Fire breathing in bullet time looks so completely bad ass

It’s a universal rule that even after all these years, everything looks cooler in bullet time. Time stops! Perspectives get reversed! And when this dude is breathing fire in bullet time, it looks like a maniacal orange fiery beast is being excised from the guy’s body. It’s a really bad ass look.


Mitch Martinez, who made the video, breaks down the setup:

48 DSLR camera array + RED Epic (120fps) and GH4 (96fps). No CGI Animation or VFX.

All imagery in this video was created in-camera.

Not sure I’d call that bullet time so much as freeze time. AFAIK bullet time implies time still flows, albeit slowly (if you recall the scene in The Matrix, Neo dodges bullets that move while the camera is moving). So each frame should have been taken at a different time, not the same time for the bullet time effect.
