This piece was created just to turn a good idea into film.
Thanks to the Bayerisches Staatsballett for the coorperation.
Shot on a Canon 7D with 50 frames. Slowed down in After Effects with Twixtor. A lot of cleaning had to be done here!
“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle.
There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast.
The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.
