This Trippy Music Video Was Made with a Circular Rig of DSLRs and Clever Editing

1 Comment

Photographer and film director Naren Wilks created this mind-bending music video by arranging DSLRs around a circular green screen room. When the perspectives of the cameras are combined and synchronized, a “rotationally symmetric, kaleidoscopic world” is created. The song is “Fear & Delight” from the album Puppet Loosely Strung by The Correspondents.

Only 5 people were involved in the production of the music video. Here’s a look at the circular room that Wilks built, and a few glimpses of production:
