It took us about 5 minutes to bring everyone up to speed, place people around the room, and figure out a rough path. The original shot is a little over two minutes long. It’s obviously really hard to get 40 people to hold still for that long, so a lot of the sped up sections hide some of the movement. The other sped up and slowed down parts were just to emphasize it’s epic awesomeness.
I really like the concept. I assumed they did it the way they said they did before I read the description. The only other way I know to get this effect is to actually have a large number of still cameras fire simultaneously and then you can stitch the pictures together like a video, but that way is obviously more expensive and way more time consuming.
Yea the trigger discipline is non existent on some of the models, but its art/photography so it’s to be expected.
A Steadicam is one of those things I want to get as soon as I get a new video camera.
