Nikon gave us a D810 and asked us to make a film experimenting with the camera's low light capabilities.

Using 4 Nikon flashes, a 20 meter track and 84 foam board animal frames, we created ‘Nightlife' - A sequence of looped, unedited photographs using a combination of different flashes and exposures. The camera EXIF data on each shot shows the settings used. 

The film was showcased at Nikon’s Motion Gallery in Japan, picked up a Vimeo Staff Pick with over 90k views and featured on blogs including Creative Review, and Vice’s Creators Project.
