Hughes created two short films, one featuring Krump dancers

 

and the other featuring dancers from Canada’s National Ballet School

 

This how it was done film explains more about the technique

 

The camera rig for the films was designed and built by The Big Freeze while london-based Zelig Sound did the soundtracks for both.

While there have been similar and related techniques displayed in The Matrix, Time Slice films and Grey’s Toshiba Timesculpture commercial from 2008 (below) Hughes’ project is an interesting and beautiful new take on the use of multiple, synchronised cameras.
