A Little Mardi-Gras

(vimeo link)

Photographer Keith Loutit has mastered the art of tilt-shift photography-- that is, a technique requiring a special camera lens to impart the illusion that what you're looking at are miniatures, not life-sized human beings. When he locks the camera down and shoots hundreds of successive pics, it becomes a movie. He recently took his camera down to Sydney's Mardi Gras celebration to capture the doll-sized fun.

Over 300,000 people lined the route of this years Mardi Gras parade, which marched up Oxford and Flinders streets in Sydney's inner-city Darlinghurst this Saturday.

If you were there on the night: I tried to capture as much as the event as possible.

Just think: once, filmmakers used models and stop-motion effects to try and make scenes look like they were real. Now filmmakers are taking actual footage and using effects to make it look like a stop-motion claymation project! http://keithloutit.com/2009/03/10/happy-mardi-gras/

That's amazing. It's almost like stop motion. Also the editing is fantastic with all the different angles and matching the tempo to the song. I've done something similar to this and I know how annoying it can be to align all the images to make it flow and match the beat of the song.
This video put a big smile on my face. =D
