RE-Watch of High Speed / Slow Motion Fashion Shoot with Superfad on Chase Jarvis LIVE

3 weeks ago, I put the $150,000 Phantom Flex camera through its paces during an experimental fashion shoot with my good friend, director Will Hyde from Superfad. We had an absolute blast. We also had superhot female talent, an epic wardrobe, do-it-yourself solutions mixed with the highest end pro gear, and more than 50,000 watts of light. While the shoot went on for 6 hours, this here re-watch has been trimmed to include all the highlights for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy. Share if you dig it.

[The finished edit of our work is coming soon as well, stay tuned.]

    Fascinating. I had no idea about the AC / DC light source effects on high frame-rate cameras. I’ve got a lot of learning to do.

    Thanks so much for re-posting :D

    Awesome shoot cj, a great insight to what planing a considerations went into a shoot that broke new barriers.

    Brilliant! Would love to see more videos like this in future. :)

    Hey Chase,

    Thanks for posting that, it is very inspiring. Cannot wait to see the finished product.

    Keep up the amazing work on CJlive, I’m a religious follower!

    Thanx Jarvis for this nice BTS.

    For those not accustomed to such productions I think the most interesting to watch should be everything that goes on BTS and the amount of people required for this kind of work. And that’s on production day alone, much more happens during pre-production, which can take even weeks.

    BTW Jarvis, I think you touched the model too much, which is quite unprofessional. Only the MUA and Stylist are allowed that. You can give her a big hug at the wrap-up though.

    Nice work. Great concept.

      thank henry. good point about the gear. but i’ve never once it 15 years of doing this been criticized by connecting with the models in the way i do. so – fair of you to voice your opinion – but the feedback i’ve had over thousands of interactions runs contrary to your point here.

      • Henry_ March 22, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

        Well, I was half joking, but this is a VERY serius matter often overlooked, specially by younger pals entering the biz. I have to say I almost cringed when you touched her belly when she was dressing the “pearl dress”. As for my experience, this ‘might’ have got you into trouble later if the model raised any complaints to her agency, specially if you did that more through the shoot, even unintentionally. Even touching a model just to show her how to move or act is a no-no. Despite good karmas and relaxed atmospheres, work is work and you have to remain professional, the producer, AD or client could get the wrong impression. After work, you can take the models and the entire team to the disco and party all night no problemo.
        Anyway, great work and thank you very much, you’ve inspired me and i’ll soon do some cool and extravagant fashion-related stuff on my dime (for portfolio/marketing).

          According to whom, Henry? You must not work in the creative industry. Human interactions are NOT unprofessional, it’s part of the job. Chase was not being a creep, Chase was directing. Dancers, actors, models know they would be touched, that’s perfectly normal, it’s perfectly professional. It’s obvious that Chase was not doing it for sexual pleasure but for work. Since I have been on both side of the camera, it is perfectly normal.

          If you don’t know anything, it’s better if you don’t say anything and mislead other people with your inaccurate info, probably based on some amateur interactions.

    Hey Chase. This is coming at you from Liverpool, UK….My good friend, John Scotland put me onto your live shows and blog. This is great stuff. I’d heard of phantom cameras but never studied one in action. Whata beast. I particularly loved the symbiosis of a hundred grand camera with a 50 dollar garage built light…awesome. I have scratch built lights before using very humble materials and gotten great results from them.

    Just wondering if you could get a schematic for the light featured and share it if the very talented chap who built it is willing to share it with the world. It would be great to know how the batteries are connected and how to build in the safety fuses too. I would love to make one of these!

  10. Alan Eddy March 22, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    Really loved the shots of the furry jacket at the end…some nice work there…and you two made a good camera/light combo!

    Hey Chase, the next time you need to break tungsten bulbs just use water. A single drop of cold water on a hot bulb will cause failure (a fact I learned at a tender age). Plus, I think a water droplet entering the frame at 1000+ frames per second would look awesome.

    Thanks Brilliant! Would love to see more videos like this in future

    Very cool! Great post.

    But why did you say “Share if you dig it.”? Sorry, but that’s a real Captain Obvious moment on your part. I mean, as an audience we know the internet well enough to make it here, we probably know how to send our friends too if its cool enough. You’re the hottest stuff in photog right now and you do awesome work. Let it speak for itself without pimping shares. Just IMHO. Again, great work.

    Looking like Ingemar Bergman in that polo, Chase ;-)

    Hey Chase, I’ve been following your stuff for some time and have to say videos like this are amazing and incredibly insightful. Many of us will never get the opportunity to work the way you do but to get a taster of how the pros work is fascinating, not only to understand how much goes into such work but also to realise that to get some of the best shots or footage it’s necessary to go beyond the initial thought process.

  17. Christian May 15, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    I’ll be watching it later this week again as I can’t get enough of high speed filming. I prefer these kind of videos and loved every single minute of it. Sorry second. Awesome production and as some others i can’t wait to see the final product thinking of how it was made.

    Super duper!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas?
