Stuck in Motion
Just been checking out some of Trey Ratcliffs’ ‘Stuck in Motion video and think they are pretty cool.
Basically it is slow mo filmed on a fairly cheap (although not that cheap) digital stills camera that can shoot at 300 frames per second. The footage is filmed at this speed and then slowed down to 30 fps to give a slow-mo video, 10 times slower than normal. Trey seems to think that this 10x figure is a magic number.
Ok, so slow motion is nothing clever, but when he combines it with a pan and moves the camera 10x faster than you would normally pan the result is pretty good. The video and therefore background pans at what appears to be a normal speed, but the people and other subjects in the video are all seen in slow motion. Clever stuff.
