SPLICE BOYS are a Shanghai-based creative team specializing in professional camera array effects. Operating a state of the art multi-camera rig with an emphasis on spatial time bending, motion blur, events activations and 3D light sculpting, this young Aussie team produces smooth, sharp visual effects ideal for modern film and advertising production.
The rig or multi camera array, is made up of 96 DSLR cameras that can fire either in sync or progressively to make a video sequence. A custom developed triggering system controls speed and motion while variables in distance, shape and light are managed by an expert production team.

Fusing experimental image delay technique with a solid pop-culture aesthetic, the team is equally adept at blockbuster effects and slick advertising campaigns as experimental shorts and innovative visual pops.
