This is the ending scene from our dance film called SEE | OBEY.
There is short making of video in here: vimeo.com/182078030
And here: vimeo.com/182089773
The scene was filmed last year in Finland and we had about 100 volunteers. To make the timing work we placed professional dancer to key places, since we knew that they can time those actions precisely.
The high speed footage was filmed in 1000fps with Phantom Flex4k and it was shot from driving car. The speed was about 75 km/h. The take has been used as it was shot and nothing is added in post, only some framing and grading is done.
We did six takes all together and the fifth one we ended up using.
Here is also link to the final version of this scene: vimeo.com/154425775
There is not much difference. Some small changes in grading and framing.
