These images are from a film I made a while back. I stacked a bunch of
water balloons in a large section of PVC pipe and placed a trap door at one end.
When the water balloons were released (from a height of about 15 feet) a hi-speed
camera was triggered (by hand) and the film that resulted produced the following images.
The tense face is mine. Eric Darnell dug up the hi-speed camera and he was the one
who knew how to use it (although the first load of film turned into sawdust). I
think the camera shot about 1000 fps - it went through a 2.5 minute (100') roll of
film in about 2 to 3 seconds and looked and sounded like a circular saw! You can view the film at: animation
