    Did this at a party in college. Had black lights and glow stickers on the end of the fan blades but set a strobe light to match fan speed to make the blades look stationary. The glow stickers though formed a greenish halo around the fan. It was a cool effect - until people who had a few drinks tried to touch it, were surprised it hurt to touch, and would try to touch it again.
    I also enjoy car wheels that spin so fast they look like they are spinning backwards slowly.

    Your brain has a frame rate. Watch wheel rims on a car as they accellerate or decelerate. They'll appear to slow down, then reverse direction. If they could maintain the exact speed where the apparent direction changes, they would appear frozen. After all, in order for it to reverse direction, even apparently, it has to come to a full stop.

    I used to have a wooden helicopter back like 2005 and would spin the blades as fast as I could in front of our living room TV.
    Let me tell you how shocked 5 year old me was when it looked like they were starting to spin in reverse.

  • 0MindSwept0

    I like the style of this video, it was sort of a debunking video, but also sort of a "how it was done" video like you've been doing lately; hopefully we see more like this in the future. 👍
    Also, that ending was a real smash ;p

    How did you do the ceiling fan on head effect? I assume you didn’t use an actual ceiling fan for it.
    Did you mime the motion and add the fan afterwards or did you use something that looks like a fan?

    Don’t underestimate the power of vision and direction. These are irresistible forces, able to transform what might appear to be unconquerable obstacles into traversable pathways and expanding opportunities. Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself. Take care with yourself.
    Define who you are. Refine your personality. Choose your destination and articulate your Being. As the great nineteenth-century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche so brilliantly noted, “He whose life has a why can bear almost any how.
