A little while back I was contacted by Bruce Devon and & John Irwin and they pitched a post about a new "hack" - an intervalometer/firmware hack that ramps the camera shutter to 1/93000, allowing to action-freeze action sports. Indecently it was April's first.
Now, I am not really sure what "ramping the shutter to 1/93000" even means, but I loved the resulting video, and asked them for some explanations on how the video was made. Turns out that while shooting the video took a bit under two hours, creating the freezing effect took about 35 hours of after effects effort. The prank, textual explanations and a how to video after the jump.
