An Epic Battle Created with Light Painting and Stop-Motion

Light Warfare is a demonstration of what’s possible with light painting and stop motion given enough time and dedication. It was created by Freddie Wong, who also published a tutorial for creating light painting photographs on his website. This amazing 1-minute video required a whopping 13 hours of shooting over two days. Each frame needs to be individually “painted” and — seeing how complicated some of the scenes are — must have required pretty long exposures.
