I only like Chuck Klosterman when he writes articles.

Filmmaker Jeff Desom dissected Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Rear Window and reassembled it digitally into a time-lapse of a single panoramic composite shot.

I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.
