Rio: A "Tilt-Shift" Carnival Film (miniature faking)

Carnival in Rio de Janeiro

"Film director and musician Jarbas Agnelli, in partnership with photographer and filmmaker, Keith Loutit, set out to capture this amazing event on camera in a way it has never been seen before. In the five days of carnival, the pair shot 167,978 photos, then with masterful editing and a soundtrack composed by Agnelli himself, they composed a tilt-shift style video from their stills titled The City of Samba. The final product is nothing less than amazing. ... Watching the video, you forget that they are still shots and the effect of the tilt-shift makes everything look like claymation. "
