Director Zack Snyder has utilized "Slow Motion" to great effect in his films. I'll be analyzing this further in a future video, but this supercut is a showcase of various slow motion shots in Snyder's filmography.
Includes the following films: 300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch, and Legend of the Guardians (plus one shot from Man of Steel).
What is Slow Motion?: "Movements on the screen appearing slower than they would in actual life... A filmmaker achieves slow motion by running film through his camera at a speed faster than the standard 24 frames per second; subsequent projection at 24 frames per second slows down the action." (psu.edu/)
One of the interesting things I learned editing this is when you place a lot of slow motion shots one after another, it actually diminishes the effect somewhat. Snyder's use of slow-mo as it originally appears in his films works so well because it contrasts with the normal-speed shots it's placed against. This will be explored in-depth shortly.
In this week's episode, Sin City's Visual Effects Supervisor - and our new Creative Director - Stu Maschwitz, shows you how to get the Summer Blockbuster look seen in Transformers 2, Terminator: Salvation, and The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3.
