Lights

Street Lights is an experimental short made at university that combines long exposure photography with straight ahead animation. Using sound design from another student, I captured cars and street lights at night time with long exposures, creating waves of light that wash over the screen. This free approach was then combined with long exposure animation, where the movement of the camera created line art such as waves and expanding circles. A horse was rotoscoped with light using Muybridge's famous photographs to create an abstracted, moving form. Shiny wrapping paper was also used alongside bright coloured lights to produce tones and shapes.
