I'm shooting a narrative short/ music video (like "Thriller", story for first 5 minutes, then music). The director likes the idea of some slow motion throughout the music video section of the film. I have seen in music videos that the singer is singing in sync, but he is moving in slow motion. I was wondering how this is achieved. I am shooting on an Arri SR3, S16mm, Kodak 500T and 200T. Any ideas about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Play the song in slo-mo to match the cam's frame rate...

You speed up the playback track by the same amount that you are over cranking the camera. So if you are shooting 48fps then the playback speed needs to be doubled as well.
