Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published: 20 August 2019
  • 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 was wondering, when Dan hit the feathers off of the second arrow, the Phantom was right beside him and the arrow shot past it, but in the other angle beside Gav shooting the arrow, the Phantom was not there. Anyone?

      You wouldn't have broken your monitor if you had spent 15 minutes learning how to properly draw and release a bow. The reason your arrows went left of your target is because of the way you are holding the grip.

                                        Gav, like, a year later: now uploads The Slow Mo Guys videos in high framerate...
