OLDgOLDBOUTIQUE.com has recently been delving into some stop motion videos: first came Twinkle Toes, now comes Midnight Minuet, their very first experimentation with stop motion dance featuring an uncanny bunch of animal masks. To be honest, words can't really describe this video. I've watched it many times over, each time more and more mesmerized by the dance, image and sound. The second time I watched it, I could barely take my eyes off of the sinister shadow figures. Have a look for yourself here.
Photography by Omar Al-Samadi, dancing animals by Jonebone (Jonah Leslie) and Hatchy (Matt Morein) and music is Morino Gakudan by Susumu Yokota.
