    Link: Evol - A very well-shot video clip of two people who fall in love in a backwards world. It must have taken days to film this.

    They should have filmed people going frontwards, and superimposed themselves onto the scene, wile it went backwards, because you can clearly see everyone is walking backwards as opposed to walking frontwards in reverse.

    pretty cool and cute, except, were they moving forwards or backwards?
    kinda confusing, they seemed as if they were swithing at times...

    ^ I think they were switching things at times, that`s what caught the guy`s attention in the first (or last?) place - she was drinking her juice.

    Very well done. Small flaws here and there, but easy to overlook thanks to an enjoyable performance.

    I thought it was really incredible. The fact that they could choreograph the dance in reverse amazes me. I tried to imagine how they did each part in reverse,but my mind just doesnt work like that. I want to download it and watch the whole thing backwards, or frontwards, as it were.

    The point of having everyone else in "reverse" was that the girl stood out to the man, he had never seen anyone but him drinking something and emptying the glass. So it represents that this woman is his perfect match.

    As far as I can tell, EVERYTHING that was filmed with people in the background was choreographed to be filmed with the two actors moving backwards. Anything without background movement was filmed forwards. That is nothing short of amazing due to the work involved on everyone`s part; the actors, the director, the camera operator, the choreographer, incredible work.

    FeyLovett hit the nail on the head about the two of them finding one another who moves forwards in a world full of backwards-moving people.

    The filming would be easy. In all the shots save the close-ups of the girl, they act in reverse. Then they just reversed the film, and presto, reverse guy now seems normal and the rest of the world looks odd.

    Yes, Denmarkian has it right in terms of the mechanics. I think this kind of film takes the basic premise (in this case, people moving forward in a backward-moving world) and plays with the variations in order to see what other kind of emotional response can be invoked. I don`t think there`s a clean "reason" or "meaning" to this one. It`s fun, and that`s probably the point.

    The girl had great eyes. Worked really well for this.

    Why is it that when things are done, they must always be done again? Taking pictures of yourself every day for years, backwards video clips: they`re all very good--once.

    Yes, that was incredible. Great piece of work. That was art.

    Nightshifter: The girl didn`t necessarily have to spit a mouthful of juice back into her cup. If I remember correctly (which I can`t be bothered to go and confirm), I`m pretty sure the juice thing was one shot, so they could`ve just filmed it normally and put it in that way, but maybe for the complete authenticity she did spit it in. Just a suggestion.
