Ralf Hildenbeutel’s new music video for ‘Disco’ is created by nothing more than 1200 hand painted frames. These gorgeous watercolor images are drawn/painted over live video of two dancers, Althea Corlett and Simone Schmidt. This process is known as rotoscoping, remove the video underneath and you’re left with animation as smooth as the dancer’s movement.
The technique varies from frame to frame but the overall quality is still breathtaking.
Disco was animated by Boris, Mina, and Mihwa Seewald, and filmed by Georg Simbeni.
