Hallo everyone. Although I'm always looking for interesting stuff in this forums, this happen to be my first topic.
What is one-quarter regular speed?
I just found a really nice video which happen to look like filmed in stop-motion but digging infos in the web I just found this description:

"The video was filmed at one-quarter regular speed. As a result it looks jumpy, as if some of the frames are missing."

Doesn't look jumpy, looks animated, which is different and fantastic, by the way.
The video is made by Chris Hopewell and the band is Radiohead, the song "There, There", pretty easy to find in the net.

Any help is deeply appreciated.

Thanks guys

Giuseppe

it means the video was shot at 6 fps (frames per second) instead of the "standard" rate of 24fps, so the footage will take exactly a quarter of the time to occur as in real time once projected/played at 24fps.

It sounds like it was shot at 6fps but step printed back to 24fps. That would make an effect like you describe.
