Moment Mile goes on exhibit as two 100-foot prints today at the Mint Museum Uptown. See the making-of video here and read more about the project below.
In fall 2014, The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film invited photographersâ€”new and seasonedâ€”to participate in Moment Mile. Created and led by Sean Busher, the project sought to build awareness of and support for the museum’sÂ recent re-opening. On 1 November, 138Â photographers gathered in Uptown Charlotte. At 6:15 p.m., the photographers stood in predetermined spots on the mile-long stretch of Tryon Street and simultaneously clicked their shutters. Then, exactly five minutes later at 6:20 p.m., they did so once again on the opposite side of the street. Stitched together, the two resulting prints â€“ each 100 feet long and 11 inches tall â€“capture a single moment of a stretch of Charlotteâ€™s urban core and acts as a historical marker of the city circa 2014.
â€œParticipatory projects like Moment Mile are a new avenue that involve the Charlotte community in what we are doing at The Light Factory, and more broadly involve others in the art of film and photography,â€ said Busher, who is a board member for The Light Factory and a Charlotte advertising photographer.
Moment Mile will be on view from December 17, 2014 through February 22, 2015. The Moment Mile project was generously supported by the Arts & Science Council, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and Wells Fargo.
This project allowed Peter Godshall, our team’s digital imager, to take a break from our usual photo-realistic CGI creations to instead produce this low poly landscape. Even with the low poly export you can see the guy’s shadow on the mountain wall and the beautiful reflections in the waterfall – so cool!
PDNpulse, a professional photography blog by the editors of Photo District News Magazine, has featured Sean’s Moment Mile project with a blog titled “With $10,000 Grant, Photographer Orchestrates Panoramic of Mile-Long Street.”
Check out the blog entry here:
Sean created a project called Moment Mile to bring attention to the reopening of The Light Factory, a photography and film museum in Charlotte, and an institution he has served on the board of for four years. The project Sean created involved orchestrating 138 photographers to line up every 36-feet along Tryon Street in uptown Charlotte and snap a photo at the same instant. It worked! We were able to create the world’s longest panorama (we checked with Guinness), and look forward to sharing the final exhibition with the world soon. Best of all, The Light Factory (and Sean) made the front page (and above the fold too!) of the Charlotte Observer twice in one week! Check out the article from the online edition below.
WFAE’s Lisa Worf interviewed Sean about tomorrow’s big Moment Mile shoot. This will play on NPR today during rush hour on All Things Considered. Check it out here or listen on the WFAE webpage.
Listen to the Moment Mile story here:
The media is taking notice of Sean’s Moment Mile project, which will bring together nearly 150 photographers along Tryon Street in uptown Charlotte to simultaneously snap their shutters in order to create a photo capturing a single moment along a 1.2-mile stretch of our urban core. Today Sean’s on the front (and above the fold!) of The Charlotte Observer. Check out the story:
The Continental Tire marketing team hired us to produce imagery for the sides of their big rigs and delivery trucks, etc. We’re excited that our CGI services have been utilized by this multi-national company once again!
