Using A Go Pro Array For Bullet Time Effect
Marc Donahue from Perma Grin Films has quite a few tricks up his sleeve. Two of which are wonderfully demonstrated in the video below.
The first one is kinda new old trick where using an array of video cameras to create a bullet time effect. This one was shot entirely with GoPro Hero cameras mounted on (at least) two DIY rigs – a small rig that can be handheld (see 0:18) and a bigger rig that give a wider angle (see 0:50).
The other, more interesting thing for me was a technique Marc calls Lyric-Lapsing. It’s a mix between stop motion and time lapse on a talking head, and it is highly surreal (see the intro at 0:16 and the conclusion at 2:00).
