Monday music: "End Love," by OK Go

From Yurie Hwang. We've done this group before: they seem to make creative videos and (imho) obnoxious music. Once again, the music in the following vid isn't even in the same restaurant as my cup of tea, but the video itself worth a watch (one watch) for the creativity. Heck, mute your computer, put on some classic Chicago song, and watch.


Blurb:
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.

The goose scenes impress most. They're notoriously hard to negotiate contracts with.

The sweatsuits really creeped me out.

The scene where they are just standing by the water and the time lapse takes you from afternoon to night time... that is commitment to your craft. (Sleeping bag scene, too).

Was that DJP as one of the dancers in the park running around the band? Tsk, tsk. ;-)
