Making of VS - Sony NEX FS700

VS Behind The Scenes When we got the chance to be the first team in the world to shoot with the Sony NEX FS700, James and I put our heads together and wanted to make something that demonstrated the 200fps but also allowed us to light and create something unusual.

So as a drummer I thought it'd be cool to get an amazing musician to play fast and we shoot it on slow mo. (I'm really not that good so we got a proper drummer!)

James's Wife Sara is a Brazilian Samba dancer so we had a great match for a head to head, Rock Drummer picked against Samba Dancer.  The forces of rock vs the forces of Brazil.

The original idea was to play the drummer off with a dancer in a dual, but once we saw what the 200fps looked like, it made more sense to keep it all slow mo and the resulting film is what came out of it.

It will shoot up to 240 fps at 1920x1080, 480 fps at 1920 x 432 skipped readout interpolated to 1920 x 1080, and 960 fps with reduced resolution interpolated to 1920 x 1080.

The 200fps is pretty amazing.

Anyway here's the Behind The Scenes film.
