I Love This Job

Here is a video shot for Discover magazine's March cover. Fine art photographer Shinichi Maruyama also has a commercial studio- Biwa Studios- in Long Island City that specializes in high speed photography.
Outside a drywall house built inside the Biwa studio to contain the explosions, special effects technician Jeremy Chernick anchored tiny SD 70-4 detonators into clay inside the clocks, and blew them up using an electrical charge. A Phantom HD high speed HD video camera was used to capture the explosions, and our selected still was used on the cover.
