Live Bullet Time Effect With 15 GoPros: New Visual Possibilities For Indie Filmmakers
DIY filmmaker Marc Donahue, who was half of the tandem behind the Youtube hit -and impressive stop motion- Dream Music, has been back this month with new videos sharing the results of his latest experiment: obtaining a live bullet time effect out of 15 GoPros.
Donahue had previously shared a music video filmed using this tool and technic but that I felt was hard to watch in its entirety.
The video below gives a better glimpse at the GoPros array’s potential and the aesthetic that comes out of this technique. Getting 15 GoPros for an indie shoot comes with a price, and the technique still needs to be perfected, but this is yet another step closer to filmmaking democratization.
At the end of the video, Donahue explains how he came to build different rigs to try the bullet time effect with Go Pros camera. You can also learn a lot from the comments below the video as he answers to questions and goes into more technicalities.[Thanks to Mashable via @DigitalDuckInc]
