Lightsaber graffiti artists

A group of young graffiti artists - a Cologne-based crew called Lichtfaktor, first spotted on YouTube - have taken to the streets of London, to create works of art based on the time-lapse photographing of glowsticks.

Sky Movies has commissioned them to produce a short film to coincide with its Star Wars vs Star Trek season, showing this week on Sky Movies Sci-Fi & Horror. (Did you spot members of the SFX team waffling on screen as well?)

Marcel Panne of Lichtfaktor says, "We grew up watching Star Wars and Star Trek, the iconic imagery has provided us with so much inspiration in developing our style of work. We came to London to express this energy and passion through vivid shapes and colours across the capital’s skyline."
