After over a decade of photographing some of the cityʼs hottest events and parties, intrepid photographers Scot and Kristi Redman noticed something lacking in the event arena: A new take on the classic photobooth.
In a world of Instagram boomerangs and polaroid-style snapshots that all look the same, the Redmans wanted to shake things up and create something truly fun and unique. Collaborating with designer Ben Haschke, the trio conceived a totally new experience and launched MOTUSRED.
A sleek multi-camera rig ready to go anywhere, the MOTUSRED creates 3D motion-photos that look like something out of ‘The Matrixʼ; capturing single perfect moments in-motion and dazzling partygoers at every event they have popped up at all year long.
The magic of the animated-gif-like effect (which we canʼt get enough of looking at) is in nine cameras housed in the rig firing at exactly the same time, creating frozen moment from multiple angles. A computer then immediately stitches the frames together and animates the moment into a boomerang-style video with a 3D parallax effect- ready to be shared, uploaded, and viewed instantly.
Not just novel concept, but an insanely fun party trick- the MOTUSREDʼs retro motion-revamp of the old-fashioned snapshot has become a hotly-desired addition to some of the cityʼs best events; and a party in and of itself.
