White Dress

MUSIC VIDEO: The Record Summer “White Dress”

When my friends at Bodan Kuma sent me this track by The Record Summer to brainstorm music video ideas, I knew right away that there would be some dancing involved. I’d recently been doing some tinkering with the phonotrope and rotoscope animation techniques and thought… “I wonder if my instagram friends would send me videos of them dancing to this song!?” Of course they would. And so after a bunch of math (framerate, shutter angle, turntable speed) I was able to make hand traced animation frames of my dancer friends and create the phonotrope discs for this video. In other words: dance party!

Special thanks to Steve Duchardt for introducing me to the wonderful phonotrope work of Tess Martin.
