If you've not seen this before - and its been out for a few months - then you really should. It's a beautiful example of rotoscoping, with footage of two dancers, Althea Corlett and Simone Schmidt, transformed into of approximately 1250 paintings on paper.

The video, for German composer Ralf Hildenbeutel was directed by Boris Seewald - and involved a few more of Seewalds as animators. In some ways reminiscent of Chris Milk's epic Johnny Cash Project, and entirely lovely.
