Smoke Ring Video

Check out this cool video Luke and I made of smoke rings! A few years ago, we discovered smoke ring guns (everyone got one for Christmas). Not only do they look all kinds of cool, they make a pretty amazing 1950’s B-movie sci-fi sound effect. We made this smoke ring video as part of projection for a dance piece.

Can you blow a smoke ring? What is your favorite Sci-Fi B-Movie?

Details: we turned off all the lights and used a projector as the only light source, pointed towards the camera to keep the background black. Shot on a Sony NEX-5, with post-processing in Sony Vegas.
