By now most of you have probably watched the Matrix movies and seen how the bullet time effects were created, and if not where have you been? In a nutshell, the effect was used in the films too slow down or freeze a moment while adding a rotation around the subject using multiple cameras to capture that moment. Why did I bring that up?
Daniel DeArco shoots a lot of action and he set out to try to create a similar effect using only one camera as close as possible. With newer cameras, slow-motion capturing is becoming more prevalent and better. Using a camera with the ability to capture high frame rates, Daniel needed some time to move the camera quickly to imitate the bullet time effect. So he built his own prototype and he was able to produce some stellar results. Check out the Outtakes video below for more on the slider and the behind the scenes stuff. It would be interesting to see this on a dolly track or circular slider to get more motion around the subject. Now let's see if he makes a video on how we can make our own, or will he proceed this to be sold on the market?
