Here's a launch of a Saturn V Rocket, filmed at 576 frames per second. The 36 second launch takes almost 9 minutes.

I get a lot of questions about every aspect of the launch and the film. Please read all the comments and responses then search "Saturn V" on Wikipedia (without quotes) read up on that, most of your questions will be answered.

As for the way it was filmed. The launch was shot on 16mm film at a frame rate of over 500 frames per second. the camera was housed in a protective steel box with a quartz glass window. The camera f-stop was stopped down to f22 or higher to compensate for the bright light of the engines. If you are to young to know what film is, or f-stops are please look them up on Wikipedia I will not answer questions about that subject.
