Light-Paint Piano Player

This may be short but it is beautifully done. It simply involves animated light paintings of a little piano player performing. It was filmed at night by Ryan Cashman with the I-5 camera and the San Diego skyline in the background.

Cashman wrote the music and recorded it first. The frames were photographed with a Canon Rebel using 20-30 second exposure time.

He then used a small green LED keychain light to draw each frame. Once all the positions were photographed they were strung together and synchronized to the music in After Effects. All I can say is wow!
