We've previously posted the band OK Go's innovative music videos, including their Rube Goldberg machine and brass band versions of "This Too Shall Pass", as well as their treadmill dancing video. All of those videos were shot in one take, and this new one is no different. The director of "End Love" writes about how his team created the video's visual effects by altering the film speed:
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.
