Create the sensation
that the viewer
is moving around the scene


Many viewers are interested in how our video production partner, Super Frog Saves Tokyo went about creating the slow motion, staccato time effect in our latest video “Odds and Ends“. The technique is known as the “bullet time effect” and it involves stitching images from multiple cameras together to create the sensation that the viewer is moving around the scene, rather than the other way around. Bullet time was made famous by The Matrix in 1999 (queue the reel of Trinity suspended in the air as we circle around her incredible fight scene to escape arrest).

In “Odds and Ends”, SFST pulled off an impressive demonstration of bullet time. The good news? With 36 cameras (or in this case, iPhones) you can do it at home! Check out SFST’s “Behind the Scenes” to see how they did it.
