Astronauts, etc. — The Border

I edited and composited this hazy video for Astronauts, etc.'s "The Border".

I tracked and composited a series of recursive TV screens to blend together multiple takes / camera moves to give the illusion of one long move in and out of a TV. Mocha was essential for the screen tracks, but a certain amount of hand-tracking and manual distortion had to be done to digitally smooth out the camera and transition to full-frame shots within the TV.
