Something Wonderful: 2D Photography's Rube Goldberg Promo

AKA: "When Bad Things Happen in Good Photography Studios." Back story @ 2D Photography Inc. | Rube Goldberg

The Rube Goldberg video genre now has a long and fascinating history on YouTube. (OK Go's "This Too Shall Pass" Rube Goldberg Machine video‬‏ from March of this year has cracked 28 million views.) This is certainly one of the best to date.

Of course it doesn't look easy to do and it wasn't. A video explaining the genesis and execution of the project follows the jump; a video whose motto is "If at first you don't succeed, try another 99 times."

It took us 99 takes. Full setup up of the machine took both myself, and my assistant, Kevin about 1 hour and we had 6 days of filming. -- Dave
