Nice use of lots of GoPro’s and simultaneous wraparounds

An array of 15 GoPro cameras helped one amateur filmmaker slow life down with cool bullet-time effects.

Marc Donahue of Permagrin Films showed off his half-circle grouping of GoPro cameras that can simultaneously capture a shot, turning everyday images of people cooking or riding bikes into something out of The Matrix.

Donahue demonstrated the device through several videos on his YouTube channel. The ultraportable GoPros are synchronized to shoot around the subject to get a visually arresting wraparound effect.

But the technique isn’t perfect, yet. In a YouTube comment, Donahue admitted that he is “making a cable” to help the cameras fire in closer succession, so footage will be smoother on future attempts.

GoPro provided Donahue with the 15 cameras for the video, he told blog FStoppers. Donahue added that he’s planning to release a music video using the same technique, soon.
