Collaborative Photography App Allows Smartphones to Record “Bullet Time”
Bullet time has always been the preserve of high-budget movies, but now anyone can create films like this using collaborative photography techniques on their smartphones.
The phrase “bullet time” first entered the popular lexicon with the launch of the 1999 film The Matrix. This showed the hero dodging bullets in a slow motion as the camera angle moved lazily around the action. Indeed, in “bullet time” it is possible to freeze the action entirely and still move the camera angle.
