Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum so sorry if this isn’t the way things usually go here. I have a question that I’m hoping some of you can help me with. I am going to be shooting a music video soon and have an effect and style I mind but I’m not sure the best way to shoot/edit it will be. I wish I could find an example of what it looks like but I can’t.
Here’s a basic description:
I want the subject to be at a regular speed, clear and in focus. But everyone around the subject to be moving VERY fast and have a lot of motion blur so you really dont see a ton of detail on them. If I shoot the subject at something like, 120fps with a lower than usual shutter speed like lets say 100… and just have my subject act slowly, and have everyone else act fast, do you think that will work?
I dont know what that effect is called but I have definitely seen it before. It’s a great way to make the subject feel alone and disconnected while still being in a busy environment.
If there is a better way or a CORRECT way, please let me know. And PLEASE if you can think of any example let me know. For the life of me I can’t find any.
Thanks for your help.

I don’t think that will work. I don’t know how to get that look but intentionally acting fast or slow probably will not look right. Perhaps some sort of green screen with the subject at normal speed and a separate sequence of the crowd on the side and/or behind the subject which can be sped up.
