Stands of glossy gold drip and glide across the screen, flaxen rivulets swell, spring, become blonde eruptions… surging, sweeping, and subsiding to drift lazily in warm currents once more, tendrils of soft platinum circulating in tawny streams.
Alternately titled Liquid Hair, this experiment from world-renowned director Tony Potts and hair stylist Ken Arthur was shot at 2000fps using the WEISSCAM HS-2 Digital Highspeed Camera, and cut with dynamic time ramps designed to show off new techniques for the hair and beauty scene. We will see no sign of perspex rods, hair wranglers, or an army of hairspray-wielding maniacs. Flyaways are left intact – in fact these errant and wayward strings are what gives such subtle beauty to this film.
