Faster than a speeding you-know-what

Every new Sonic game offers players a new power or new characters, but what always brings the fans back is the pure, unadulterated speed of Sonic himself. Hence, the motivation behind D/C’s fourth live action spot for the venerable franchise. Using a Phantom HD high-speed camera shooting at 6,000 frames a second, the agency was able to capture an actual moving bullet, parodying the famous Edgerton strobe photos of the 1960s. Then it was composited with normal frame-rate action to complete the effect and — voila —the high-speed hedgehog is back.
