Vintage Sunset – Sunset, o639 Hours by BalletX

As BalletX wraps up their fall series I decided to see what moments may have looked like from the period the piece was set in. Sunset, o639 Hours, created by choreographer and BalletX Co-Founder Matthew Neenan and award-winning New Zealand composer Rosie Langabeer, is a full-length ballet which interprets the dramatic, true story of aviation pioneer Captain Edwin Musick’s fateful 1938 airmail flight across the Pacific.

What if there were found photos from that time, what would they have looked like? So I took some moments I captured from dress rehearsal, added an Alien Skin Wet Plate filter and this is what I got.
