So how do you achieve the fast forward effect? The one when one character is moving at normal speed but everyone else in the room moves at very high speeds?

Thanks.

Shoot the character on a greenscreen at normal speed, and then shoot the plate undercranked for fast motion.

-or-

Have your character move/act proportionally slower, i.e...if you shoot at 1/2 normal fps (12fps) your character should move 1/2 his normal speed. Then when transfered/projected he/she will be moving normally and everything surrounding will be in fast motion.

I'm sure there are other tricks as well...
