This video is in 50fps and must be view on a desktop player in 720p or better for the HFR video to be seen. (50fps video starts at 1:15 and 4:07)

High Frame Rate has had little traction over the last few years. In this video I discuss why this is and when we are likely to see some adoption. This video contains a 50fps sequence of skateboarders and shows an example of how HFR can be shot and used as a tool in a filmmaker’s box of tricks. It shows how HFR is part of a new cinematic language and that we are yet to fully understand or make use of hfr in the art of storytelling on the big screen.

I hope this video helps push us forward in this art form and that its use is encouraged as I see HFR as a long term benefit to the art and business of cinema and gives exhibition more relevance as the place to go to see a movie at its best.
