Watch as Josh Connolly tests out the slow motion explosion he bought off Amazon Prime (ya, you heard me) and then learn how to create your very own. OK, they won't actually teach you how to blow things up, but they will entertain you while walking you through the process they used to create a slow-motion explosion effect. So, even though you may go to Film Riot to learn filmmaking techniques and how to create kick-ass visual effects, you'll go back for the sketches.
I'm not even into filmmaking, but I subscribe to Film Riot just because Ryan Connolly and his crew are always hi-freakin-larious when dropping education. If you are into filmmaking, the wealth of knowledge that can be learned from these guys is massive. Armed with wit, a Canon EOS C100, Canon EOS C300 Mark II, After Effects (for special effects) and Premiere (for putting the shots together), the crew over at Film Riot produce amazing tutorials. Just be warned that Ryan is one hell of a fast talker. But, if you keep that pause button at the ready and are willing to put in the work, you'll find duplicating their techniques surprisingly easy. Enjoy.
