Knife-proof the camera… and ACTION!on Feb 10 in Blogroll by admin
ESPN’s E60 crew chose 21st Century 3D to shoot a 3D “short” about The Great Throwdini.
It was my first HI-SPEED shoot as a Stereographer. The amount of llight we needed for these hi-speed cameras was incredible, lights totally maxed out house power capacity at Hofstra University stage. We were using 2 Phantom HD Golds to capture it in 3D at 1200 frames per second.
Exploring our options for the most dramatic slo-mo, knife-in-your-face, 3D shot we experimented with mirrors and thick plexy right in front of the camera.
The results were just stunning! Take a look at the finished piece that is playing on ESPN 3D and behind the scenes video of the shoot:
