The Hitchcock classic 'Rear Window' can now be viewed in its entirety in under three minutes thanks to the short video by Jeff Desom. The ambitious filmmaker created the clip by taking apart and piecing back together 'Rear Window' using After Effects. Jeff Desom's video is shot from the perspective of James Stewart's character, gazing out the window into the yard of the surrounding apartments.

The video is accompanied by the energetic tune of Brahms Hungarian Waltz, endowing the clip with its own individual cinematic vibe. While you may not get to appreciate the superb acting and suspenseful action of Hitchcock's masterpiece in Jeff Desom's version, the events in the clip do occur in the same order as in the complete version. Intricate and impressive, Rear Window in under three minutes demonstrates Desom's impressive technical abilities.
