How to Create Interesting Water Illusions Using a Camera and Sound

On a recent episode of Shanks FX, directed by Joey Shanks and produced by PBS Digital Studios, Joey demonstrates how to create interesting water illusions using a camera and sound.

Water illusions can happen when you film fast movement with the right type of camera. To the naked eye this looks like something of a blur. But with a fast enough shutter speed a camera can make objects appear like they are frozen in time. These illusions happen when an image moves too fast for a camera to detect. This is known as temporal aliasing / the wagon-wheel effect.
