Krump & Ballet 360

A very interesting project with photography and video to put together this amazing work of art. Different styles of dance brought onto one playing field, I really love projects such as these and the amount of technical work that goes into it makes it seem effortless. I do not have the technical ability to pull off something such as this, I would like to develop the ability to get better, but I’m amazed at how they got it done.

“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.

Street Fighter Stop Motion – Ryu VS Ken

The last few games of Street Fighter have been amazing and I hope that they come out with an animation soon, I never get tired of the Streetfighter Saga. Now this stop motion animation is a work of art, it looks so damn good and surprisingly this all took two days and was done with a Nikon D5100 with very little special effects.

Lego Starcraft: Brick Rush

I think I have had StarCraft on my mind 24/7 for the past week or so and I’m not even getting enough time to play all that I want. I’m seriously not getting enough but this stop motion photography depicting Lego StarCraft is fantastic. Terrans vs. The Protoss, its pretty much just like the game, except for less fire power. Just seeing this video makes me think about taking a week off and turning into a StarCraft Hermit. I love well executed stop motion photography because I know it takes a lot of time and skill to make it flow smoothly and realistically.
