SCINTILLATION from Xavier Chassaing on Vimeo.

This combination of stop motion and live projection mapping techniques is the most stunning piece of video I have seen in quite a while. The film is entirely constructed from 35000 still images which enables the supremely detailed and high quality shifts in depth of focus. I personally have no idea about the technical intricacies of live project mapping but the visual effect of multi coloured fire streaming across those orchids is nothing but sensational; in the absolute original meaning of the word as scintillating to the senses!

The ambient, minimal music by Fedaden is also worth a mention.

  1. Absolutely wonderful video, I think live image mapping is just in post production. It would be great to see this done live, with the different visual effects blurring according to the position of the planes they are projected onto (so that the projection is always in focus). Probably a bit difficult on irregular surfaces such as flowers and architrave!

  2. You must be right thinking about it. Projecting onto an orchid live could be a bit tricky. Looks like it works much better using regular, less organic shapes. Would love to give this a try;
