Re: Red Epic slow Motion Booth

Nice concept but I got bored a couple of minutes in. I guess the B+G would like it though...

Re: Red Epic slow Motion Booth

Same here, I started skipping through the footage after a few seconds, I actually would have preferred to have it in realtime but to hear the actual sound recorded, with slowmotion you have to add music. Now everything they do is in function of the slowmotion capability of the camera, there is no own initiative to say or do something funny, they just get attributes that once used look cool in slowmo or they get asked to do things that look cool in slowmo as well, I didn't find it funny.

Re: Red Epic slow Motion Booth

Apparently, this one has gone viral. Wonder if the production company will get any repercussions from the (presumably) non-licensed music. And speaking of Blurred Lines, I really wonder how complimentary it is to call the bride "the hottest bitch in this place". (Do any women find the song sexist, or is everyone distracted by the beat?)

I personally liked this video a lot. Main fascination for me was people's faces -- expressions of pure excitement or joy (though I think the bride was a little tense). You just don't see these sorts of moments as clearly outside slow motion.

I'm sure that, not too many years from now, slow motion will be a lot more used in wedding videos -- assuming that they're well-lit weddings, or that the videographer is prepared to blast the dance floor with an HMI.

Not too sure, though, that slow motion video booths will be all that popular -- after all, just as everyone's sick of seeing balloons pop in slow motion, how much confetti and silly string will it take before video booths become too samey?

This could be true, but it seems that photo booths are very popular and those are essentially the same thing every time.

Anything is going to be more fun to watch when it is people you know. This could be very popular because you get to see uncle bob doing something ridiculous in slow motion.
