Recently featured as a Vimeo staff pick, this short from Marco-Antoine Locatelli is a beautiful, black-and-white sequence that showcases a dancer "interacting" with animated light. At times, Lucas Boirat seems to be struggling to control the white beams, while other moments see him masterfully manipulating the motion graphics into a variety of shapes. Locatelli's edits are frequent, but they're executed in such a way that the video is perfectly matched with its soundtrack. And by having his dancer step back into the dark after each sequence, the director is able to make the whole performance come together more cohesively. And as it turns out, "Nuance" is also GIF-friendly; Vimeo went to the trouble of compiling some highlights from the video.
