Creative Video Challenge at PACTV

July's Video Challenge

Slow motion video can be inspiring to see, and even more fun to capture. In this video challenge, you don’t need to use the slow-motion setting. You will record a regular-speed video while your subject PRETENDS to move in slow motion.

To accentuate the facts that your subject is not shot in slow motion (just moving really, really slowly) think about adding elements around your fake slow motion subject that aren’t faking it. You can even add some dialogue and have your actors talk in their best deep and slow voices.

Use whatever equipment or cameras you want but just make sure you shoot at normal speed and that your final video is exported at normal speed.  No post-production trickery for this video please!

Length 90 seconds
Cost Free
