Controlling individual water drops
Water drops electronically controlled for use in the recent MYKITA commercial which we shot with Stephan Wever at Parasol Island in Düsseldorf.
We control how many drops, how frequently they fall, with what kind of delay and in which position?
Liquids floating in space
Here we see leaves floating on water drops in mid air. This effect lasts just an instant and depends on use of the Phantom high-speed camera. The cherries float more on a film of water than drops…
Water will make a very thin continuous “film” under certain circumstances… We’ve made films using various viscosities of oil and even glucose, (although other physical-effectsstart taking over at these high viscosities.
In fact we’ve made a spiral of liqueur using a twisting film of transparent oil… We want to soon make a floating carpet of chocolate.
Controlling water jets
Water jets are the way to make many splashes. We electronically control direction and volume of the jets, which in turn controls the amount of effect that the camera will see and in which position in the camera move.
