Makin' Movies

This week, I've been sitting in on my pal Rosa's video elective, and it has been awesome!
On Tuesday, we were working with High Speed Photography: super slow-mo. The camera we used was a £40k MotionProX3, which was initially evented for use at NASA; it was a weird little box that looked a bit like an oversized GoPro. However, we used it in order to consider the similarities and differences between Photography and Cinematography, seeing as the footage allows for that perfect frame/moment to be extracted from the clip. At a max of 64,000 frames per second, there are an awful lot to choose from.
