Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys
Can Dan slice an arrow in half mid air and deflect it away from the target? Can Gav shoot the arrow at Dan without accidentally impaling him? Will they film it in Slow Mo? Definitely yes on that last question. Broken Monitor 2nd channel video -

    For those confused - the regular camera is filming at 50fps and edited in a 50fps timeline. The phantom is filming at 1000fps placed in the timeline at a playback speed of 25fps so each frame is doubled in the 50fps timeline. This means that all normal footage is much smoother looking and all the phantom footage is still played as slow as possible at 25fps. Why 50 instead of 60? 25 doesn’t fit into 60 very easily. Why 25 instead of 30? It means our phantom footage doesn’t get sped up. -Gav

    I have to admit, that the entire time you were explaining what you wanted to do, I had expected a complete train wreck with about 3 minutes of a montage footage of you just missing and running to retrieve the arrows over and over. For you to chop the head clean off, with a full swing on the very first try.... umm... yeah... so that is in fact impressive. I am very impressed.

    would be interesting to see if you could hit a arrow loosed from a 160 pound warbow and how it would effect the arrows flight.

    He must have went into that with a very clear mind, because again, as someone that trains with a katana, this is EXTREMELY difficult. Easier if the arrow is off to the side like they had it, than fired right at you, but difficult either way.
