Slow Motion Poi

Client(s): None

Role: Director, Camera, Editor

Alexa, Seamus, and JT perform poi to the song India Sleeping by Mars. I really didn’t have a plan other than “Show up to a fire spinning event and film it at high speed.” But I must say I’m rather pleased with the result. At 120fps, everything is lost in darkness save for what is directly lit by the flame, which ends up making the performers ephemeral, just getting glimpses of them as the flame passes by.
