Video Going Viral: Man Walking Forwards, Backwards
Posted by: Patrick OBrien, Digital Director - email
We've seen many users on YouTube take use the tricks of today's technology to play a video backwards to make it appear to be moving forward. This video "Forward" gives you that slow-motion mesmerizing effect, and it is getting a lot of viral attention on YouTube.
It's a great execution of that idea by the lead character, filmmaker Messe Kopp, even though most of the surroundings are shown backwards. What's brilliant about this video is how perfect the subject seems to walk forward, even though he's actually walking backwards. This video is shot through the streets of downtown Jerusalem.
