Next Level Pictures presents “8 Hours in Brooklyn” featuring beautiful slow motion video shot with a Phantom Flex high speed camera in and around Brooklyn. Cinematographer Jonathan Bregel describes his concept for the video:
Anyway, the idea behind this video was to document whatever sort of culture we could find within an 8 hour span with literally no pre-production. I have honestly seen too many slow-motion explosions, face slaps, and popping water baloons, that I thought capturing real culture, and real emotion would be a cool change of pace. My goal was to successfully pull of a few of these shots with a small crew in order to be able to pitch the Phantom Flex for a lot of the documentary work we shoot/produce. A big misconception is that you need a massive crew and massive lights in order to use this camera…false. However, you do need to know how to use natural daylight to your advantage along with having a kick-ass core crew to support you.
