1250fps from a Sony FX1!

By , August 1, 2009

As part of a larger, SFX-filled, production – I needed to create a shot where our bungee-jumper appeared to slow down mid-air, almost to a standstill – but not quite…

I also wished to emphasise the effect by creating a flock of birds to fly through the shot, and a car driving along the road (at normal speed). These objects were created in post on the computer as opposed to being manipulated from original video clips. The final result takes 5 frames of video, and turns it into a 10 second “hanging in the air” moment. Once calculations have been considered, then this is the equivalent of our cam shooting at 1250fps… This is another working example of our use of intricate, Hollywood, softwares in order to deliver THE final effect.
