Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

Can Dan slice an arrow in half mid air and deflect it away from the target? Can Gav shoot the arrow at Dan without accidentally impaling him? Will they film it in Slow Mo? Definitely yes on that last question. Broken Monitor 2nd channel video -

Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys




  • For those confused - the regular camera is filming at 50fps and edited in a 50fps timeline. The phantom is filming at 1000fps placed in the timeline at a playback speed of 25fps so each frame is doubled in the 50fps timeline. This means that all normal footage is much smoother looking and all the phantom footage is still played as slow as possible at 25fps. Why 50 instead of 60? 25 doesn’t fit into 60 very easily. Why 25 instead of 30? It means our phantom footage doesn’t get sped up. -Gav

  • You know that is pretty cool I doubt I'd ever be able to even hit the arrow but if you're taking requests for your next video tribe bullets okay when I say that don't actually try and chop the bulletin have just you know set it up where you're shooting the gun at the sword just to clarify I don't want anyone getting actually hurt
