Most interesting video you’ll see today
The new IAC building in Chelsea (NYC) has one of the world’s largest video screens, and this media professor used it to project the film Run Lola Run, as a sequence of hundreds of stills. The effect is like a real time, moving time-line of the movie.
I hope this professor teaches better than he runs the camera, as his frequent movements annoy, but it’s still worth watching.

Somebody send that professor a link to the Poor Man’s Steadycam.
To be fair, I doubt he thought it’d be bouncing around the internet, but still. He just needed to document the thing, instead of documenting his movement around the thing.
