REAR WINDOW LOOP (2010)

Golden Nica 2012 & Vimeo Remix Award 2012

 

a visual installation by Jeff Desom

based on footage from Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" (1954)

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.

Software used: After Effects / Photoshop

Technical Requirements:

-Duration: 20 min
-Full Resolution: 2400x600px
-Projection surface approx.10x2 meters by aligning 3 projectors
-Matrox TripleHead2Go
-Computer to play quicktime in loop mode
