If there’s one thing the Slow Mo Guys know, it’s… well, slow mo. The clue’s kind of in the name. They produce some of the best slow-motion video in the world because it’s what they specialise in. They live it and breath it. In this video, half of the Slow Mo Guys, specifically Gavin Free, walks us through his editing process and his sound design workflow.
While it might be obvious to some, most of the sounds in their videos aren’t actually what the camera is recording (because it’s usually not even recording audio). Sometimes it is, but certainly not slowed down as much as the video is. Often, though, it’s usually a collection of random other sound effects that just feel right for the mood Gavin wants.
