The GoPro is a great POV cam, but it can also take pictures every X seconds. Since it was going to be sitting idle at the last shoot I decided to set it up on a tripod and let it go for the entire event. At the end of the day I had 2,543 pics and plenty of battery left! I will post the video in this post once it’s done..
My poor 70-200 has been sitting idle, in the box, and hasn’t see the light of day for a while.. I was so close to selling the lens to Steve Bates (CWB) and even though the extra cash would have been nice I really have to thank Steve’s wife for nixing the deal! What seemed like bad luck at the time was in fact just the opposite! Overall the video DSLR bandwagon has been out of control and I was going to wait before jumping on, but all it took was seeing the 5D Mark II footage from last weekend’s shoot, a long phone conversation with Ryan Taylor, an email exchange with Mike Isler, and a lengthy text message conversation with Travis Valtierra. Thanks guys!
Well today is the day… The 70-200 waits no more!
Just wrapped up logging the footage from the Red Bull Butter Cup at Boreal and we got some good stuff! I want to throw a shout out and thanks to Damon, his brother Dakin, and their trusty side-kick Mad Dog for helping out. We got some really sick footage, so stay tuned as the video will be dropping soon.
Just wrapped up the video for Red Bull’s Schlittentag (German for “Sledding Day”) that went down at Alpine Meadows on Saturday. It was definitely a true test of will for most of the 16 teams that participated and I’m not even talking about the intimidation factor of the 60+ foot start ramp, two huge rollers, and the finish-line drop-off.
The Schlittentag Video...
The following is the video taken by the DPCFilms CableCam v2.1 at the 2007 Spanky Beaver’s Rail Jam in Sacramento, California. This one-of-a-kind wakeboard/wakeskate event took place in an Olympic size pool where all different kind of sliders (wakeboard term for rails) were set up. The event coordinator Al Marchiniak and all the riders were kind enough to let me put my cablecam to the test.
Looking to add that timeless and ever-so-popular “film burn effect” to your videos and have no idea where to start? Well you’re in the right place! I originally created this tutorial back in the day for Premiere Pro users, but this technique can be applied to other popular NLEs like Final Cut Pro (FCP), Vegas, etc..
Just got word that I’m filming the upcoming Red Bull Schlittentag event at Alpine Meadows in Lake Tahoe, CA on March 13. What in the world is “Schlittentag”? Good question because I was thinking the same thing..
