This is very common scene in movies and TV shows where a character is shown standing stationary but all other characters' movement is shown in kinda fast forward mode. And these characters are moving around that stationary character.
- What is this technique called? (if at all there is one)
- How is this effect achieved? Two possibilities I can think of:
- Actually shoot the complete scene normally and then use a time-lapse (or a similar) technique.
- Just shoot the central guy and add all others characters separately using graphics software
Please add any interesting/technical details (from purely learning point of view) if you think they can be helpful.
An example scene to supplement the question:
Another example (WARNING: Some NSFW content!):
P.S. I am tempted to add the question "When was this technique first used in Movie or on TV?" But I am afraid that might not be acceptable. Moderators, please guide.
