Hey all,

This is a tricky one, I made this video of a hovercraft for a company extremesports.ie, some people really like it but some people think its too generic! I would like to work on my style and make it more my video style rather than generic action sports videos! Any tips? 

Im filming a big project in a month or two with Cliff Jumping, Massive Bungee Jumps and more action sports.

 

Great to hear your thoughts :) Also if you can watch in 4k!

When in doubt, tell a story.  Always tell a story.  

Visual montage is common.  Good storytelling is not.  Do you know the story behind this subject?  Can you find one and make it interesting?  Hard to do, right?  That's why to do so would be special.

Also, many many action videos are wide angle.  Almost al of them.  It would be a challenge to create one with a longer focal length.  Say, a 50mm s35 equivalent.  At the very least it would look different, and that's not "generic."

This is the age of action cams like the GoPros. People subconsciously realize what the distortion does to movements, centering the view and sucking vanishing lines down the drain. Boring. The very opposite, a very long shot with foreground and background compressed, is still something special (see "Bayhem"). The very best is the intercutting of different perspectives and framing.

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?

      Hello all. I am selling my Atomos Ninja Flame set. Very nice set. Has only 15-20 hours of use. Extremely clean, and well maintained. I treat all of my gear with care and respect. This is a beautiful set! Almost like-new! $795.00 - plus shipping (insured at full $795). PayPal only.

      It's hard to part with the recorder, because it is a great tool, and an amazing monitor - but all my main cameras have 4K built-in now, and I just never get to use it. I want it to go to a good home, where it will get a lot of use.
      Includes: Atomos Ninja Flame monitor/recorder, Hard case, NEW sun hood, original set of 5 master caddies, original charger, (2) original Atomos batteries, docking station, HDMI cable, original manual, NEW microfiber cleaning cloth, coiled D-tap to DC cable (never used), 2 power cords (one hasn't left packaging), Control Cable (2.5mm Female to 2x 2.5mm Male). Check out the pictures and see how well maintained and what a deal this is!

      Thank you for looking and best wishes!
