About this video

This video was shot using MiniDV against a lit white cyc. The footage was captured in Final Cut and imported into After Effects where a combination of rotoscoping and contrast adjustments were applied to create the desired dancing and flying shadow effect. The final edit of this video saw it placed within a stage mask and included animations to move the shadow around the stage.
