Video Monday: Rear Window Loop

Video Mondays

By gathering the appropriate scenes and then placing them in one wide shot, filmmaker Jeff Desom created a video installation of the neighborhood events as they unroll in Hitchcock’s film “Rear Window.” I love this.

I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.

The whole thing takes twenty minutes to screen, but below is a time-lapse. Wouldn’t you love to see it in person?

Pretty sweet, right?
