a young woman wakes up to find that she has become weightless, and floats through life until gravity inevitably catches up with her.
Une jeune femme se réveille dans un rêve de demain. Elle vole dans la nature. Jusqu'à être aspirée par un monde où règne la gravité. Où on l'oblige à mettre les pieds sur terre. Les gens qui l'entourent se ressemblent tous...
Music : "Tasty City"
the film was shot in 2011.
we started the project spontaneously in february in burkina faso and two shots from there even survived over the process. we continued to shoot additional scenes at the north sea cost without still knowing all of the story we would be telling at the end. then in hamburg we shot most of the scenes and finished it in brussels in july.
all in all i would say:
round about 7 days of shooting.
lots of nice shots we didn't put in the final editing ;)
shot on canon eos 5d mkII with older nikon prime lenses.
35mm 1.4 // 50mm 1.2 // 85mm 1.4 // 105mm 1.8
all pics are manually shot single photos in sraw2 format.
thx for all the support! :))
The Motion Project was a collaboration between a lot of clever creative people working together to create a machine that turns motion into music. The client for the project, Frucor (makers of V energy drink), together with their agency Colenso BBDO, kitted-out a warehouse space for this project to grow in and gathered together a group of talented people from a number of creative fields.
We created and designed the live visual spectacle with a music video being produced from the results. We wanted it to be clear that the technology was real and actually being played live. The interface plays a key role in illustrating the idea of the instrument and we designed it to highlight the audio being controlled by the dancer. Design elements like real time tracking and samples being drawn on as they are played all add to authenticity of the performance. The visuals are all created live and the music video is essentially a real document of the night.

A short movie about time and space done by Nico Neefs (photographer) with Stéphane Bourhis (dancer) and Masami Sakura (dancer). Sound by Anthony Braucourt.
3rd Prize and Cinema Prize of the Choreographic Capture festival (Munich, Germany)
"This Choreographic Capture by Stéphane Bourhis and Nicolas Neefs consists of 100
individual photos and uses the stop-motion technique. The sequential arrangement and rapid
serial presentation of numerous individual images create the impression of motion. The two
performers appear to dance wildly and to float weightlessly in the space in this successful
composition, in which reduction to the bare essentials creates a powerful effect."
Performed by Lindsey Oleary at EHS 2009 Fall Recital; Choreographed by Ambrose Respicio.
