State Fair in stop motion

Midwest Brigadoon – trailer from Ochen K. on Vimeo.

Can’t wait another week for your annual dose of the Minnesota State Fair?

It turns out you don’t have to.

This Sunday the Southern Theater premieres a new film that distills all twelve days of Great Minnesota Get-Together into just 25 minutes.

Ochen Kaylan recorded over 1,000 hours of footage at last year’s Minnesota State Fair. He set up more than 20 stop-motion cameras around the grounds to capture the process of constructing and dismantling the 320 acre festival, which brings in 1.8 million people each year.

You can find out more about the film, and the instpiration for its name, here.
