Discovery Channel’s “Time Warp”
Stuntmen episode with Ray Carbonel and Eric Jacobus
(Extended Action Footage)
When Ray and I went out to Boston to do Time Warp we brought around a little Flip Video to shoot random stuff in Boston and also to shoot some extra footage while doing the segment. When the episode aired, we were so proud to be on TV, but they left out a few stunts, and they had edited the fight into a weird barrage of punches and kicks. Here it is, mostly unedited.
We’re hoping to get some extra slomo footage, such as my HK spin and Ray’s fall onto the metal table. And sorry but the video is a little glitchy. Editing 3ivx video is a pain in the butt, and the best I could do has some extra weird frames thrown in for no good reason.
I don’t know how long this will be on Youtube, but here’s our segment from Discovery Channel Time Warp’s ‘Stuntmen’ episode!
The Stunt People on Discovery’s ‘Time Warp’

In October 2008 Ray Carbonel and I went out to Boston to shoot an episode of Time Warp called “Stuntmen.” They filmed us doing various stunts using the Phantom HD Camera, which puts everything into super-slow motion, giving the effect that its subjects are frozen in time. HK spins, falls through tables, fake bottles, squibs, and more are featured in our episode.
The schedule table for our show is below, and we’ll do our best to get the video posted here as soon as it airs for those who missed it.

Welcome to Discovery Channel’s new series Time Warp, in which MIT scientist and teacher Jeff Lieberman uses new technologies to bring truly never-before-seen wonders into a form that your body can actually process.
Using the latest in high-speed photography, the Time Warp team takes some natural events (a cat licking its paw, a champagne bottle being opened) and some not-so-natural (a water balloon to the face, a raw piece of chicken exploding) and turns them into a thing of both beauty and learning.
