Shot and composed completely on an I-phone 4s, One-man-band Shingo Ohno or 'Merce Death' has managed to create an original piece of work (and very novel method of directing) to help soothe his commuting blues.
Ohno came up with the concept for the music video after he became a regular commuter following the earthquake last year. He and his family moved to Hakata and he found himself flying between Fukuoka and Tokyo almost every weekend.
Not content to merely capture the sights outside of the window in a photograph - Ohno went one step further to revive his commute:
"The views and sceneries from the airplane window were always beautiful and extraordinary. I enjoyed taking pictures on Instagram on the plane. Soon after, I started to seek ways to use this unusual opportunity to be flying through the sky all the time to create something."
The video was shot over 50 flights and Ohno even built a special bracket to hold his phone steady whilst capturing the breathtaking shots of Japanese countryside and the majestic Mount Fuji.

We love the sheer scale of the project and Shingos dedication to going that little step further than a simple snap of a phone camera lens.
Before you try it yourself - airplane mode was switched on the whole way through the process...so please be safe...
