Asiago are an alternative/indie rock band from Trondheim, Norway. Their music video for "Wake Up In A Fire" features the singer, Kristian Skauge, walking towards a camera while the song is playing at 1/5 speed. He had to lip sync and walk in 1/5 speed as well while everything and everyone else in the video acted in normal speed, making for an interesting combination when the music and video was sped up five times.
The extras in the video dressed and undressed Kristian in normal time as he walked and sang at slow speed. The result was that it looked like they dressed and undressed him really fast while he did some awkward moves. A dog also came into the picture at one point, trying to drag Kristian with him out of the frame.
The shot was done in one take, all over 20 minutes, and in cold Norwegian weather (about -20 C degrees). Check out Asiago's new EP at http://www.asiago.no/.
