Microsoft Kinect used to shoot music video

Dan Nixon and Don Jones recently shot a video for the band Echo Lake, featuring its song Young Silence. The video is similar to Radiohead's House of Cards, though simpler). It fits the song's almost dream-like sound well. But the most impressive part? It was filmed using a Microsoft Kinect, not the expensive Geometric Informatics 3D capture technology radiohead used.

Of all the Kinect hacks we've seen in recent months, this one is probably one of the most artistic. Dan and Don shot the entire video using a Microsoft Kinect and various custom Cinder-based apps. According to Dan's Vimeo page, it took seven weeks of work to finish the video.

Not bad for a hacked $300 gaming accessory, eh?
