ZAP has been formed as a collaboration of specialist services for a one-stop high speed filming service in South Africa (JNB & CPT). Production companies are mindful of the risks of quoting on high speed effects shots and ZAP aims at reducing that risk.
High speed shots require specialist equipment and planning to ensure that brief moment in time is captured in camera.
The objects being shot need to be professionally prepared to look good in camera, and wrangled to ensure the performance can be reliably triggered and repeated. Motion control is vital to ensure the camera moves down a predetermined path, triggered at the correct point in time and at high speed to get the pretty slow motion look that is the essence of ZAP.
