Wow. Stunning!

Thanks for sharing that. Way cool effect. I wonder how large the files were at 960 fps? I'm guessing pretty massive.

Frame rates make little difference with digital video.

File size is dictated by bit rate per second, not frames. With a digital camera, the shutter is either open for recording, or shut because it is not.
So video quality settings and bit rate is what your dealing with primarily.

It looks like Cinematography, without all the extra work. }:>)

If you could adjust the aperture for background blurring, it would look very close to typical Cinematography.

It is a lot like Cinematography.

What makes it kinda cool though is that the lights in the scenes are still flashing and if you look real close
at some of the peoples feet you can see them moving ever so slowly.

What the phone cameras can do today. Unreal

Yeah, neat stuff. 
I would think the speed you pass everyone at, is critical to getting a good looking shot/effect.
I would think whoever shot it  practiced the art for a while.

Indeed, it was odd as some of the lights appeared to be "strobing". And I'm guessing they do that all the time but we just never notice because it's happening so fast?

For example, the bus sign at 1:48. And the room at 2:00.

I'm a bit confused. Are we meaning to say "Cinemagraph" here where we are saying "Cinematography"?

cin·e·ma·tog·ra·phy
/ˌsinəməˈtäɡrəfē/

noun
the art of making motion pictures.
"home movie footage with superb cinematography"

Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs, forming a video clip. They are published as an animated GIF or in other video formats, and can give the illusion that the viewer is watching an animation.

Saw something off YouTube that popped up that was related to this video somehow. It's a site called YouTube Doubler. Looks like it allows you to somehow mix two YouTube videos together? Perhaps using the sound track from one for the other?

Not sure how useful it may be, but it looked interesting for messing about.
