Slow motion made in New York in 2008 with a cheap casio camera (sorry for the low quality and the jpeg artefacts!)

Hope you'll like it!

First of all a very big thanks to all of you, for all your nice comments! I'm very pleased to see that many of you loved it!

And there is also many questions about technical details.
So this is how I proceded:

The shots were done with the casio EX-F1 at 300 fps and edited at 24 fps. You can't choose the quality, so you'll get low definition and strong compression (it's a 700 euros camera...).

I was roller skating, this gave the long and smooth travellings. but the most important thing is the stabilization, I used the Steadicam Merlin for that. It's really important. The rollers were important but the steadicam is the key (with the slow motion) of the smooth touch.

For the colors, I edited it on Premiere. Transforme the .mov in single frames with Quick Time. And used Photoshop with the "automate" fonction.

Then two layers, a black and white and a color with a polaroid effect. Then 50 or 55% opacity on the top layer. And back to a .mov folder with Quik time. And then the sound in Premiere again.

But I guess that if you desaturate, contraste and add some yellow on the highlight and midtone, it would be something very close to that.

I think I didn't forget anything
Thanks again for watching it.
