The third film in the Amazing in Motion series ‘Strobe’ saw a series of performers in LED suits soaring above the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
The ‘Lightmen’ were positioned on the rooftops of some of the tallest buildings in the Malaysian capital, dressed in custom-made LED suits.
These were linked to a purpose-built computer system controlling each LED’s strobe pattern, one by one, creating a breathtaking display of illuminated figures seemingly flying above the city.
A team of 40 expert engineers erected and controlled the giant rigging system from which the Lightmen were suspended.
The LED suits were designed by Hollywood costumier Vin Burnham – creator of the Batsuit for the Batman movies.
Their work took cues from Lexus vehicles, including the hallmark spindle grille and the LED headlights featured on the RC F high-performance coupe.
The suits took six weeks to make, each one containing 1,680 LEDs, all wirelessly controlled to strobe on demand.
