  1. Look! Matchbox and Tonka Trucks. Srsly, that’s what it looks like. Love it. This is awesome!

    Being culturally uninformed, music-wise, can someone tell me the name of the group/artist on the soundtrack? thx!

  2. @#4. Thank you! I was watching it in episodes here at work, and in my haste to post how cool it was, clicked forward before it ended. D’oh!

  3. …Man, I get more amd more interested in doing my own tilt-shift stills. Wonder if there’s a MAKE version of a cheap lens for a Canon Digital Rebel as there is for a macrolens using a Pringle’s can as an extender?

  4. So wait a minute, are these actually miniatures or is this just the effect of the tilt-shift still shots of an actual event strung together? Some of the people shots looked amazingly detailed if this was miniatures.

  5. I am sick of the tilt-shift craze. While this (TS and the stop motion/ffw’d) video is well done, the meme is dead to me.

    1. the meme is dead to me.

      Thank you so much for confiding your boredom to us. You have enriched our lives.

  6. the part where all the little cars dance around at about the 1:45 mark was, truthfully, all i needed.

    wholphin had some pretty amazing tilt-shift video shot from helicopters a couple issues back, my favorite being the single truck raising dust in the nevada desert. it was by olivo barieri, i think.

    it seems to me this whole thing is more effective when the point of view is inhuman, which usually means really high up. otherwise it’s just sort of…meh.

  7. i went away on a government vacation
    it was the best time that I ever had
    shipped me back home from a secret location
    my legs came back later in a plastic bag

    metal papers
    metal pens
    metal hearts
    metal hands

    memorised the rules and learned to behave
    but when i got to school i forgot forgot
    so they put me in a special classroom
    where everybody is a robot robot

    Everything i said about my bad education
    a million broken records have already said
    learning how to live like I’m under sedation
    learning how to live like I’m already dead

    metal papers
    metal pens
    metal hearts
    metal hands

    memorised the rules and learned to behave
    but when i got to school i forgot forgot
    so they put me in a special classroom
    where everybody is a robot robot

  8. Why are the killer parts only shown in time-lapse? There are sections at (near-) realtime, but no jumps or anything. Perhaps they’ve already sold them on the commercial market.

  9. Oh well, this is how uncool I am: this was the first tilt-shift video I’d ever seen and I was entranced.

  10. I’m tilt-shift right now. I can’t tell whether I’m full size or just a miniature of myself. Also, I need to be three inches from my monitor to read it.

  11. #15 – cmmntr xprsss n pnn y dn’t lk, nd yr rspns s t mck hm? Tht sms bt chldsh. Wht dd *yr* rspns dd t th thrd?

    nd frm mdrtr t.

  12. “(For non-photographers out there: yes, $270 is cheap for a lens”

    …Especially for a third-party lens for a Canon Rebel model. Thanks for the link!

  13. Real miniatures can be filmed without so much blur. I refer you to just about EVERY STOP MOTION MOVIE EVER MADE.

  14. Great subject for a stop-motion tilt-shift. It puts into perspective the size of the mind it takes to enjoy such an event.

  15. I hope some band approaches him about using this footage for a clip, as opposed to some production company just ripping it off.

  16. Yes definitely Lensbaby! Their new composer is perfect for staying in one place like this! I preordered one and have had if for a little while now… amazing!
