Like a cartoon super hero, David Richardson delivered flashes and bangs to 500 students in Walthamstow on Thursday – 15th July.
We were there to film him lecture, and to interview him for his Ever Wondered Why roadshow. David is touring the UK in a white van, with the number plate PII YSK and has already worked with 15,000 school children to enthuse them about physics.
We filmed his lecture in full HD using the Canon 7D, Canon 550D and Sony PDW-700 XD-Cam. We were delighted with the footage we got with the 7D and 550D, less so with the much more expensive XD-Cam (making its final outing for us I think!). We shot some beautiful slow-mo with the 7D at 60fps, and were really amazed at the level of detail even though its only 720p. You can see so much more detail with these slow-mo shots, much more than you could with doing the effect in post. The Institute of Physics have been really pleased with the film too and we had a great day out as well!
So if you have Ever Wondered Why… then we’ll post the links to the film as soon as they are ready.
If you can’t wait till then why not look at David’s ASE performance, we filmed this as well.
