48 Nikon D700 aligned in a circle: The 360 Project - Behind the Scenes ( PART I )

Behind the scenes

“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle.

There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast.

The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

Wow, he actually removed the bullet time rig completely manually from every frame in Photoshop?! He could have done a simple roto job in Nuke, Flame, After Effects, Toxik or pretty much any compositing software out there and probably saved several day's worth of extremely repetitive work. And he didn't even use Photoshop Extended's timeline. Oh well, whatever gets the job done I guess.
