Holi (Hindi: होली), is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus. It is primarily observed in Indic countries. Holi is also referred to as the ‘Festival of Colors,’ which is a celebration of a new season.
The filmmakers at the production company Variable decided to document Holi with a Phantom Flex, a high-speed camera that can record upwards of 10,000 frames per second — creating a breathtaking slow motion video of an exuberant celebration through colors and culture.
Why the creative team with Variable made this film: The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world…so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it’s unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
