how does an ember move and change shape over time? what if we could perceive these incremental changes as a fluid motion?

this short is my first attempt at finding out.

each frame is a 2 second exposure shot exactly two seconds apart. i chose this long shutter speed so the flames would blur out and wouldn't distract from the embers. every clip is shown at a constant speed, and all but the second to last is shown both normally and in reverse.

thanks to my friend dave for letting me use his burn barrel and high powered fan for shooting.
