Paint as Cinema

Thick fluid swaths of color, passing, moving, falling but never landing. Animated, edited, not computer-generated, OiO is an award-winning film that captures paint in motion. 540 liters (146 gallons) of paint were flung against a contrasting background on a shooting stage at the National Film Board of Canada in Montreal. The results were composited and edited in what the creators call "cinepainting."

The MPEG movie clip is beautiful, and the DVD is available for both institutions and individual purchase.
