Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jun 24, 2019
  • It's June! Time for an annual Giant Balloon June video. This time Gav challenges Dan to live in a balloon for a bit while a water proof lens is shoved inside. Balloon pops, 1000fps, job done.
    To avoid being known as "the plum who drowned/suffocated inside a balloon", please don't try this at home unless you have a mate who can get you out.

    A lot of comments giving us mad love for being “back in the back yard” as opposed to the TVclip original shows with higher production value. I think we’ll always be back yard boys at heart. We prefer shooting on our own but it is useful having a crew sometimes. For example, Dan couldn’t wear a mic for most of this video and we had no one to hold a boom. But it would have been useful. Instead I had to boost audio from the camera mic or my mic which means the background noise is constantly going up when he speaks which I don’t really like doing. There is certainly a middle ground in terms of production value that we should try and achieve. What is it that you dislike the most about the big TVclip original shows? I’d be curious to know. They are pretty useful for us to do occasionally because it gives us the funds to get better equipment for our regular videos. Let me know your thoughts. - Gav
    EDIT - seems like people feel that the YTOs are more scripted even though none of the episodes have ever had a script. Maybe we need to do a better job and making it feel less scripted by being more comfortable?

      So part of the issue with the "YTO" is you guys would do slow-mo at 25,000 frames, just because and who cares if it doesnt capture any difference, its whats on our minds.. 1000 fps is just not interesting and has been done forever on other shows. You guys are the Super Slo Mo guys! Will watch YTOs and Back yard stuff. Either is awesome!

      It's obviously great that you're getting bigger and better opportunities, like, what's the point if it doesn't grow and improve? I think, for me at least, the fear is that you'll lose the casual, haphazard "two guys in a back garden" feel that makes the videos so friendly and likeable, but hearing you say you think that'll always be a part of your brand is reassuring. Like I said, change and improvement is always a plus, as long as the core is still there, and considering you two are the core (not the garden), I don't think you've got too much to worry about

    Fill the giant water balloon up on an elevated surface, then drop it. Film the balloon landing (and breaking) on the ground/grass.
    There are many slow motion videos of water balloons breaking when they hit a surface, but no giant water balloon videos doing the same thing.

    a snorkel must not contain more air than your lungs. If it does you will end up breathing the same air and depleting the oxygen and increasing the carbon dioxide. That snorkel would have killed you if you had stayed long enough

    Guys it is just an idea, what you think to get along with Tony Hawk and film some of skateboard tricks in high fps? Basic ones for kids to wrap their minds around how to learn those tricks. Like Ollie, KickFlip and so on... What you think?

    If you take a slow-mo video then record it again through another slow motion camera, see how slow it will get or if the frames just separate and it ruins the video?

      Depending on the screen, you'd probable just see the refresh rate constantly. Like those lines on old monitors when you'd see them on camera.
