    Under what kind of light? If it's under fluorescent light, then yeah, the shutter speed is so short that it's catching the fluo at different points in its brightness cycle.

    Try it in broad daylight, I'll bet you see no brightening/darkening.

    Well, the issue is that a fluorescent doesn't output a continuous stream of light, it fluctuates up and down. It uses a ballast, and the light intensity fluctuates at a certain frequency -- old fluorescents might cycle 60 times per second, newer electronic-ballast fluos might cycle at many thousand times per second.

    You can avoid the issue by using a continuous light source, such as sunlight or tungsten lighting.

    If you want the super-fast shutter look, you'll need to use a light source that is flicker-free. The cheap one is sunlight.

    Most of that "look" is in the color grade, framing, and composition. Shutter speed is really just a small part of it. To be honest, I'm not sure that shutter speed is near that high on those examples, anyway. On pieces of cinema famous for the high-shutter-speed look (e.g. Saving Private Ryan's D-Day landing) the shutter is still at 45 degrees, which is about 1/200 in 23.976 fps.

    The only reason I can think of for shooting at 1/2000 would be if your only goal is just to pull freezeframes from a video file.
