Snapping a Blade in Slow Motion

Uploaded on Monday 9 May 2011


Breaking an epee in slow motion at 500fps. This is an out take from Speed of Fencing, a short film featuring fencing.

Here is the synopsis for Speed of Fencing:
Behind the bullet, the tip of a fencing blade is the second fastest-moving object in Olympic sports. Speed of Fencing captures the grace and movements of New York’s top epee fencers. In epee, the play between defending and attacking the whole body as the target creates an intricate game of space and distance. Using high-speed photography, spectators will be able to see some of the fastest actions in all of sport for the first time.
