Canadian filmmaker and photographer Ryan Enn Hughes’s 360 Project uses 48 cameras arranged in a circle and triggered simultaneously to explore the crossover between still and moving image
Hughes created two short films, one featuring Krump dancers
and the other featuring dancers from Canada’s National Ballet School
This how it was done film explains more about the technique
The camera rig for the films was designed and built by The Big Freeze while london-based Zelig Sound did the soundtracks for both.
While there have been similar and related techniques displayed in The Matrix, Time Slice films and Grey’s Toshiba Timesculpture commercial from 2008 (below) Hughes’ project is an interesting and beautiful new take on the use of multiple, synchronised cameras.
