The light-painting tubes that I'm using are not always easy to find. But it's ok, there are some solutions. In this video, Kim and I explore a few options that you guys can do to roll your own tube. The cake collar seems to be a good solution as it's available from pretty much everywhere.

--- About the Tube Stories
We're a dancer/photographer duo making our way using a tube, a feather, and a flashlight. Everything we do is lit by hand, one frame at a time. Light-painting for us is a lifestyle, and this is what we share with our audience. The purpose of the Tube Stories is to bring a brighter and more colorful night to whoever is going to cross our path. Our work has been presented on the BBC, CNN, MTV, VICE, TEDx and much more.
