Running backwards in reverse

I’m sure that many of us have taken part, usually as children, in a ‘backwards race’ where everyone is required to run backwards. You may at some point have wondered what it would look like if you filmed such a race and then ran the film of the race in reverse. Well, wonder no more because here it is.

    Hmmm, that worked OK in preview, but not when I posed the comment. Next time, I’ll do my homework first using here and starting at U+200E

    What caught my eye in that shot was the guy in the red sweatshirt who must have been on a normal walk.

    This reminds me of the film “Bringing out the Dead.” The filmmakers achieved a “dreamlike” effect in one scene by having the actors perform the scene in reverse, then running that footage backwards in the film.
