We Got Time: Making Of

All the animations seen in the music video were created in camera. No stopframe techniques, or computer super-imposing was used; what you see is what rolled off the camera.

The animations in the side-on views were produced by the camera capturing the moving reflections from the mirrored carousels, and the animations in the top-down views were created by matching the cameras frame rate to that of spinning record.

The transitions between each section of animation was created by simply cutting or wiping between the bits of footage.

The music video is the work of David Wilson. Behind the scenes video by Tom Kingsley and Tim Keeling.
