Bullet Time might be a registered trademark with Warner Bros. going back to The Matrix days, but the techniques are around about 35ish years old.

The Camera Hire Company Bullet Time Rig

With a hat tip to the past and the history lesson done, we will call The Camera Hire Company’s camera rig a Time Slice rig. But you get the picture regardless of what we are allowed to call it.

The Picture Hire Company was commissioned by the producers of the “17th Kind” to supply the 34 Canon 5D MKIII cameras, lenses and heads for a Time Slice rig for their short film.

Check out the BTS building of a 34 camera Time Slice camera rig built from scratch and used around London on the 17th Kind short.

See The Camera Hire Company for more information.
