For the past few New Year's Eves, Ryan and I have made stop-motion videos to memorialize our nights. The conceit is a little silly -- they're mostly staged portraits from a night -- but they're fun, I think. Making the pictures creates this space of excess celebration and nostalgia, I think, which, for my money, is pretty much what NYE is about. Anyway, this year, we were wondering how we should make the video, and Ryan thought it would be fun to recreate an old Photobooth. He took a picture of Photobooth curtains, brought over his flash, et voila. He shot most of the photos, and you can see them on his Flickr account, but here are some I made.
