(EriC) On the last episode, we produced a two dollars picture, and that’s a way for us to make sure that the technique is as accessible as possible.

(Kim) But on this one, let’s go to the extreme opposite and make a 2M dollar shot.

(EriC) Just to be clear, I didn’t put that money on the table today to make this one. This is simply the approximate amount that I invested over the last years to get that equipment, but mostly, to build a software that can handle what I had in mind. Multi-camera work is my main business, and light-painting is the driving point to pursue this adventure.
Increasing the number of cameras is mostly about being able to slow down the action and capture a full 360-degree image in various ways in order to push the boundaries of multi-camera art. This is our playground, our dance stage, our creativity arena

There are no light-painting tricks in this new video. But this shows how I turned a personal project into a dream job. In 2012, I worked every day for 3 months before publishing my first-ever light-painting project. I was fully dedicated to this and I knew that if my work would be good enough, I would be published in major photography magazines and then transform this into a real business. There are many ways to achieve your dreams, and I’m sharing my experience with the hope bringing some light in your life.

— About the Tube Stories
We are Kim Henry and Eric Paré. We are a dancer/photographer duo making our way using a tube, a feather, and a flashlight. Everything we do is lit by hand, one frame at a time. Light-painting for us is a lifestyle, and this is what we share with our audience. The purpose of the Tube Stories is to bring a brighter and more colorful night to whoever is going to cross our path. Our work has been presented on the BBC, CNN, MTV, VICE, TEDx and much more.
