This is Act 3 of a three act animated music video set to Randall Wolf's composition "Try to Believe".
The animation was created using zoetropes and digital cameras set at a high shutter speed.
The video was originally intended to be performed in front of an audience as a "live animation" using 28 mixed media zoetrope sculptures, 3 digital cameras, 8 computer controlled steppermotors and a video mixer.
The debut performance was held at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Maryland
on May 13, 2008.
I was responsible for creating zoetropes for Act 3 with IRC Fellows Evan Devine and Robert Yu. I edited together the last third of the edited music video version(~3:05 - end), and I served as video mixer during the "live animation" performance.
