OK Go thinks it’s ok to flaunt their creative skills even a year later? Haven’t they had enough fun taunting us with their unbelievable creativity?
In case you didn’t see the music video for their song, “The One Moment”, probably better you didn’t because there’s too much good stuff to handle, the video was filled with carefully orchestrated drops and explosions to birth a marvelous extravaganza of pure awesome. Guitars exploding, paint flying everywhere alongside flying members of the band, and well timed watermelons being obliterated.
Pretty pathetic, right?
Well they’ve recently uploaded a video detailing the ‘tricky-nometry’ that went into the making of the video.
In order to make everything happen at precise moments, a crazy amount of math went into calculating when each element needed to happen in order to hit on a beat of the song.
The band had to make all calculations based on frame rates they would use, and where the camera would be at what time. What made it all even more challenging was the use of a super slow motion camera.
Granted it was one of the coolest music videos I’ve ever seen, but that still doesn’t take away from my raging jealousy.
I guess if getting some sweet inspiration for future projects or just being entertained is your thing, you should watch this.
