Registration has started at Edgerton Center from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for the yearly high speed imaging course geared at the principles of shooting and preparing slow motion setups. The course goes deep into the science and art of slow motion video and has access to some of the most capable high speed gear so that students can use and experiment with first hand experience.
Previous courses have been a great success and the imagery coming out of these classes is pretty jaw dropping. If you can attend the course in June this year it could be just what you were waiting for to jump into the slow motion realm. Access to this gear is few and far between for even experienced personnel and videographers; plus learning from experts in the field can come in very handy to get better knowledge about the process.
If you thought you couldn’t get sicker about water balloons bouncing and stretching in slow motion think again! This time 1500 small water balloons are bounced on a trampoline with kids jumping to create some mesmerizing footage with the help of a Phantom Camera rental from aimed reasearch.
Mark Rober the creator of the video is a former NASA Engineer who worked on the curiosity rover and overall experimental scientist that does a lot of cool things in his life and shares them on his Twitter feed here! This time his nephews and himself enjoy bouncing with diverse water balloons while filming in super slow motion for an enjoyable effect.
The MIT Edgerton Center is offering a new 4 day in depth course in high speed imaging at their Cambridge, MA Campus. The Edgerton center is as you guessed it the DOC Edgerton building named after the famous high speed imaging researcher and inventor. It is also the main inspiration for the edgertronic high speed camera. It could be a great way to get exposed to the latest gear from the top manufacturers of high speed cameras and learn techniques, lighting for hi speed and problem solving.
