This edit features 100% GoPro footage captured over the past year or so with the support of many amazing athletes, friends and musicians.
When the cameras first came out I was a little skeptical of their professional applications. In addition to the POV applications, the camera holds its own as a 2nd camera unit on assignments. Small, inexpensive and versatile the camera has empowered small footprint productions enabling a single shooter to pull off multi-camera coverage. Time-lapse function and the capability of flying the cameras around on jibs and multi rotor only adds to the production value these powerful cameras bring to the table.
