A dance activated film and traditional video for Arcade Fire.

The idea is to affect the pacing of the film with your movements.

You are invited to dance in front of your webcam. There are no specific rules, no complicated “minority report” tricks. Just an invitation to move your arms or your butt on the music.

The quicker you move, the faster the frames play. You slow down, the characters in the video slow down. You freeze and the video starts to loop on the beat, creating a new choreography in the choreography.

It is also possible to interact with your mouse, in case you don’t have a camera or you want to switch from dancing to clicking.

Vincent also did a traditional video out of the same shoot that you can watch on TV, vimeo or YouTube. For the interactive version, Damian Taylor did a great remix of Sprawl II.
