Slicing an Arrow in Half Mid-Air in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published: 20 August 2019
  • Can Dan slice an arrow in half mid air and deflect it away from the target? Can Gav shoot the arrow at Dan without accidentally impaling him? Will they film it in Slow Mo? Definitely yes on that last question. Broken Monitor 2nd channel video -

    For those confused - the regular camera is filming at 50fps and edited in a 50fps timeline. The phantom is filming at 1000fps placed in the timeline at a playback speed of 25fps so each frame is doubled in the 50fps timeline. This means that all normal footage is much smoother looking and all the phantom footage is still played as slow as possible at 25fps. Why 50 instead of 60? 25 doesn’t fit into 60 very easily. Why 25 instead of 30? It means our phantom footage doesn’t get sped up. -Gav

                                I like how he says "but look the guy still got it in the gut. At least he didnt get it in the shoulder." Like getting shot in the gut is not as bad as in the shoulder.

                                                          Do NOT shoot an arrow straight upwards. It can come back down, and it will hit something. These guys are supposively professionals, but they should know better. Even if the tip isn't a real arrow tip.

Much larger margin for error. Good footage, but as demonstrated, the feat of striking an arrow with a sword is not difficult.
