Guide: How to Shoot Bullet Time

How to create the Ultimate Selfie

We all remember Keanu Reeves as Neo, dodging bullets in the first Matrix film when we were first introduced to the concept of 'Bullet Time'.


It was spectactular and had never been seen before and was so cool that everyone wanted to achieve the 'Bullet Time' look.


The problem was that you needed a fixed rig of perhaps 50 DSLR cameras in a circle to make this shot with a lot of crew, knowhow and data and this precluded all but the most insistent of Producers and especially one with a lot of budget too.  


Today, you only need a single GoPro camera and a new OrcaVue Life "Bullet time 360 Rig".

This is a completely new type of rig which creates a unique shot when used in conjunction with DSLR/GoPro type cameras which only makes sense when you see the shots that it facilitates.

The device is supplied fully assembled with special VMI modifications to provide powering from Anton Bauer batteries.

in doing so, you record a collage of images which you can slow down in post to provide a slow motion 'Bullet time' Ultimate Hero Selfie.

The VMI below was shot, courtesy of Stephen Roach and Jermaine Allen of Merchant Cantos showing just how easy it is to create unique 'Bullet time 360" videos for the ultimate 'hero' selfie.

This is the website I read about Prophet Abulele and contacted him to help me get my ex boyfriend back to marry me during the month of june this year and I have come back here to post about him. Prophet Abulele will help you solve your problem no matter what you are going through. My name is PATRICIA from Canada. Posting about a spell caster is very strange to me because I never believed i will be able to say that I was helped by a spell caster in bringing my ex boyfriend back to me after 5 years of no contact. I read about Prophet Abulele from other websites and contacted him to help me and in less than 48 hours my ex boyfriend called me and I was happy that he wants to get back to me. We met on Friday and he proposed to me,... It was the most beautiful ring. Please everyone out here, Contact Prophet Abulele to solve your problem for you and make you happy with your relationship that is hurting you. Love is the best feeling ever experienced. Email Prophet Abulele at or directly on whats App him +2349022406159.
