On Guns n' Roses videoclip Garden of Eden

Hi everyone,

Not sure this is the right place to ask but I felt like I might as well give it a try:

Does anybody know how was the video Garden of Eden from Guns n Roses made?
I ask because something was done to the footage and I'm not sure what it was. If they added some stroboscopic effect to it or if the speed of the song was changed just to record the video and then the speedo of the footage was changed afterwards or how did they do it?

Any other info (like who directed it) would be really appreciated!
Cheers!
Cesar

It just looks sped up, the band probably lip synced to a version that was 300-400% slower, Axel moved around faster and the others moved around slowly. Another giveaway is the drummer doesn't do the fills on camera.

No info on the director :/

I think you are right. I used that effect in a video before, slow down the shoot then speed it up in post. But nothing with this much going on for this long of a shot. If they shot slow and then sped up, I was expecting the symbols to reciprocate less. But I would still have to go with Angelo on this.

Thanx guys.

I also think that the director made axl move more and it feels for me like its speed is accelerated.
My problem is that when I try to slow the speed in FCP to check how it would look it does not look natural.
Another thing a friend of mine said that the video speed wasnt changed and that the effect was caused because they were shooting with a very high shutter speed. What do you think?
