A collaboration with Vivid Sydney, Georgia Hill and Iris Worldwide to create a unique lightpainting app.

A commissioned ad for Bacardi, using stop-motion light painting techniques shot in Sydney with Henry Zalapa. I think the guys at Bacardi liked what they saw as they used it for the opening and the end of the video.

172 Fire Twirlers broke the Guiness World Record for most people twirling fire simultaneously. The old record was 117. “Sydney on Fire” is a Group Volunteers united by Talin, 6 who tragically passed away from a tumor this year.

We have managed to break the Fire-Twirling Guinness Book World Record in Talin’s Memory and to raise funds for Bear Cottage an organisation that helps kids with terminal illnesses and their parents through these tough times. Thank you to everyone involved for making this an unforgettable event.

“Tiger Beer opens the door to the pulse of Sydney through the eyes of light painter Alex Kesselaar and friends. See the megacity’s unique light and watch it come to life in the darkness.”

This is a Video in the Asian Mega Cities Mini Series by Tiger Beer that features my Light & Fire Painting Photography. It was very interesting being in front of the Camera for once.

The Fire Artists on the shoot were the awesome Dan Farr & Kevin Lynch aka Kev Twirl.
