Production Tip: Rotate Products on Motorized Table Instead of a basic static cut-away shot to a product, you can add more value to your production with dynamic movements. Common methods might be to use a rotating table dolly, or even a basic video slider. Another very simple method to add movement is to just rotate the product on a motorized table. This is the easiest and most consistent way to get quality footage as the lighting and camera can remain completely still. I’ve been using rotating tables for quite some time, and have even built a DIY super heavy duty motorized lazy susan (check out the video here) for certain projects.

The blog of Jeremiah WarrenCreating a DIY time slice/bullet time rig with a ceiling fan and GoPro For July 4th I created the following video of fireworks. I’ve always been fascinated by the time slice technique (also known as “bullet time”). Probably the most famous version of this comes from a scene in the first Matrix film where Neo dodges a series of bullets. To capture this look the filmmakers set up an array of cameras that fired off at high speeds in sequence. How to organize your computer and still remember where you put everything — CHNL by Chanel If you’re like me, your desktop probably doesn’t look like this most of the time. In fact, if you’re anything like me, it probably looks more like this. As part of Operation: Clean Out The Engine Sludge, I recently reorganized my entire computer and put every last file away where it belonged.
