Studio Sets Up a Slow-Mo Photo Booth at a Mixer, Gets Hilarious Results

Here’s a little bit of entertainment and humor for your Tuesday afternoon. At a recent mixer they hosted for creative professionals in the ad industry, St. Louis, Missouri-based Bruton Stroube Studios set up a slow motion photo booth and let the party-goers go at it. The above video is a compilation of some of the coolest shots.

The booth consisted of a marked off area and a Phantom Miro high-speed camera; the rest of the shenanigans were entirely up to the attendees. Using the Phantom, they shot 1920 x 1080 resolution video at a crazy 1,500 fps, so there was no missing a moment in this one.

Here are a few highlight pics Bruton put together afterwards:

As you can see, the guests were given anything from buckets of water and beer to boxing gloves and pastries to throw and otherwise use in front of the high-speed rig. Sure, it’s not technically a “photo” booth (although they did pull stills in the end), but the next time you’re entertaining clients or industry peers, keep this idea in mind.

    Quick spellcheck– Bruton Stroube Studios… Also, we were shooting just a tad faster: 1500 fps at 1920×1080

  • Fullstop

    So I guess the venue that you’d like to use this photobooth at must have a tub room.

    Did the little kid at 2:25 pee his pants?

  • Mansgame

    Idiotic nonsense

  • Connor A

    Anyone know the song in the video?

  • James McKenzie

    I know the truth. But pee is funnier. So we’ll go with that.

  • Adam

    This was so good. And I’ve never considered myself a fan of rap, but the music was perfect.

  • Jason DeMoe

    The editing on this is EXCELLENT.
