In partnership with Ateneo Management Association, SlowMoManila powered up the Madhouse Party in Megatent Eastwood Libis Quezon City last November 21, 2014. It was a very successful event. As over 1,500 people from Ateneo, UST and other universities attended the party.
So how did the slow motion videobooth fair with such a big party?
Avalanche Reported in MetroTent
The biggest challenge of slow motion videobooth is that at first most Filipinos are shy with video cameras. Yep you heard me right, despite being a selfie country and all, Filipinos are very timid when it comes to video cameras. When we started setting up the booth, having people to try them was kind of hard. When unveiled some of party videos, people were amazed and started trying out the booth.
Like a snowball effect, the influx of the crowd rapidly grew until it became an avalanche. From couples to barkadas to baranggay groupies. People projected their best in front of the video camera. Thousands of confettis were thrown to the air, string sprays were running wild inside the booth. People were having fun as they dance and party hard inside it.
Living a Slow Life is also Awesome
Rendering moments in slow motion gives you a different perspective of life. When we shot ADMU’s video, we are amazed of how beautiful slow mo renders each moment. The smiles and laughter seemed frozen. You see emotions that you don’t see in normal frame rates. Every moment captured in the booth gives you a different story of the people inside the booth.
SlowMo Brings Out the Youth in Everybody
When we deployed the booth for ADMU, we bought new props to test out how people will react and project them in front of the camera. Ranging from Cowboy hats, Indian headgears, toy horses, toy guns and party strings, it is amazing how people express themselves through this props. Whether you are a college student, a yuppie and even a baby boomer, the booth makes you wanna play around like kids again.
The deployment of a slow motion videobooth for Ateneo is one of the best experience we had. We enjoyed how the booth was able to touch lives and bring out the best party vids from people. Atenistas has their own way of expressing themselves in slow mo and we LIKE it. 🙂 Before we part ways with this article. I would like to invite you guys to check out this AMA SlowMo Party vid.
