LINDY HOP

Original footage was taken from the internet, reprocessed into vertical stripes with three frame blocks of positive black & white alternating with high contrast negative. These dance spotlights were part of the International Lindy Hop Competition held in Washington, D.C in 2013. The sound is edited from separate sources, two cameras, one facing the band and one to the side.
