New York-based film production company Variable produced this bewitching short capturing India’s Holi Festival. Filmed in ultra-high speed and crystal definition, the festive explosion of color is displayed in syrupy slow-motion.


(Hat tip to Kris C. for the pick)

The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world…

…so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it’s unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
