Best film course promo ... ever!

Steve Taylor is already a bit of a legend in the Christian alternate rock arena, and has a mighty sized sense of humour to go with it. (It tends to come in handy.)

He also teaches film. See the course promo here:


I for one would like to know how they pulled off all the tricks in the video.

Re: Best film course promo ... ever!

Brilliant!

As a guess, I suspect (after only one viewing) that the sunglass and lens cap shots were (partly) done with the aid of thin thread pulling them off, then played in reverse?...maybe composite shots.... but the skill in which those 50 seconds were put together is amazing.

Superb stuff!

I've gone through the video (download the original file from Vimeo) on a frame by frame basis and that lens actually locks on to the camera properly. Awesome lens throw.
