New GoPro promo clips, so sick

Recommended Posts

While this is a product manufacture company doing the promo video, it's one of the best short vids I've seen in a long time in the action sports world. It's almost as if these guys watched That's it That's all and / or hired the directors from that to make this.

I have both the Hero 2 and the Hero 3 black edition. although they are absolutely amazing, that video gives them a false representation. That video has many filters and edits done to make the footage look really good, and the slow motion is actually not the easiest to do at all. Especially some of the scenes that are really slow, you need to spend a few hundred on a video program to get that done.

That being said, I love the gopro's, a ton of fun, huge variety of settings and usages.

Oh you're absolutely right @NorthernBrother, most all of that footage was shot at 60fps and then edited and shown at 24fps to get the speed right - and some serious rigging, multiple cameras, great overall team effort. I can't imagine the hundreds and hundreds (if not thousands) of hours of footage the edit team had to sift through to make a 5 minute video. You also need to be real comfortable in a chair with Premier or Final Cut.

I still think the GoPro has forever changed videography for the better. They are cheap, can be stuck anywhere, and it's not uncommon for reality / real world based TV shows to use hundreds of these to get otherwise impossible shots. The real skills are now being shown with editing though.

    • I did a little bit of research but instead of digging through hundreds of topics about creams I just thought I ask straight about applying in middle of tattooing....
    • As someone middle-aged but new to the tattoo scene (just started the work on my first a couple weeks ago, going in for the second session tomorrow) I'm theorizing maybe it's the "social media + Instagram" popularity/bandwagon thing? People see all these awesome tattoos online, usually a zoomed in, well lit/cropped image that looks amazing.  The hype starts, they rush out to get in on the awesomeness, then suddenly reality hits "wait, this isn't a nice cropped imagine online, this is on me forever and it does have some affect/impact on my daily life".  Probably mostly an overblown impression that fades over time, but that first realization hits hard. Dunno, that's my worthless $0.02 on it.  That feeling isn't something I share: I'm pretty sure my first one I'm getting is perceived as "dumb" by the general public (my wife gave me the 'hmmmm' response so far lol), but I'm cool with that, it makes me happy to get anyways.
    • @Dan Thank you! I had Kurt do my other foot 9 years ago but I've put off this one because it was so damn painful! Hahah @SStu Same! Putting my weight over my leg or digging my heel into the table made it easier to sit still. If I tried to relax I'd get a bit shaky/twitchy!  @oboogie Agreed! My feet are quite bony as well, makes for an uncomfortable session!
