Interrupt: A Slow-Motion Audiovisual Experience of Daily Life in Southeast Asia

Earlier this year, filmmaker and musician Paul Wex traveled through a number of countries in Southeast Asia. Instead of using standard photos or video to document his trip, Wex decided to create an “audiovisual neurotic slow-motion experience” of the everyday things he saw. What resulted is the short film above, titled “Interrupt.”

The First Ever Phantom 4K 1000FPS Drone Footage

Crashing and destroying your drone is painful on your wallet, but it’s not usually the cost of a house. The video above is different. It’s documents the first ever drone flight to involve a Phantom 4K camera mounted to an Aerigon UAV.

“The title of this will either be ‘The most technical advanced drone camera flight of all time,’ or ‘The quarter-million-dollar crash’,” says one team member.

Slow-Motion Wedding Ring Shots Captured with Fire, Water, and Gravity

Archie and Sansan of the Manila, Philippines-based wedding videography service Alt X Videos sent in this little bit of inspiration for wedding ring shots. It’s a collection of their best clips and concepts, many of which are “not for the faint hearted” (the couple says they won’t ever try some of the clips again).

Their goal was to make “heart stopping” ring shots for newlyweds by using fire, water, and gravity in creative — but risky — ways. Everything was captured with a Sony FS700.

Watch How DSLR Shutters Work in 10,000FPS Super Slow Motion

If you want to see the mechanics of how a modern DSLR shutter works, one way to do so is through slow-motion captured with a high-speed camera. That’s what Gavin Free of The Slow Mo Guys recently did by pointing a Phantom Flex at his Canon 7D and capturing what goes on inside the mirror box during exposures of various shutter speeds.

By slowing down the movements after shooting at up to 10,000 frames per second, we get to see exactly what goes on in the camera in the blink of an eye.

Slow Motion Footage of 150 Mouse Traps Going Off in a Chain Reaction

Thanks to The Slow Mo Guys, we get to start off the weekend with something cool, albeit not all that related to photography per se (if you want that, check out this in-depth star photography tutorial we published just a couple of posts back).

What the Phantom Flex-toting duo decided to film this week was slow motion footage of 150 mousetraps going off in a chain reaction, just like you used to see in the cartoons. After meticulously (and nervously) setting up all of the traps, Dan bites the bullet and slams his hands down on the table. What lasted about a second turns into a minute of mesmerizingly painful footage.

Enjoy, and don’t try this at home… or at the very least don’t blame us if you do.

Captivating Slow Motion Macro Footage of a Match Head Catching Fire

When we shared photographer Adam Magyar’s talk in which he describes the techniques he used to capture the mesmerizing photos and footage in his portfolio, he said ‘everything looks cool in slow-motion.’ And even though he’s probably right, we would add an Orwellian addendum to that statement: ‘but some things look cooler than others.’

That’s the case with this macro footage of a match head lighting on fire, which was captured at 4,000fps by Emmy Award-winning cinematographer and founder of UltraSlo, Alan Teitel. Read more…

Freerunners Play with Colored Powder and Smoke Granades in Insane Slow Mo Video

Sometimes, the right shot requires a beautifully minimalistic approach that subtly tugs on the heart strings… other times, you throw the freaking kitchen sink at it and come out with something that defies adjectives. The video above falls into the latter category. Read more…
