I was gaffer for this above video, and it’s something I totally geeked out on. We shot the vibration of metal at 1,000 frames per second using the Phantom camera. The footage looked so great that I think half our time was spent watching replay.
One thing about shooting 1,000 frames per second is that you’re going to need a lot of light. So for this project we used 3x 2k Mole Fresnels and a 5k Arri Fresnel. That’s some serious light, especially considering most of these were CUs. But even then we still had to get the lights just off camera to get the look we wanted.
Anyway, enjoy the video, and pass it on if you like!
