Alfred Hitchcock has made some great movies and one could say his attention to detail is one that has been pretty immaculate. Thanks to Hitch’s persistence on shooting multiple scenes from the angle of Jimmy Stewart’s character who is confined to watch his neighbors from a wheelchair. Hopefully you have all seen the film because there are some spoilers in this video…sort of.
Rear Window is one of my favorite Hitchcock films and this video is a damn joy to watch. I would recommend, if possible, watching it on the largest widescreen monitor/HDTV you can to get the full effect. Jeff Desom, the man who created this, used After Effects and Photoshop (as well as coffee) to stitch this together. According to his website (http://www.jeffdesom.com/hitch/), he used this loop as a video installation at a bar/club. Now, I wanna know where the hell the bar is!
If you haven’t see Rear Window, you should pick up the DVD now!
