This is a short longboard film I recently produced. The idea behind it was to marry some slow motion longboard sliding to a 'glitch' track and mash it all up to the beat. I wanted the images and audio to become one. Also wanted to try some super slow shots and see how far I could push optical flow.

This audiovisual explores longboarding as a sport, from the slow motion perspective.
Taking time remapping as leitmotiv, we search the way of making contrast between the movement and the tricks of these riders.
Este audiovisual explora al longboarding como deporte, desde el recurso del slow motion.
Tomando el remapeo de tiempo como leitmotiv, buscamos el contraste entre el desplazamiento y los "tricks" de los corredores.
A special thanks to the girls from Pearl London and Pure Storm.

We had the use of Sophia for a few moments... so we thought we would give a quick test to our equipment.
In this test we were using a Vision Research Phantom HD slow motion camera shooting to a 120 gig ram stack at 1000frames per second, the lens was a 35mm Carl Zeiss Planar T* wide open. Please forgive the slight loss of focus at 1.35 the depth of field was less than 5cm, sophia (skipping in 15cm high heels) seems to have missed her mark very slightly and at the same time our focus puller seems to have been briefly distracted somehow?
If you are inspired by this or any or our videos and would like to get some slow motion photography - please get in contact we are a lot of fun to work with. At photography-factory are are very experienced in slow motion, quite reasonable, and make our livings from creative photography. Plus we need money to pay for more tests...
Cinematic poem brings an ode to dancers and what they are able to do with their body, by showing what our eyes normally can't see in real time.
Shot on a Phantom high-speed camera, filming over a 1000 frames a second to create ultra slow motion.
This fascinated me and I hope it will fascinate you...
