We used 2 high speed cameras in this video. Both were made by Vision Research:
I the stuff above water level with a Miro LC310
Gavin shot all the stuff below water with the V1610

The awesome bullet photo was created on a huge piece of film via direct shadowgraphy by Andrew Davidhazy. Thank you for the phone call Andrew.
And of course, a huge thank you to Jimmy Neutron for letting me shoot in your pool. The conversation on the phone went like this:
Neutron: Franks Fish Farm
Me: Hey... it's me
Neutron: What's up?
Me: (pause) Can I shoot an AK-47 in your swimming pool?
Neutron: (Long Pause)..... Yes......... (Longer Pause)
Me: (Silence, letting him rethink his answer)
Neutron: (Pause) The reason I said yes, is because I realize you would not ask me such an absurd question unless you had already done all the calculations and research to determine you could accomplish it safely.
Me: You are correct. I can do it safely.
Neutron: Ok then, when do we shoot?
Me: (hangs up phone, says to self) I love Alabama.

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
