After our discussion about the high speed cameras, I found this commercial and I was pretty much rendered speechless. This is AMAZING! Don’t get me wrong, this took a lot of work, a huge crew, a composer to create the perfect sound design, but I thought it was a killer idea of some creative things we could do (or at least try) with the FS 700 camera at our disposal.
Created as a commercial for Schwartz Flavour Shots, this slow-motion video dubbed “The Sound of Taste” is an amazing combination of cinematography and pyrotechnics that has been combined to create what filmmaker Chris Cairns calls “an audiovisual feast.” Couldn’t have said it better myself! The filmmakers said in this article that they were trying to emulate what the experience of tasting different flavors would physically look like. I also found that the behind-the-scenes video of the production was really interesting and helped me wrap my head around how they were able to pull this off. Seems like they did a lot of work to get it just right, but it definitely paid off! This is one of the most creative commercials I have seen in a long time!
Also another amazing slow-motion video I found. This type of video seems to be a little more in our ability to create….

After seeing how cool the FS-700 is concerning the slow motion options, this music video demonstrates some scenes in which slow motion is appropriately used for creative effect. There are a variety of shots in which paper cranes are flying, whether off a ledge, in the little boy’s hand or in the wind, and I imagine they were all different speeds when they were shot. This music video showcases how in post, we can slow down the rhythm of all the shots to match what we’re making.
I also worry about location a lot, whether the logistics of permission or of something not being “beautiful” enough of a location to shoot, but this video also shows how artistically interesting an abandoned building filled with piles of forgotten waste can actually be. There are so many close-up detail shots that bring you in to the intimacy of exploring the space, and the lighting is very well done. All in all I think this piece shows that when done right, slow motion can really be a magical effect.
