OK GO – single shot video

They did the treadmills, they did the Reub Goldberg Machine.

Now they’ve done another epic video for their latest song End Love.
And this time, it’s got a goose in it.

Utterly amazing…

Director Jeff Lieberman says:

The fastest we go is 172,800x, compressing 24 hours of real time into a blazing 1/2 second. The slowest is 1/32x speed, stretching a mere 1/2 second of real time into a whopping 16 seconds. This gives us a fastest to slowest ratio of 5.5 million. If you like averages, the average speed up factor of the band dancing is 270x. In total we shot 18 hours of the band dancing and 192 hours of LA skyline timelapse – over a million frames of video – and compressed it all down to 4 minutes and 30 seconds!
Oh and don’t forget, it’s one continuous camera shot.
We also made a special friend in the process. Her name is Orange Bill and she’s a goose. You will agree that she clearly has a future in music videos.

Traditionalists will realise that you can’t post music videos which mess around with the speed of time without linking to the black and white Airsteam caravan inspired brilliance that is Radiohead’s Street Spirit (Fade Out).
I will do this here.
In fact, no I won’t – I’ll go one step further and post it up:

Wow. Memories, anyone?

  1. Think I’ll check this out when I get home. The treadmill was an awesome one. I’d never seen the 2nd Video either.
