High speed finale and page (06 Nov 2006 at 15:34)
Here's the last video Mike and I recorded a few months ago when we had access to the high speed camera. Synchronizing the camera (which can only record for about a second) with the destruction is always tricky, but we did really well on this one and also the video is not quite what you think it is.

I also created a page with all of the videos in one place: Tom and Mike's High Speed Movies.

Good fun. Thanks for posting these. On a couple of the movies (bulbdrop, waterplate2), there appears to be liquid scattering with the other objects. Is there liquid? If so, why? If not, what am I seeing?

Also, what kind of camera did you use?

Yeah, waterplate is (naturally) a plate covered in water. The lightbulb is filled with water to make it a little different from the standard high-speed bulb drop cliche, if that can be said to exist. ;)

Unfortunately I don't remember what kind of camera we were using...

Was that a normal guitar strum, or did you really belt it? I noted that the way the finger hits the inside of the soundhole doesn't look like something that would happen with a normal strum, unless you really weren't paying attention! ;)

I tuned the strings down almost an octave and hit it as hard as I could. Definitely not a normal strum...
