EPIC Matrix effect w/ a ceiling fan & 1 GoPro (ghetto bullet time)

Mark Rober

    A simple trick to get awesome Matrix-like "Bullet Time" footage for waaaaay less money than most people spend on it with huge camera arrays.
    I shot all off this footage with a GoPro HD Hero 3 at 240 fps. NO TWIXTOR!!!... but I did you use After Effects smooth motion thing in parts which is pretty much the same thing... it just seems like writing NO TWIXTOR is like a badge of honor for slow mo videos for some reason... so I wanted to put it in there.

    I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

      Boo! More talk about laminar flow!

    4. John Huston

      You should team up with SmarterEveryDay and do this with a slow mo camera

    5. hannah nma

      7 years later and i’m watching this!!!

    6. akram belajouza

      This is not correct. In the matrix the photos were taken simultaneouly which leads to seeing the object "frozen in time" with a rotational movement. In this video, objects are rotating which doesn't lead to the same effect at all

    7. Pradyumna Chendke

      That madee me feel dizzy

    8. Chknugget Mutant

      Some part made it look like your wrist was turning 360 degrees and I cringed because all I could think about was how painful that would be when I reality it was the camera angle. This is a really cool video. I think I might try making this sometime

    9. Javier Oropeza

      Anyone here in 2020 just because why not?

    10. Lorella de Pisis

      Looks too smooth, too static, dull and unspectacular. Thumbs down

      This is cool but you should make the wooden platform thing bigger

      Sorry but that's the opposite of what the Matrix effect is.

    18. Romeolz gaming

      How did you make the middle stationary? Is there a hole in the spinning part?

      Matrix wants to know your location

    34. Laughed A

      What’s matrix?

    35. Babayega

      Something doesn't look right. If you center object is stationary and the outer area is sinking asking with the camera, then why are the candies and sprinkles and other stuff being put into the center object flying around as if centrifugal force is pushing them it in an directions? That would implicate that the center object is also spinning but perhaps just at a different speed than the outside perimeter is spinning. But u see do many people commenting that that's not the case and even mark in the video said that the center is stationary and only the outside spins. Any explanations as to why the sprinkles and candy in the center are spinning when in reality they are just being dropped straight down by his hands into a non moving object?

      What song did you use for this

    37. Smoothy

      This vid made me feel sick

    38. dumb lazy

      Hey it would look cool if you kept an ipad as the back ground with a 360 vedio playing on it

    47. Tarco badge

      Couldn't the matrix just use a giant swivle camera just like mark did instead of using 100 diffrent cameras.

    48. DsYkX Plays games

      I just watched this video to see an egg crack. ARE YOU SERIOUS? OVERALL PRETTY GOOD CHANNEL!

    49. Aaron Abraham

      The music was from music maker jam wasn't it?

    50. Kaleb Bruwer

      Having marks on the background,for example splashes, kind of ruins the effect. You should've made it a greenscreen and depending on how far you wanna go, maybe even add a background with matching spin. Just a suggestion, though.

    51. Bagas Adhikaputera

      nice music brah

    52. Memes n Shet

      It looks more like you were spinning your hand + slo mo

    53. chris p

      Mark, you are a genius!

    54. Bob Weaver

      +Mark Rober can I write to you one time and give you my opinion of what you did wrong here to make it accurately look like the matrix effect? Just a couple of small things to finish the effect is all it would take. JD

    55. DevGoku GT

      Whats music name is i lova that🤩🤤😭

    56. Xylander

      really cool

    57. TheDano1947

      Interesting but not quite "bullet time". Thanks for sharing.

    62. Will Adams

      dude, his hair!

    63. praneta mahawar

      I think of creating the same effect using a DJI Inspire 2 ( A high quality footage drone ) , just using the spotlight pro mode to circle around an object, in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions to create the effect

      1. praneta mahawar

        you wont even have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars but will have to spend 7000 dollars

    70. KeyLimeClimb

      I am planning on using this tip to make an intro for my new channel. But I am running into some issues. With everything mounted to the platform, the fan is very unbalanced. As it rotates, the entire rig shakes. What could I do to minimize that and how did he get it to be so smooth?

    71. Jarrett Williams

      just put the gopro on the fan blade

    75. The CrabNipple Army

      Is you spin it backwards really really fast like the speed of sound will the footage be backwards?????

    79. Bartol Hrg

      try this: take 2 little figures e.g. of some hero/villan (batman-superman, yoker-batmen...) or just 2 (different painted) halves of cylinder (or cylinder with some other shepe , cut them half, take left side of one and right of other and connect them with to 2-sided realy thin miror between. You shold have white background all around object.

      1. Bartol Hrg

        +Bartol Hrg Make sure put it in the middle

    80. Dor VE yehuda

      wow omg

    81. Steve Daake

      That's awesome! I think you could mount a small projector beside the the camera. And project an image or video on the back ground screen. That might make some cool effects also.

    82. noooreally

      Make the platform in the middle stationary and let the camera rotate

    83. Jacker Deluxe

      Reverse physics are the wierdest xD

    84. __

      try without the fake background, just the real one

      1. __

        Jhon Bob

      2. Luxaly

        +Spi Rale yes this would give the point that its spinning arround and with a highspeed cam u have the effect of matrix if the cam spins enough and has super high frames per second u even could suround a bullet mid air

      What the song called used when cracking the egg

        +Cameron Walker not sure which track but by the xx.

    86. photographymatt

      you say "ghetto" but thats really clever and not massively different from how it is done with much more £££. Im way more impressed with solutions that cost a fraction of what others do :-)

    88. Metehan Keskin

      Well, centriphone is a lot more easier

    89. Enola Gaillard

      Hey, It's really awjsome habitual peace What do you think, guys..0 !!

    92. James Parrish

      how many revolutions per second was that spinning at?

      1. Frank Green

        +James Parrish a lot

    93. namn

      it was quite nice but with a static background, it seems more like the objects themselves are spinning rather than the camera around the objects

      1. obviously matt

        Sir Stephington wrong, in the movie it looks as if the camera is moving around the object because the background agrees with the object, not the camera. Putting a background which agrees with the camera makes it look like the camera is stationary and the object is spinning.

      2. Pax Skaggs

        I love the alternate title. Ghetto bullet time.

      3. Car Man

        @Just a WARLORD 0:30

      4. N o e y e s

        Yeah that’s why its so cool I wish he did that

      5. Tanan Baboo

        Maybe use a green screen to superimpose whatever you want onto the background.


      Epic DIY solution mang! Will have to this w/ Action figures

    95. Martin Embeh

      sorry, but you got the idea wrong. the camera moves around the object AND the background!

      1. Jair Soto

        It doesnt move around the backround tho

      2. Martin Embeh

        +Embeh best part actually is at 1:00 , where one can see the background.
