The Slow Mo Guys - Giant 6ft Water Balloon
Here we see The slowmo guys attempting and finally succeding bursting a six foot water balloon in slow mo.Typically this style is achieved when each film frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving more slowly. The technical term for slow motion isovercranking which refers to the concept of cranking a handcranked camera at a faster rate than normal (i.e. faster than 24 frames per second). Slow motion can also be achieved by playing normally recorded footage at a slower speed.
