This Amazing Video Made With Long-Exposure Photos Is Like a Hazy Dream

Michael Hession-, Gawker Media

Does this video remind you of being drunk, dizzy, or in some woozy dream-state? Whatever feeling it conjers, you've definitely never seen animated photos like this before.

Dancing Ghosts is a wonderful flight of fancy made up of sequential long-exposure photographs by Micael Reynaud that were interpolated-essentially blended together with editing software-to create the weird and wobbly effect. It's kind of a brilliant idea.

The various shifts in speed and motion of the animation only heightens the gooey, surreal feel of the video. While I have no idea what those weirdos in a park are actually doing, the evocations are endless. Does it remind you of 19th century photos melting in a fire? Hallucinogenics? Ghosts in your worst nightmares? Just watch, and bask in this weird experience. [Vimeo Blog]
