Scintillation by Xavier Chassaing

Scintillation by Paris-based music video director Xavier Chassaing is an experimental work comprised of over 35,000 photographs and using a mix of stop-motion and live-action projection mapping techniques. While nobody seems to be exactly sure of how the look was achieved, it’s an undeniably gorgeous visual experience.

    Pretty cool! I thought of two things: Altered States and 2001 a Space Odyssey.

    Man, technology has come a long way since the Slit Scan camera (though 2001 is still an amazing piece of film making).

  • Beautiful. For some reason I thought of Fantasia. Love the music too.

  • Looks like a projector was used to apply the graphics to the surfaces.
