India knows how to party. The Hindu Holi festival celebrates the end of winter and arrival of spring, and it’s one of the most joyful and least religious of all the Hindu celebrations, with traditional social barriers easing and the streets ariot with people throwing colorful, perfumed powders on one another. Holi is already like something out of a dream, but the crew at Variable Productions made it even more surreal by shooting with high-speed Phantom cameras and creating a video that has the depth of still photography with the dynamic of motion. Their work in this clip is simply stunning. Full screen mandatory.
