Clowning Around

Check this out:

It’s a commercial (for Phillips TVs), yes, but a brilliant one.  Adam Berg, through some amazing combination of CGI and live-action filming (and maybe some still photography?) basically constructed an uninterrupted tracking shot to rival the one at the beginning of Touch of Evil (rival, perhaps, but not beat — considering that shot was a minute longer and was shot on film with no digital trickery).

I have no idea how Berg did it, but it’s pretty cool.  And like the opening of Touch, it’s a self-contained story.  I like it.
