This charming light painting animation was launched last week to promote the Firefly Festival in the enchanting setting of the Herefordshire countryside. Held in a small forest clearing behind Elton Hall, near the town of Ludlow, Firefly is an intimate, humble gathering set in a natural amphitheater.
The animation is a collection of light paintings, a process which is achieved by opening the camera’s exposure for around 30 seconds, then using a light source – torch, candle, glow stick – to literally paint within the frame. The film is the work of 4AM Shorts, a collection of talented Kingston University animation and illustration students.
