Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Aug 20, 2019
  • Can Dan slice an arrow in half mid air and deflect it away from the target? Can Gav shoot the arrow at Dan without accidentally impaling him? Will they film it in Slow Mo? Definitely yes on that last question. Broken Monitor 2nd channel video -

    For those confused - the regular camera is filming at 50fps and edited in a 50fps timeline. The phantom is filming at 1000fps placed in the timeline at a playback speed of 25fps so each frame is doubled in the 50fps timeline. This means that all normal footage is much smoother looking and all the phantom footage is still played as slow as possible at 25fps. Why 50 instead of 60? 25 doesn’t fit into 60 very easily. Why 25 instead of 30? It means our phantom footage doesn’t get sped up. -Gav

    I am actually quite confused because at 5:55 Gav is behind the camera, and says he missed the camera by inches. But the following shot at 6:09 the camera shows Gav's back and there is no camera between Gav and Dan. Have you boys tricked us and edited in a different shot after you talked about missing the camera by inches? Because I very much wanted to see the arrow fly past the camera.

    the feathers give the arrow such stability, that even after a hit it still continues to travel fairly well.
