Short Film – “Salience”

Paul Trillo just released his new experimental short film “Salience”.

From the description: “Invisible figures emerge from a forest to be revealed by bursts of colored powder. Shot on the Phantom Miro at 1500 frames per second.”

I was one of the “invisible figures” – a bunch of the shots, including the “levitating” figure in the title frame, are of me. It was shot earlier this year, in the cold of late winter/early spring. Wearing only thin lycra bodysuits used for chromakey (i.e. green screen, blue screen), we were pelted with colored powder as we moved through the woods and fields. Through the magic of visual effects, our figures were made mostly invisible, with the colored powder showing through. The result is beautiful and mysterious.

Here’s the behind-the-scenes where Paul describes how the short was made:
