A Tribute to the Art of Slow Mo in Cinema
A slow motion shot in a movie, while somewhat cliched, can work wonders when done well. No matter how many times the trick has been pulled, when it’s used to good effect in a scene, it can help heighten a dramatic event or emphasise an action scene—take the opening sequence of Deadpool for example.
This montage from Jim Casey showcases some of cinema’s most memorable slow mo scenes. From the elevator scene in The Shining to anything in The Matrix, they’re great moments.
