Nylon Films and the Rambert Dance Company

Nylon Films are always working on interesting and unusual projects, their latest was to team up with the Rambert Dance Company to produce a short film about choreography:

From Nylon Films:

We dangled cameras from I-beams, “surfed” them on skate boards and even developed a dance or two of our own (albeit minus the grace and beauty ) while covering bits of the rehearsals with a steady cam…and then Dan Finnerty made all this fabulous footage come alive in post.

For those of you interested in the technical bits — we shot on Canon 5D’s, the Sony EX3, Flips, and Go Pros, the combination of which added to some dramatic moments in the edit, which was done with FCP, After Effects and Twixtor.

The Concrete Jungle Book

Nylon Films has recently produced a new video trailer for a graphic novel “The Concrete Jungle Book”.

Using a variety of techniques, london based Nylon Films has created a video that brings to life the strange, compelling reality of the new graphic novel, The Concrete Jungle Book.

Original artwork from the book was animated and blended with newly shot video and stills of urban landscapes and scrapbook making. Live animal archive was rotoscoped, then transformed with the software program ToonIt before being added to the video mix and choreographed to a hard-driving, original music track.

It’s made us look twice as we drive past billboards and office towers — is that a leopard leaping out at us…or a bear on its hind legs. As the video says, the city is, after all “just the jungle in disguise.”
