A Different View Through ‘Rear Window’

I came across this fascinating video created by Jeff Desom that pieces together different shots from Hitchcock’s Rear Window and aligns them all together. But this is not just an image of what the courtyard behind L.B. Jeffries’ apartment would look like in panoramic view. It’s an actual moving video of all the action in the film happening at once and in fast succession. I cannot imaging the work it must have taken to assemble this.

  1. I saw this just the other day – so awesome! What a classic film.

  2. I’m absolutely fascinated by this video. I’m sure it took a long time to put this together, but I bet the hardest part was keeping the timing and continuity right. He did a fantastic job.

  3. This is utterly cool.

  4. Rachel,
    I’m glad you posted this. I saw it over on The Huffington Post and watched it twice. Beautifully done.

    I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
