OK Go: The Writing's On The Wall (Music Video)
"The Writing's On The Wall" is the first single from the band's new album, Hungry Ghosts, which will be released on October 14. While the song concerns a relationship that may be at its end, the dizzying video, packed with optical illusions that blur the line between reality and imagination, affirms that OK Go is still very much in love with the video-making process.
Directed by Aaron Duffy, OK Go's Damian Kulash and Bob Partington, "The Writing's On The Wall" is the first video shot with the yet-to-be-released Panasonic LUMIX GH4, which utilizes 4K video recording technology. Like all of OK Go's videos, "The Writing's On The Wall" is a single shot video. However, preparations for that single shot took two months and involved 61 run-throughs. The anamorphic illusions seen on screen are a tip of the hat to artists Felice Varini, Georges Rousse and Dan Tobin-Smith.
