Based on the old Folgers Coffee commercials, I wanted to test out a shoot entirely on slo motion at various frame rates with the RED Epic.

Setup during a day for pre production and shot planning (where we found the GoPro to be very tricky to get to work as you cant preview real time slo motion on the app). Day 2 was shooting and figuring out the best frame rates to use per shot based on the action involved, other then the coffee grinds i think it was kept around 96 fps.

Grading the GoPro footage next to the RED was another challenge and even with protune and flat color space I had blow out issues and had to give into a “learning” experience with not being able to correct everything the way i wanted to.
