The animation effect is achieved by stacking photos. The photos are not manipulated in any way. Each photo was taken individually with a 30 second shutter. I used a flashlight and drew in the air to get the lightdrawing effect. I don't show up in the shots because I stay moving. The actresses show up because they held each pose for the full 30 seconds required for each shot. I'm pretty happy with it, but would love feedback and suggestions. The music was produced original by Modern Beat (modernbeatproductions.com) Recording Studio, with many thanks to David Jensen.
