Bullet Theory Films: Glorious Top Shot Slow Mo

Bullet Theory Films, a production company specializing in digital high speed content (e.g., what the eye cannot) for marketing, product analysis, R&D efforts (and of course entertainment) recently released a video they advise pays homage to the good times they had during the Top Shot series, “…the only way we know how.” Quite fittingly, they do so with a glorious, gratuitous compilation of slow motion footage they captured over the course of five seasons. They advise their, “…on screen experts, sharp shooters, armorers and firearms played a pivotal role in getting the shot just right.”

This video was apparently shot exclusively with something called a Phantom v.12.1 camera for all slow motion shots during all five seasons of the show. I say apparently because I know nothing of cameras — we used Polaroids to document a lot of stuff during my rookie years on the road (true story).

220, 221…whatever it takes.

As the company explains their work,

“Slow motion cinematography has become ubiquitous in today's modern filmmaking to record fast phenomena for the purpose of product marketing, analysis, R&D or just plain fun.

Bullet Theory Films Co-Founders Matt Novello and Matt Drake first met on the set of History Channel's highly successful competition reality show TOP SHOT. Throughout five seasons, the show set a benchmark in the art of capturing firearms and live ammunition in action, which has yet to be surpassed.

Utilizing the latest digital high speed technology, Bullet Theory Films offers a full range of production services; from concept development, to the final delivery of your vision.”

They've produced a number of pieces worth watching, from a Sinterfire Ammunition commercial for frangible lead free ammunition to body armor videos for Point Blank. They're also evidently involved with GunnyTime on the Outdoor Channel.

Bullet Theory Films is a Los Angeles based company in business since January of 2010. You can contact them at info(at) They're online here and on Facebook right here.
