Daniel Franke and Andreas Fischer recently finished the post & effects on a video for the band “We are the world” from LA. Using custom scripts for After Effects which generate a mapping of the fft-analysis of the audio data of the song, the distortion of the dancer were controlled using the slitscan technique. The higher the audio values are, the greater is the range of frames sampled for one image. See video below.
Daniel and Andreas are part of the We Are Chopchop collective, a small community of designers, video- and media artists working and exploring in the field of visual culture production.
