Premium: Setting Up the High-Speed Camera Test

Watch us prep for the video shoot in this behind-the-scenes video! This was the first setup for our day of high-speed camera testing. We only had three side windows to shatter, so getting the lighting and camera focus right was important. Of course, not everything worked as planned.

  1. First small explosions, now breaking windows. This week on Tested we see how effectively you can lower property value’s in Norm’s neighbourhood!

    This behind the scenes stuff is facinating though (complete with Norm’s dancing). Gives a great insight into the effort it takes to produce your site content.

  2. For some reason I’m having trouble viewing the last two premium videos on my iPad3 using the Safari browser. I’m running the latest version of iOS 7. The video window shows but the play button is grayed-out with a line through it. I’m logged in as a premium user and the video with Adam watching the movie trailer seems to work fine. Not sure what is going on.

  3. The flash version of the video works..

    but the download link / mp4 version is broken:

  4. This ‘Behind the scenes’ style of video was great! Please shoot more of these..

    PS – You guys are always talking about the various projects that you are working on. I would suggest that if you plan on using Norm’s backyard to do a lot of filming, that you get some lumber and build a simple set of stairs. That would save having to constantly jump up and down off that giant slab ‘o concrete.. 😉
