Faking Bullet-Time: The Centriphone / CentriGopro Technique Explained
Earlier this year, I saw an amazing video by pro skier Nicolas Vuigner who attached his iphone to some strings and started spinning it as he skied! It was epic. I've wanted to try this out myself and finally put it to the test.
Watch Nicolas' video HERE:
Then Matt and Kim did a music video for their song Let's Run Away that was shot completely in this fashion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KA1e...
In fact, I took a lot of my inspiration for this technique from the very first clip of their film. It showed what looked like a coat hanger and a gopro. I knew I had to try it to share with you all.
Unfortunately I didn't find the other tutorials that do exist showing the technique until just now. There are a few good ones now that I've retroactively watched a few, but honestly, I think this technique works better than the original rig by Nicolas. This one almost gets the strings out of the picture as you're spinning it. The only thing I'd change is to attach a handle to my rope. It really hurts your fingers after an hour of spinning it. Good luck with this technique!
