    Animating with torches!

    I'd really love to try this out some time, don't know where I would get the patience though. Look out for the walking dog and running horse in particular, blows my mind

    Thats cool, do they say how they do it? Just one really long exposure time I assume?

    They screened some of their work at the OIAF last year. It does indeed blow minds!

    Yeah I assume it's just a long exposure time with a glowstick. I dunno if these guys take glowsticks and cameras everywhere they go or something, i've seen a fair few in a social setting wherre someone is just doodling in the air! Did you see the screening Momus? Lucky!

    Hmm..

    With the window closed the room is pitch black. Move the light around and at the end, open the window to complete the camera exposure?

    Thats all i got. To be honest though.. i'd never have thought it up myself.

    DAMN YES. Wasn't the best thing there, either, but it was pretty cool. The OIAF is where it's at.

    PROTIP: phone the festival staff up the weekend before screenings begin and ask for volunteer hours, preferably on Wednesday morning. You will get the most laid back job(s) on Earth, I swear to you, then have the rest of the week to enjoy cartoons with your volunteer pass!

    It's picasso doing a quick sketch of a bull using exposure. I have no clue how he did it though either. With long exposure youd think it would burn not just the light but also the movement of his body.

    Actually Picasso painted on glass, which is what hes doing in the pic.

    No it's not glass that i am sure of. He's using a pen light. Which is why the sketch is so quick, he only had about 30 seconds of exposure time.

    only widely published in 1950 but exhibited as well at The Museum of Modern Art. (figure 3).8 Mili's photograph of Picasso captures him drawing in space with a flashlight what appears to be a bull or a minotaur. The long exposure arrests Picasso's motions as one continuous, flowing line of light. The vertical, two-dimensional plane of the photograph, then, becomes the plane of the canvas.
    It's pretty far down in this article, but just use the find word tool, and look up bull. Very good article. http://dsc.gc.cuny.edu/part/part8/ar...oss_print.html

    Lugh is right. I've seen something similar in '98 with a grafiti crew that had this HUGE setup put together with around 30 or so cameras. Basically the same idea but with a matrix effect where you could view the "light graf" and rotate 180 degrees around it. To see the artist, a flash would go off around halfway or exposure time. I'll try to find the link again (egads!)...

    Anyhow, this kind of stuff is easy and fun to do. You just need a tripod

    Your right I was looking at something different he had done.

    Yeah it did remind me of the fortune faded video, but I think that was some post effects. Maybe the director of the video saw this stuff and thought it'd make a good music video, who knows?

    NIN did something like this for the video clip of Down In It, albeit only briefly. Though the eye-burning video mixing of that particular clip makes most frontline assembly videos look positively sublime.

    our art teacher in high school told us he'd use long exposure and a flash at the end. never tried it myself.
