BMW PGA Championships – 360° Sequential Bullet Time
BMW was the main sponsor of the PGA 2017 Championships at Wentworth Golf Club. We were asked by TRO to provide a photographic experience as a centerpiece for one of the main stands.
As a solution Say Fromage developed a sequential camera trigger for our 360 Bullet Time photography rig. This was designed and built from scratch especially for this project.
The trigger allowed the cameras to be triggered sequentially at up to 75fps to create incredible slow-motion bullet time videos.
For the final experience, golf fans entered an enclosed set, where they were greeted by a recording that informed them of when to swing their golf club. As they swung the 32 cameras took 64 pictures within 3 seconds and as they finished their swing a crowd cheered and they were instructed to exit and view their video.
On exiting the fans could share their video, make a print as well as entering a competition on one of two large touch screens built into the stand.
