Slow Motion Camera INSIDE Giant 6ft Water Balloon - The Slow Mo Guys

    A lot of comments giving us mad love for being “back in the back yard” as opposed to the YouTube original shows with higher production value. I think we’ll always be back yard boys at heart. We prefer shooting on our own but it is useful having a crew sometimes. For example, Dan couldn’t wear a mic for most of this video and we had no one to hold a boom. But it would have been useful. Instead I had to boost audio from the camera mic or my mic which means the background noise is constantly going up when he speaks which I don’t really like doing. There is certainly a middle ground in terms of production value that we should try and achieve. What is it that you dislike the most about the big YouTube original shows? I’d be curious to know. They are pretty useful for us to do occasionally because it gives us the funds to get better equipment for our regular videos. Let me know your thoughts. - Gav

    EDIT - seems like people feel that the YTOs are more scripted even though none of the episodes have ever had a script. Maybe we need to do a better job and making it feel less scripted by being more comfortable?

      My idea is، make a video lapse by old camera (the fast spinner camera)☺☺☺

      So part of the issue with the "YTO" is you guys would do slow-mo at 25,000 frames, just because and who cares if it doesnt capture any difference, its whats on our minds.. 1000 fps is just not interesting and has been done forever on other shows. You guys are the Super Slo Mo guys! Will watch YTOs and Back yard stuff. Either is awesome!

      It's obviously great that you're getting bigger and better opportunities, like, what's the point if it doesn't grow and improve? I think, for me at least, the fear is that you'll lose the casual, haphazard "two guys in a back garden" feel that makes the videos so friendly and likeable, but hearing you say you think that'll always be a part of your brand is reassuring. Like I said, change and improvement is always a plus, as long as the core is still there, and considering you two are the core (not the garden), I don't think you've got too much to worry about

      Hey guys I usually love your videos but we are in a bit of a water crisis here at Chennai so seeing all those water getting wasted made me sad

                                      Hey guys so I’m definitely not the first one with this idea but it would be pretty cool to see a jet break go super sonic/break the sound barrier in slow motion. Definitely super expensive but and idea for sure

                                              JUNE 2020 GIANT WATER BALLOON IDEA:

                                              Fill the giant water balloon up on an elevated surface, then drop it. Film the balloon landing (and breaking) on the ground/grass.
                                              There are many slow motion videos of water balloons breaking when they hit a surface, but no giant water balloon videos doing the same thing.

                                                            I know, how about he operate advanced highspeed cameras that cost 10's of thousands of dollars and require a large amount of experience and skill to use?
                                                            Ooh, Maybe he could also take that footage and turn it into high quality video content that millions of people watch?
