If you are familiar with the incredible show Breaking Bad, you have an idea for the unique camera angles used in many of the scenes. The perspective from the bottom of the vat as chemicals are poured in, the dizzying scenes of dancing and digging from a stationary point, many courtesy of a tiny little camera called the GoPro.
It’s not just one show that’s using the GoPro, either. You can find GoPro shots on Modern Family when they’re in the car, Gold Rush when they’re starting up the mining machines and many more examples.
And we happen to have one of these in studio right now, complete with accessories to attach to almost anything.
There’s no shortage of creative options for the GoPro camera, bringing a point-of-view perspective and wide angle excitement to otherwise ordinary tasks. Viewers feel like they’re right in the action.
You’ve probably seen the videos of GoPro’s in alpine skiing and motorcycle riding, but GoPro’s are also great for everyday videos, too. They can be easily attached to construction helmets and wedding bouquets alike. In a nutshell, according to GoPro CEO Nicholas Woodman, this camera shows “the world brought to you by you.”
Omaha Video Solutions is always looking for new ways to use this little camera in our video projects. The GoPro doesn’t replace our professional cameras but it has the potential to add unique shots and visual interest to almost any project. Imagine aerial flyovers, first-person perspectives, close-quarters shots from inside of machinery or even underwater videography. The GoPro can make your project “go” that extra mile.
In one recent project, we used the GoPro to show a machinery operator’s point-of-view from inside the vehicle.
Omaha Video Solutions is committed to telling your company story creatively. While it doesn’t replace traditional techniques and equipment, the GoPro is one of many tools we use to keep viewers engaged and entertained. Ready to see your message brought to you by you?
