WTF? Video Remix Project from OK Go
January 20, 2010
We are pleased to announce a video remix project for our video “WTF?”
We want you, our lovely and creative fans, to remix the WTF? video using the raw footage as shot by filmmaker Tim Nackashi. Tim shot the whole video using a “greenscreen” background like this:
Which allows you to supply your own background layer to the video like this:
So Remix Our Video!
We invite you to:
- Download the raw greenscreen footage and import it into your video editing software.
- Use the greenscreen or chroma key effect to remove the background and generally mess with things to create your own version of the video.
- Upload your version as a video response on YouTube and we’ll embed them all below.
And don’t feel like you need to remix the entire video. A small excerpt is just fine. Here’s an example by our friend Casey Opstad (thanks Casey!).
