There's something about Thorsten Hary's video for The Satellite Year's Jelly, Jelly, How To Survive Such A Trip that defies belief - and we're not just talking about that songtitle.

Thorsten describes it as a "soundtrack video for a movie that doesn't exist" and his "humble homage to $100m Hollywood action films, but done on a tiny budget as a side project." And the result is a rapidfire succession of clips that look suspiciously like they actually came from several action/spy/blockbuster.

In fact, Thorsten - who's based in Saarland in Germany - directed, shot, edited, and did the visual effects on this himself, in his downtime over the summer. "I shot this as a side project on evenings/weekends over the course of the summer, depending on the availability of certain locations and props, since i was mostly just calling in favours," he says. "I also shot some B-Roll while traveling. Everything was shot on the Canon 5D. It did all the postproduction/colorgrading on weekends and during nights in the first two weeks of September."

Which makes this a remarkable achievement - and still a bit unbelievable.
