A rather excellent video for Disco by composer Ralf Hildenbeutel directed by Boris Seewald and featuring impressionistic visions of real life dancers Althea Corlett and Simone Schmidt.

The technique (best known in the video for A-Ha’s ‘Take on Me’) is called rotoscoping and involves the painstaking animation of drawings and paintings created, in this case, from photo transparencies.

      Richard Linklater also did the rotoscoped movie adaptation of A Scanner Darkly, which is fantastic. And while it’s not a particularly movie, Ralph Bakshi’s Lort of the Rings has some very cool rotoscoping.
