CSAIL Video to Premiere at Boston Ballet Night of Stars
September 20, 2013
CSAIL members have created a video in collaboration with Boston Ballet that will have its premiere at the Boston Ballet Night of Stars on the Boston Common on Saturday, September 21st.
CSAIL Principal Investigator and Professor David Gifford and graduate student Adrian Dalca created the video by placing multiple small cameras in a Boston Ballet studio, shooting from two angles at various speeds to create a visual record of a day of rehearsal. The resulting footage was used for both time-lapse and slow-motion capture, and the segments were computationally manipulated to add effects and set to music. The video is two and a half minutes long, and illustrates a typical day in the life of a ballet company.
