models

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.

Being a photographer looks tough:

You’d have to get pretty used to being muzzle swept, and be able to tolerate general stupidity with guns though by the looks of it.

The calendar is put out buy UK based Edgar Brothers.  It is around $30 shipped to the U.S., 50% of the net proceeds go to the UK based “Help For Heroes” foundation. Looks like Edgar Brothers has some pretty serious equipment at their disposal.
