Ryan Enn Hughes's 360 Project uses a Muybridge-inspired setup of 48 sychnronized cameras to capture dance in 360 degree rotation.  

Ryan Enn Hughes's 360 Project uses a Muybridge-inspired setup of 48 sychnronized cameras to capture dance in 360 degree rotation. In this piece, a strobe light helps slice the movements of krumping into microthin moments, which are then animated to an original soundtrack.

The second piece features dancers from Canada's National Ballet School for a traditional counterpount to krumping. 

The behind-the-scenes video reveals the amazing amount of planning and technology, including 48 Nikon D700s, that went into creating these videos.
