Trying Out the Centriphone technique

With just a GoPro camera, a coat hanger, and some string the first year animation students tried out the centriphone technique. Which involves attaching a GoPro camera to a coathanger that has string attached to it and then swinging the GoPro camera above your head which becomes a cross between a lasso and a boomerang.

The GoPro camera can record at 120 frames per second which allows it to capture people and objects whilst moving at high speed. The effect is a way of creating a 360 degrees bullet time effect such as they achieved in The Matrix with lots of cameras.
