Slow motion is a technique in filmmaking whereby time appears to be slowed down. Typically this is achieved when each film frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving slower. The technical term for slow motion is overcranking, referring to the concept of cranking a handcranked camera faster than normal
Slow motion is ubiquitous in modern filmmaking. It is used by diverse directors to achieve diverse effects. Some classic subjects of slow motion include:
* Athletic activities of all kinds, to demonstrate skill and style.
* To recapture a key moment in an athletic game, typically shown as a replay.
* Natural phenomena, such as a drop of water hitting a glass.
