Slipknot video - how did they?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXC1tnyCVKw&feature=user

I understand she moved real slow to do proper time lapse, but how did they make everything blur like it did? Was it possible they used a still camera to 'film' it leaving the shutter open for a few seconds per frame?

Slipknot - Vermillion

Still there for me oddly enough. Not sure how they did it. For some parts I could see possible Green screen that was replaced by the stop motion video or something.

It looks like they just used a slow shutter speed and had her move really slow.

Every thing in the video could have been done with these products....

Color grading - magic bullet " Looks "
http://redgiantsoftware.com/magicbulletlooks.html

Time laps speed changes - " Twixtor "
http://www.revisionfx.com/products/twixtor/gallery/

Motion Blur for speed changes - " Real Smart motion blur "
http://www.revisionfx.com/products/rsmb/overview/

The blur at the start when she blurrs out and the clock comes into focus
is easy to do with "Looks", there is a setting in the plug in called shift/tilt...

Works great for this....

A stop camera (probably digital) with a really slow slow shutter.

There may have been blue screen if the prod-co had more money than time (likely).

It's just a rip off of this video made (non digitally) by Orbital about 10 years ago! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q25Zx6B5HJA

The pull focus to the clock was probably achieved in camera.

I'm thinking this was DSLR.

From what I can tell, this was a relatively low-budget video. I'm thinking all of the downtown L.A. crowd is real people, and they just were working with a DSLR doing long exposures on a small set of sticks to work fast and unobtrusive amongst real people.

I didn't see anything that runs counter to the still camera approach.
