Check out this incredible Light Painting Photography Animation created by Jinchao Wu! This is a great example of when light painting and a little bit of post production come together to create something extraordinary. Inspired by the work of Lichtfaktor Jinchao shot over 10,000 individual light paintings to create this 2 minute stop motion! He used After Effects to sync up each of the 10,000 frames to the music and to animate a few sequences. This light painting film took nearly 2 months to create and all the light painting was created in camera. Check it out below and for more of Jinchao’s light painting work check out his Vimeo page HERE.
