Insane Footage at 100mph & 1000fps [via The Creators Project]


I wish I had a better plan, but I’m trying to make a film about the world right now through my eyes. I’m trying to use some of this technology we have right now, like our cinema truck and our snowmobile systems and our helicopter systems, to tell the story of the world today in a different way. -Curt Morgan

What do you get when you get when you combine some military spec gyro stabilization with a CineFlex and Phantom HD camera, a filmmaker turned ‘tech geek’, some great athletes or perhaps even a mountain goat or two? You get some damn sweet footage. Learn more about Curt Morgan and Brain Farm in this vid above, and check out more great stories on fascinating creative minds at The Creator’s Project.

Anybody got a credit card they’re hip to me hammering with about $350,000?

[Btw: Phantom HD was fun for me to use in this here music video.]

    Incredible. Reminds me of The Collective crew and their method for filming Roam, 100 foot zip-lines through the trees following mountain bike trails, although, this is another level. Props.
    Stoked.

    Great video! So interesting, I loved it. All of these new advancements just blow me away everytime

  21. Brence June 7, 2010 at 8:30 pm #

    It appears that just about anything filmed at 1000fps and slowed down looks AWESOME!

    Canon should get their R&D team onto this as the killer new feature for the 5D mkIII…

      Ha ha – true.
