Enjoy images of EMU’s past year accompanied by The Walking Roots Band singing “Come Down, O Love Divine.” This stop motion video is made up of over 5,500 photographs and used a shaped bokeh camera filter to “change” the shapes of the lights in the background. The photographs were taken in Eastern Mennonite University’s Common Grounds Coffeehouse.
