High end production Bullet time photography creates magic moments in film, TV and adverts, making them uniquely memorable
In a world where we’ve become desensitised to the brilliance of special effects, it’s our production quality CGI free Time Slice Effect, which is bringing the true art of photography, as the lens captured it, with no artificial special effects. It’s why we’ve worked with Hollywood blockbuster Zoolander 2, created the Skindred Music Video, Toyota advert, the award winning Pepsi advert with Insa, and had two installations in the London Barbican Centre with Sophie Clements work we created.
With over 30 years between the 2 partners in the movie industry, there is little they haven’t done. Whether it is a small advertising campaign, a low budget music video, or the ultimate high-end multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster, our Production Bullet Time Rigs have been to them all.
We are used to working in all conditions… working through the nights on the side of a mountain in a blizzard for Land Rover, all the way to a none air-conditioned studio in Rome shooting Zoolander 2 on the hottest ever recorded temperature in Italy (42 oC), the NWD team won’t have any issues, but may need a constant supply of fizzy drinks, chocolate and pizzas.

The system has been designed by us from the ground up, we have bought nothing in at all. We literally soldered every wire, created all the tech boxes, clamps have been hand made by our fabricators, had custom made truss systems, and the wiring looms are designed to be replaceable as fast as possible if things go wrong, to reduce down time.
We can now setup 96 cameras, fully aligned, and ready to go live faster than 8hrs.
We output the movie at 6K and then reduce it down to what ever size you need, or we can provide at full 6K uncompressed so you can digitally zoom in and move around the scene.
The system works with no internet connection of any form.
We can change any setting on the cameras, press sync, and the entire array will synchronise in a few seconds. The system automatically downloads all the images for the cameras to a central main computer that is onsite.
For the on-site preview of the movie, we will render a movie for you that is visibly almost perfect. This is the same standard we will use for Experiential (See our experiential portfolio). We will then by hand (literally) align the movies to be perfect and smooth and provide those to you a few days later.
