20120229-214030.jpg

Film direc­tor and musi­cian Jar­bas Agnel­li, in part­ner­ship with pho­tog­ra­ph­er and film­mak­er, Keith Loutit, set out to cap­ture this amaz­ing event on cam­era in a way it has never been seen before. In the five days of car­ni­val, the pair shot 167,978 pho­tos, then with mas­ter­ful edit­ing and a sound­track com­posed by Agnel­li him­self, they com­posed a tilt-shift style video from their stills titled The City of Samba.

The final prod­uct is noth­ing less than amazing.
