The Writing's On The Wall by SpecialGuest

OK Go's music video is comprised of a continuous string of optical illusions, Photo Gus Powell.

We’re proud to present an exclusive behind the scenes video of OK GO’s latest internet sensation 'The Writing’s On The Wall' co-directed by Aaron Duffy, Damian Kulash, Jr. & Bob Partington of SpecialGuest. We spoke to co-director Aaron Duffy in an interview that will be featured in Frame 100 and the September Frame App - to whet your appetite until then, here’s what Aaron had to say about how the production boiled down from a month to one mental day:

'It was a month of concepting, two weeks of which Bob (my co-director) and I had Damian from OK Go here with us, which was great. Then we had a month of build and production, plus a week of rehearsal and two days of shooting which eventually turned into rehearsing and shooting on the last day as we just had to finish it. We shot everything in one day - at noon we were really worried we wouldn’t get it, but we finally finished at 3 AM. It was crazy, I don’t know how to describe it!'

Here is a behind the scenes look of the team making the set for the music video:
