Pinhole Music Video

I got a beautiful 6x9 wooden pinhole camera for my birthday this year, and while I haven't yet had an opportunity to run out and use it, I have been searching through the interwebs for tips on exposure, etc. I'll be posting about the camera once I have some time with it, but in my searching I found this video that I wanted to share.

It's a music video for London Grammar and the majority of it was shot with a handmade 360ยบ circular rig that surrounds the subject. 35mm film is fed all the way around, and a cloth covering the 625 pinholes is lifted prior to firing a strobe as the subject makes their "move". The black-and-white negative film was then processed on-site in buckets filled with chemicals.
