Portraits in Dramatic Time by David Michalek

As part of the 2011 Lincoln Center Festival, Whitehouse editor Johnny Luisi composed this trailer from 40 video portraits of film and theater actors including Alan Rickman, William H. Macy, Lily Taylor, and Liev Schreiber, shot by artist and director David Michalek for an exhibit entitled Portraits in Dramatic Time.

The video portraits featured the actors acting out a scene, and were shot using a slow motion technique involving a fixed high speed, high definition camera recording several thousand frames per second at 10 to 15 second intervals. The installation was displayed on an 85 ft by 45 ft screen that hung in front of the David H. Koch Theater during July this year.
