Saturday Eye Candy. “Night Stroll” by Tao Tajima

Night Stroll from tao tajima on Vimeo.

According to Tao Tajima, the idea for this video came to him as he would walk home late at night in Tokyo listening to music. As he walked he would visualize the shapes in his mind. This video is the recreation of what he saw in his head.

I love the nice rhythmic animations that follow the tempo of the music without distracting from the live footage. The 3D tracking matches the perspective of each shot so well, and the simplicity of the shapes just work.

“I simply visualized the images I was seeing,” Tajima tells us. “I think anyone who’s walked home at night listening to music has experienced this feeling,”
