Collapsing Towers Slomo Shoot
Filming in the studio at KU with Phantom camera and a collection of building blocks I have cut from old roof beams. The idea was to build structures and catch them collapsing or falling. We soon found the most successful way to work was to hit the table from beneath to make the objects leap in the air and then collapse. Worked with undergraduates and with a friends some who is 16 and they all seemed to find this really engaging.
Also shot on the Phantom and Bolex at the same time (100fps compared to 64fps) to compare results.
