Director Sam O'Hare offers a vision of Coachella, from the air

October 19, 2010 |  6:00 am

New York-based director Sam O'Hare offers maybe the most unusual vision of California's preeminent music festival yet -- one from a three-quarters angle above everything. "Coachelletta" makes judicious use of the tilt-shift technique (you saw the popular Web video visual conceit used in "The Social Network") to render the breadth of the festival and its crowds as an oddly touching miniature. The installation art in particular looks impressively pagan from up there.
