As you can see above each tube can be split into 16 sections which are capable of animating not only across themselves individually but also in a flow. Basically transitioning from one tube to the other.
We wanted to contrast the handheld look which was being used for the other scenes so we decided to go with a stedicam. Add a little haze and a few kids and our working environment just got a little tighter. Aaron Foley, ever the professional took it all in his stride.
This scene was one of our quickest setups taking 10 minutes to block, light and haze. Basically 3 x Titan tubes on the ceiling set to a teal hue on a slow strobe. That mixed with the colour contrast of the torch and heavy shadows makes for an interesting image.
