Wedding Video Shot with only a GoPro Hero3

I took a GoPro Hero 3 with me to a wedding back in the UK as a test to film the event with only one camera and no stabiliser (my Feiyu WG is currently back in China getting repaired).

On the edit below you'll see the results. In FCPX I made heavy use of the 'blur' transitions along with keyframing camera movements to connect shots. Around 75% of the shots had to be stabilised in FCPX too.

The GoPro seemed to overexpose most shots so I used FCPX's built in Colour Board to drop the highlights, midtones and shadows down.

Finally I used the 'Glory' Effect to enhance some of the shots and give them that extra glow.

I found the track "Quittin' Time" by Patrick Lee on the Free Music Archive in the 'Music for Video' section, under a creative commons license.

Photographing Skiers During a Solar Eclipse

Photographer Reuben Krabbe had a dream to capture skiers riding during a solar eclipse and he seized the opportunity to do this in Svalbard with the support of Salomon.

Here's the video we put together for Red Bull Illume:


Thanks to Reuben for the images and Switchback Entertainment for the video footage.

You can watch a full Salomon Freeski TV episode of the whole thing here.

The Best GoPro Video Stabiliser - Feiyu WG

Took the Feiyu 3-Axis WG wearable gimbal out for a test with a GoPro Hero 3+ while skiing.

I shot everything at 1080p 60fps and no stabilisation software was applied.

 

Up to 00:24s in this video the gimble was attached to a handheld Hitcase ShootR Telescopic Extension Pole. From 00:25s on, it was on the GoPro Chesty, images below:
