    To view with less compression, select 4K even if you don't have a 4K screen. You'll get a higher bit rate. Slow mo pro-tip. - Gav

    This is the most gorgeous slo mo video I have ever watched. You guys need to do this with mercury. Might need a more powerful mixer to get the same effect, though.

    the first milk and tea one would be an amazing transition from a blender in Starbucks to the inside of a persons throat, drinking the drink

    Can you do the same as you did with the vinyl motion ? Instead of having the liquid rotating in the glass, having the background rotating and then the vortex would be still but we will get to see the waves on it ?

    You guys should do a video with a story of some kind, like a getting ready for a shoot day type of video with cool Slo-Mo shots of everything... making breakfast and tea (eggs cracking, stirring tea, get that sugar drop right!), morning shower (cool shots of the water coming out of the nozzle and hitting faces) and everything else up to the daily shoot, (like starting up your computer and watch the fans and stuff kick on, or whatever else you do daily, or think would be cool.)
    It could be a skit about how you guys see potential for SloMo in everything you do now!

    If you could do the same but spin the camera as you down that would be cool, spin the opposite way of the water

    I recommend not touching the metal part of the plug when you put it in.

    As a vegan, the globby, mucous-y milk at around 07:53 makes me feel physically nauseous. ‘Tis cow juice indeed.

    tea and milk seems so strange to me, sugar and lemon please.

  • teqqqie
    teqqqie Month ago

    Do this but have the blender on so that you can see the sugar cube break apart. I think that'd be cool

    MILK..... IN ….. TEA ? no sugar? that's not bitter a.f? just drink coffee!
    find Cajun boiled peanuts, and sweet iced tea, hold the milk. (no lemon)
    you're welcome.

    Only warm tea? Iced tea is the only way 👌

    I really liked how the mixer started to pull the vortex down in the cup! If that could be the focus next time that could make a really wicked video!

    When the lens dipped into the tea following the sugar cube I felt like I was the second sugar cube falling in and it was some kind of satisfying that I was not expecting...

    11:38 did the sugar have time to ponder its world as it fell? did it want to be friends i wonder
