How to Pull off a Super Simple 'Water Tunnel' Effect In-Camera

If you've got a waterproof camera and a faucet, you can do this clever little trick.

This is one of those effects that makes you go, "Why didn't I think of that?" YouTube user digi47 shows us how to create a cool "water tunnel" effect by taking a camera, preferably waterproof (unless you're some sort of silk-laden king who cares not the cost of such cinematic finery), lining up the lens with a faucet, and turning the ol' gal on. What happens is pretty sweet and worth experimenting with. Check it out below:

Right!? It looks like a trippy, warp speed/time travel/water tunnel! Imagine what you could turn this into if you took it into post and put in a little work in After Effects.

Come on ...who doesn't want to go put their GoPro under the faucet right now! ...

"If you've got a waterproof camera"

Well, duh. A more useful article would show us how to do it WITHOUT a waterproof camera.

Not that it doesn't look cool.
