Shooting and Shooting


Whenever the opportunity arises to fire a rather large gun at watermelons and 2-liter bottles of soda, you do not hesitate. You take the job right away.

We recently shot a ballistics test video for our client, UPI Manufacturing, featuring a high-powered weapon and their ballistics material. To show the results if you were not using their product, we used watermelons and soda bottles. An explosive demonstration to say the least.

Of course we had to bring our RED ONE along to capture it in beautiful 120 frames per second. This gave us the chance to show these marvelous explosions in slow motion. We compiled the footage and delivered to UPI for use in a trade show environment.

From the beginning of the project we could feel that this video could be more “movie trailer”-like with suspenseful music and an aggressive color grade. It fit perfectly for the shots we captured that day and turned out great.

Enough talk, I’ll let the video speak for itself.
