New Viral called Embrace Life. Beautiful Video with a great message. Using high speed cameras but the violence of the impact when is wife and daughter was holding him caught my attention. Wonder how they did it?

Upon further looks I'm thinking great compositing+camera undercrank at the right spot

looks like just good film making...

look at second 49.

there are two shots there... one is extremely quick at regular speed. the second is the impact overcranked.

it gives the impression of a substantial hit but if you look at just the overcrank itself, it just looks like good acting from a seated actor and a high overcrank.

the foot stool and sequins (for some reason) could have easily been shot separately with a wirepull or aircannon, shot at the same overcrank and then comped in.

Strangely, all I could say while watching the other video was, "Ga... gaga... ga..." so I think it was appropriately named.
