Looking for photos/videos, or car crashes with distorting metal
May 27, 2013 6:57 AM   Subscribe

Looking for videos, commercials, scenes from a movie you can recall, of high definition car crashes or scenes of metal rippling and distorting. Slow motion, hi def, very vivid is the best. Here is a video with something similar: http://vimeo.com/9078364 Its for an art project. Thank you so much for any thoughts or ideas.

11foot8.com is a classic collection of videos of trucks and vans hitting a railway bridge.

It's been a while since I saw it, but I think Cronenberg's "Crash" might qualify in a few spots. Also, Mythbusters has a variety of car crashes, generally in high speed replay. The ultimate, I think, is a car essentially disintegrating when a rocket sled slams into it. I think what's going on for part of it is the paint vaporizing into a colored cloud

The Texas Transportation Institute might be able to help you.

Jonathan Schipper's art installation might in fact even be too slow for your purposes. ;)
