Light Drive from Kim Pimmel on Vimeo.

Stop motion form and colour, using light painting techniques.

Lighting: Kim Pimmel
Sound: Tron Legacy trailers

I’ve been interested in taking my Light Study photo series and evolving them into motion pieces. I shot a lot of footage for a VJ gig for FITC San Francisco. So I edited together those stop motion sequences, mashed up some audio from the Tron Legacy trailers, and out came Light Drive.

The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.

To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.

The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.

“On the space that widens between you and your imagination as you grow old.”

Made with mostly simple household goods like food coloring, soap, water (and a few exotic things like Ferrofluid). I wanted to draw the viewer in with lush visuals and loose narrative, but then burst that suspension of disbelief with the recognizable bubble characters – compelling the viewer to ask themselves whether they still have their childlike wonder or not.

Motorola Surfboard Modems – Live to Share from Jeff Briant on Vimeo.

Earlier in 2014, Re:Made approached me to animate one of their designed pieces for Motorola’s new Surfboard modem. Tim Pachuau brought some crazy design chops to the table with some artboards that looked radness, so I dived head first. This project had a relatively quick turn around of only 3-4 working days, but it was a blast working with Re:Made and I got to meet some cool dudes in the process.

Role: Animation
Software: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator
