How OK Go Warped Time

The boys of OK Go are known for their geeky music videos and they outdo themselves constantly. So how did they top the crazy Rube Goldberg Machine from the "This Too Shall Pass" video? By warping time, of course.

In the music video for "End Love" the video footage was sped up and slowed down to produce impressive looking effects:

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.

Results? Amazing-looking and geeky as always. [Discovery via Nerdcore via Neatorama]
