We’ve come up with a technique using the Nikon camera and lights that we’re really excited about.
The Night Life film uses hundreds of individual cutout shapes to create an animated story that is captured completely in-camera.
The film, which was inspired by the early photographic works of Edward Muybridge, follows a series of wild animals as they run from the countryside to explore the streets of London whilst the city sleeps, retreating back to the wilderness again before the sun rises.
Silhouettes of animals moving (running/flying/jumping etc) are beautiful in their simplicity.
It will feel like one long continuous journey as each animal morphs into the next, gradually getting to bigger and more impressive animals as the film goes on.
