimes, someone wanders.

Rango: Part 2 – Behind the Scenes

16 Feb

“Natural acting experience” for-the-win!  Talk about loving your job; it must’ve been incredible to be on set especially since most of the cast have already worked together in Pirates of the Caribbean.  This may not be first time they’ve used this sort of method in the industry — I believe Disney was the first to do so with Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937), most notably the dancing scene at the cottage — but it’s still pretty spectacular to watch.  I hope they include more footages of this on the DVD.  The making of it is a performance in itself.  I guess they figured why waste talent when you have such an amazing cast to work with.  Let ’em loose and go all out!
