Using a mortar and compressed air we were able to shoot a variety of debris and water up into the sky!
We had a 12×20 green backdrop for the dust elements to key and keep the shadow. For the water burst elements we backlit the bursts and used a 20×20 black backdrop to pull the key.
These were all shot at 4K resolution, slowed from 120fps to 29.97fps
