After 5 years of experience with light painting we developed special event tools as business and fun application.
The LICHTFAKTOR PhotoStation is a great tool for all kinds of events. We generate individual pictures and the participants get a real photo printout or a link to download their image. For us it's a lot of fun and a interesting and spontaneous way of expression and communication.
We did this light painting video in Korea for KDB (Korean Development Bank), it was the coldest production ever for us, we had freezing -15 C. It was a big experience and we meet many nice and friendly persons, the Korean food is just great...
Special thanks to Julie from n.j.comm and 리형윤 the director from Alpha Villee, much respect to Kevin, Kyungho, and the agency SK M&C.

We often get asked about our plans for future projects and one of our favorite answers is, to work at special places and this was a special place!
Here are some pictures and a short clip that we did at a real magical place the mighty rheinfall.ch, the light painting pictures/video are done for the wortundbildfestival.ch, special thanks to toniolo.ch.

Stop motion form and colour, using light painting techniques.
Lighting: Kim Pimmel
Sound: Tron Legacy trailers
I've been interested in taking my Light Study photo series and evolving them into motion pieces. I shot a lot of footage for a VJ gig for FITC San Francisco. So I edited together those stop motion sequences, mashed up some audio from the Tron Legacy trailers, and out came Light Drive.
The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.
To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.
The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.

This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world.
We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.
We've collected some of the best images from the project and made a book of them you can buy: bit.ly/mfmbook
