How to edit/shoot a scene where the person(subject) in center moves normally while the surroundings(background) moves faster?


I'm walking in the street but the cars and other people that passes me are faster than me.

P.S. I can't find it in youtube or other blogs because I don't know the term of this kind of technique yet.

BTW, I am a newbie.


If you are talking about I.e. the effect used in this video by orbital: https://youtu.be/ymu_ogcXigg... this is done by letting run the camera in time lapse mode and moving very slowly, making the surrounding appear very fast.

  • Actually I already thought about that but I saw a lot of scene where the subject moves normally (not moving slowly then time lapse the surrounding).. I will look like not moving normally when I will do that technique. But if that's the only way, then I'll try my best to move slowly but looks like natural in output. Thanks.
