Hello sorry - would you mind expanding on how you shot this? When you say FullHD "crop" movie and then varying exposure time - do you mean the length of the video or the shutter speed? Sorry, bit of a noob question!

Shutter speed. Each image in the animation was compiled from a separate video file, so there's many video files and each can have its own settings such as shutter speed -- though I would recommend to keep a constant exposure, it was an error of mine as I was searching for best settings.
