Whether you like French electronica group Dancing Pigeons or not, must of us can appreciate a music video depicting a showdown between two rednecks, one armed with a flamethrower and the other armed with a fire extinguisher.
One word. Epic.
Director Tomas Mankovsky describes the how-to process behind the shoot:
It was difficult to know how this shootout would look like in superslowmo. We did some tests with a gas-flamethrower but the flame was only 2-3 meters and it looked quite bad in slowmo, so the special effects guys had to build a new flamethrower from scratch. They made one with liquid fuel, and that one was much better, firing out 10-15 meter flames. But the first time we saw how the flamethrower and fire extinguisher looked and behaved in slowmo was on the day of the shoot.
