This has got an awesome feel to it.
Lots of different emotions, experiences and 'feel' to extract from a 'freeze'.
It really puts you in the middle of the chaos.

what was that movie where they robbed a bank or something, and wired hostages as human claymores.

had a similar 3D effect where they did a 360 degree time lapse outward spiral that followed the explosions expansion and finished with someone lying on the floor watching a ball bearing rolling across the floor and coming to rest

Fuck, I know the one. Had a stupidly long starting scene with John Travolta bitching about hollywood. Can't remember the name.

Nice find Rhino. It's an advert for Philips 21:9 ratio cinema TV. Saw a demo in Malaysia last year, amazing looking set.

I never understood how they do this effect especially when they do 360 views.

Well, this is NOT a matrix 'bullet time' thing or whatever they called it where they place about 30 cameras in a circle and takes frames from each one.

From my 'research' it uses actors, dummies and props, wired, with one or several pans/tracks/dollys and it is all removed post production. A few seamless camera swaps as well perhaps? Can't see how it could be done in one take.

I think there are links on youtube to a bit of a behind the scenes...

The opening scene from swordfish was mint when you see the reflection in the ball bearing.
Oh to be Hugh Jackman in that one :)

It looks like the set itself is static and the actors(or at least some of the trickier poses) are digital inserts.

(They haven't removed the jitter quite properly from a few of them)

Edit: can really see it in the higher def version, http://s3.amazonaws.com/beam_offsite_beamreels/philips_h264_New_File_pplus.mov

Very very cool though, cunning clown after all that...
