Although we’re trying to find and publish new and up-to-date projects on the Mushroom, we felt like we can’t skip this brilliant video from 2009! This is an experimental film made up of over 35,000 photographs by Xavier Chassaing. It combines an innovative mix of stop motion and live projection mapping techniques. 3D animation that’s projected on objects, equipment used and editing was done by Xavier.
“What I have was an apartment, a small DSLR camera, a small computer and a small video projector. I also made a contraption which looks like a motion control but with the particularity of moving extremely slow that allowed me to take sequences of pictures with long exposure (1 frame per second, with 1 frame exposure.) Even the best camera can not compete with this kind of sensitivity if they shoot at normal speed.”
