Hello everyone. I've done a lot of searching online and really couldn't find any info on this. In all of the popular vampire movies/shows, the vampires have super speed when they run or attack someone.

I was thinking to lower the shutter speed (to create a motion blur) and have them run and speed it up in post? Is there a better way to do this?

Just to add if you are curious.

In the twilight film running scenes they have the actors pretending to run suspended in the air on a wire in front of a green screen. They then superimpose this footage on top of some pre-recorded shots of a camera zooming through the woods on what I would assume is a track.

Mind you, this is only for the Mid body shots and I am not sure what CGI/camera trickery they use for the full body shots including the camera moving around the subject!
