Slow Motion Video Booth

If you haven’t already seen it, the guys over at Super Frog Saves Tokyo have put together an amazing and entertaining video of a Slow Motion Video Booth at their friends wedding.

How They Shot It

They used 4 LED light panels, 2 to light the subject and backdrop and 2 to light the subjects straight on at eye level. Here’s a diagram of their setup.

The camera used was a Red Epic, shot at 160 frames per second.

Here’s the video of Super Frog Saves Tokyo on how they set up their booth.

Not everyone can afford to spend 40k on a Red Epic to make a slow motion video booth. Fortunately they have a tutorial on a budget slow mo booth coming up soon.

    The challenge will be to provide live feedback to ‘talent’ without the use of a NEWTEK (or similar) livecasting instant replay setup. Although, if you can afford to shoot with a ‘red’, you can afford that as well…
    I bet we can figure out a way to stream content from a gopro 720p/120fps and play it back a slow speed to give the general feedback an audience woudl expect. The software tools are out there.
