Film: Cy Kuckenbaker reorders midday traffic into colour order!

Posted by Rob Alderson,

San Diego-based creative Cy Kuckenbake is a man of broad artistic tastes. A glance through the Vimeo page of this innovative filmmaker and photographer reveals that his work swings from Bush League, a multi-award-winning “ character driven ethnographic survey of a tiny village in Northern Malawi” to experiments with editing everyday footage to create extreme visual effects. The latest of these sees him filming the roads round his hometown during the busy midday period, then reordering the footage so that the cars going past become colour-coded. It’s meticulously done and you get more of an insight into how and why Cy did this on the nice Creators Project behind-the-scenes below.

Also worth checking out his work on planes landing/taking off at San Diego airport if you missed them when they did the rounds a few months ago.
