Spaceship engineer Mark Rober (honestly, how cool a title is that?) shows how to recreate the Matrix's "bullet-time" effect using nothing more than a ceiling fan, a Go Pro camera and some creativity.

A simple trick to get awesome Matrix-like "Bullet Time" footage for waaaaay less money than most people spend on it with huge camera arrays.

I shot all off this footage with a GoPro HD Hero 3 at 240 fps. NO TWIXTOR!!!... but I did you use After Effects smooth motion thing in parts which is pretty much the same thing... it just seems like writing NO TWIXTOR is like a badge of honor for slow mo videos for some reason... so I wanted to put it in there.
