Video Virtuosity ——

If you haven’t heard by now slo-mo video booths have become a hugely popular add-on service at weddings. Looking at the below video (that went viral last year) it’s no surprise why.

The video above was filmed using a 9ft white Seamless backdrop, a Red Epic camera, 4 LED light panels and a ton of props and glitter. Word to the wise regarding glitter, if you’re going to throw it around make sure to use a tarp and bring along a vacuum to try and clean it up, the smaller the glitter the harder clean-up will be.

Setting one of these up isn’t as hard as it looks, and it doesn’t need to be expensive either. The below tutorial goes over how to do this with a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition but there’s a wide variety of cameras with this feature, and if you don’t own one you could always rent a camera with super slow-motion capability like the Sony NEX-FS700UK.
