Shot on Alexa with 50mm Panavision C-Series @ stops between 1.4-2.8 with almost no second takes, so some of this is focus-pulling from the gods.

The dedicated website wasn't functional when I was trying it out but as near as I can figure it lets you, possibly from a clock interface or with some sort of reference, let you see longer segments that were eventually edited into this, described here.

 

I'm not really a fan of this music but I like how simple the concept was and what went into its execution.  Plus, what's not to like looking at footage from what's, for a lot of folks, the gold standard for anamorphics (regardless of soft edges and aberrations).

Likewise, I'm not a big fan if the music but what beautiful lens.

It's like all you need anymore is a hook or chorus and don't even have to sweat the rest of a song...it's the same thing for four minutes.  Oh well.  The visuals are compelling enough that the "song" didn't annoy me too much until I thought about what was actually there, and wasn't there.

I like it, it's a "feel good" song.

On Youtube versions isolating individual hours have started showing up.  Pretty amazing undertaking.  It's the same song looped to fill each hour but well worth checking out.  Some really nice moments and a lot of photographically interesting locations.
