Reverse Filmology

Check out this sick movie I made with some friends...

David Jump!

Wondering how we did it? Click below...

To get the spiderman / the force effect, we simply reversed the clip. This was obvious when I ate the banana, but also with all of the other clips. Everything was done backwards (including the roof jumping :)

There's something about the scene with the sunglasses and the CDs that seems even magical.

I grew up watching The Six Million Dollar Man, so I loved seeing the "bionic" effects.

Very, very cool!

Found this via Dr. Jerz's blog. FANTASTIC filmwork, David. The choreography of the shots is smartly put together and the effect is uncanny. We've all seen this done before, sure, but the "trick" isn't the only thing that works about your film -- it's the timing of the movement and cuts that match the music. Good work. Too bad you're not in my current "Art of Film" class, but you should consider taking some courses at Pittsburgh Filmmakers...keep it in mind for the future.

This is really cool. Like Dr. A mentioned, we can recognize this technique, but you did an outstanding job for not being a professional. Very well put together... I can't say I could do something like this! Wow :-)

David, all I can say is: "That's so boss."
