An experiment with time remap. In fact just changed the cam : it was filmed with a Canon 7D at 60fps, making it really more smooth !
it was recorded as a funny pause while working on the performance "Cinematique" (vimeo.com/amcb/cinematique)... but this short dance is actually not in the show.
You can try it in real time in an exhibition called XYZT (vimeo.com/amcb/xyzt).
Just to explain : we have not invented this effect, we have just developed it to work on GPU at 60fps as a Quartz Composer plug in, it is based on sculpting of a 3D texture.
It's made with a custom Quartz Composer plug-in that transform a video stream in a 3D texture.
It can run at 60fps live at lower resolution (1024x512)
Kai is a dancer struggling to perfect her movements. She practices at home, avoids going out for drinks after training, and is endlessly chastised by her dance teacher, all to no avail. This changes when she has a collision with joy, and learns how to let go and express her pleasure freely.
Earlier this year, Magnum ice-cream teamed up with i-D to create a short film competition called "Be True To Your Pleasure", inviting emerging filmmakers to send in their short film ideas about personal pleasure and the joy of letting go. The three winners were announced in August and received funding, production support and a mentorship from award-winning filmmaker Xavier Dolan to help make their ideas reality.

In this elegantly simple film, a dancer's curiosity gets the better of him after investigating a mysterious cardboard box which transports him far away. Must he go deeper into the wormhole to get home?

PINA premieres in the official selection of the 61st Berlin International Film Festival (out of competition) on 13th of February.
PINA is a film for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. The feature-length dance film was shot in 3D with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and shows the exhilarating and inimitable art of the great German choreographer who died in the summer of 2009, inviting the viewer on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: right onto the stage of the legendary ensemble and together with the dancers beyond the theater, into the city and the surrounding industrial landscape of Wuppertal – the place that was the home and center of Pina Bausch's creative life for more than 35 years.
