Have you ever imagined what the courtyard of the apartments from Alfred Hitchcock's film "Rear Window" looked like in full? Videographer and special effects master Jess Desom has done just that. Using After Effects, Desom pieced together the scenes from the famous Greenwhich Village courtyard and all of the tenants' happenings into a cohesive three minute video. The results of his work are phenomenal and kind of mind blowing, providing never-before-seen perspective on a popular film.

Desom has also done visual work for the likes of NRP & WNYC’s Radiolab in their video "Words."

Watch below for Jess Desom's version of "Rear Window":
