A trippy music video made from a scanned iPad

Santiago Carrasquilla, a designer at Sagmeister and Walsh, and his friend Joe Hollier created one of the coolest video of the year so far. It’s for a song by Gabriel Garzón-Montano called “Everything Is Everything”, and boy is it awesome to watch. Here’s how they did it.

1. Shot a bunch of live action footage. The main character is a man who has played guitar on the corner of 23rd St. and 7 Ave. for the past 10 years.
2. Put the video into an iPad then scanned the it while the films were playing.
3. After gathering thousands of these images they were then re-organized to make what essentially is a stop motion film.

It takes a little while to get going, so if you’re impatient jump to the 1:08 mark for the good stuff.
