the official video:
OK-Go performs with a k9-troupe accompanied by White Knuckle-.

see if U can count the [individual] dogs, LOL - and watch for a cameo-appearance by livestock. Wink

from the video:
Special thanks to: Lauren Henry and Roland Sonnenburg and their team of trainers from Talented Animals,
the town of Corvallis OR for being so welcoming to us, NYPro for donating the space.

How OK Go Went to the Dogs in Their New Video


'making of' blog, TALENTED ANIMALS


Quote :
...we all sat around throwing out ideas and getting more and more excited: we had come up with some really great ideas that seemed achievable in a short of amount of time and we all thought would make a great video.

Then Damian said something that sent a chill up my spine:
"Oh, by the way, this will be done in one take, with no cuts…"
Now for those of you who have never worked an animal on film, we use cuts and optimal camera angles for everything.
They are the tools that let us succeed. Without cuts, the animals would have to all work at the same time with their trainers far away, and we would need to get each
dog and trainer and bandmember and crewmember to nail every single behavior all in the same take.
Not bloody likely.

caption from a photo: QUOTE,
We developed an almost entirely new language for this
video. Each of the 21 "sections" of the video had a name.
Each prop had a name, and most of the animal behaviors
had names. We would spend much of the day saying things
like, "Can Sequel other foot Tim before he chung chungs
over the popcorn wangs?"

that literally made me laugh out-loud; loved it! Grin
turned out that choreographing 12 trainers OFF-camera plus furniture-movers, etc, was the biggest headache.

well-worth reading in entirety, IMO. ;-)
