Not quite Hyperlapse - this is a HyperRelapse. This video was conceived and shot for the band Human Pyramids and is made up of over 5,000 hi-res stills posed individually to synch up with various parts of the song...

It's a bit like a post-punk orchestral version of Where's Wally! See description to play 'spot the cool stuff...'

Even big sexy Vimeo encoding can't really handle the speed 5000+ stills so feel free to download the original high bitrate mp4 to melt your eyeballs with here:

If anyone wants to go all out and see the full on Pro Res HQ version then just email me john [at]

Otherwise watch in HD / or over a good connection on a hi-res mobile device!
