OK Go - Music Video In Zero
'OK Go' created their latest music video in weightlessness, using an airplane that flies in parabolic arcs to train cosmonauts for low-gravity space flight.
This is real.
No green screens or computer graphics imaging was used.
They partnered with Russian S7 Airlines for this gravity inspired performance.
The pop group explains how it was done:
"The longest period of weightlessness that it is possible to achieve in these circumstances is about 27 seconds,
and after each period of weightlessness, it takes about five minutes for the plane to recover and prepare for then next round.
Because we wanted the video to be a single, uninterrupted routine, we shot continuously over the course of 8 consecutive
weightless periods, which took about 45 minutes, total.
We paused our actions, and the music, during the non-weightless periods, and then cut out these sections and
smoothed over each transition with a morph."
Song: "Upside Down & Inside Out" by OK Go.
