Slit-Scan Experimental Video

November 9th, 2012 | Brain, Space


This film was created by  using a variant of slit-scan technology.

How it works: The first line of the video is recorded in real-time, but the second line is late by 1/60 of a second, the third is late by 2/60 of a second and so on to create a long rolling shutter effect.

This is by no means new technology, but the simple dance accompanied by Beirut music (La Llorona – March Of The Zapotec), is certainly one of best examples I’ve ever seen.  It looks like some sort of alien mating dance.

The video actually came out a few years ago, but it’s recently been making the internet rounds, so it’s new to me.  Here’s an example using the same technique from 1988 called The Fourth Dimension.
