Q. Yellow (Hallo).......Watching the video for Yellow , one can easily think it was shot in ONE TAKE. Was it, or is it just cleverly shot?? Well, either way its cleverly shot.....please answer, otherwise am banging my head against the wall here......no wall deserves that!

The Oracle replies:

It was actually all down to clever techniques. It took about an hour to shoot and they ran through the song 5 times*. After the film was processed it went through a process called gradual grade that gave the impression of the day changing.
*Another interesting bit of information is the track was running at double speed, as was the camera. What you see is the film at its normal speed giving the effect of it looking slightly slower than normal.
