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

  • In theory, no harder than hitting a baseball, possibly even easier since the ball needs to be hit "point on" by a narrow baseball bat, while the arrow can be cut in any place along it's length by the sword in any place along it's length. Much larger margin for error. Good footage, but as demonstrated, the feat of striking an arrow with a sword is not difficult.

  • Idea: Film in slomo the swarm of tiny gnat flies that you find outdoors. They appears to be hundreds of them flying in one small random area. Im referring to the ones you find out in your back yard or out in fields. Another Idea: Swarm of birds, and the assortment of flying bugs in swarms. Another idea: The myth of flying Rods. Yes, its actually the camera shutter making it appear as such, but the areas that these "rods" have been recorded, you could "discover" what the camera is actually seeing with proper slowmo.

  • By shooting that same arrow in a shorter length, you effectively increased the arrow spine, making it stiffer. If you have any shots from above or behind, you can probably see the tail end whipping further to the right than the normal length arrows. This would have been what made the arrow go further to the left than the point of impact that you got used to. You guys should really consider doing some experiments on the Archer’s Paradox. It would be pretty brilliant with your equipment. Sorry about the small HD, but I think it’s loss was worth this amazing video. Brilliant job!
