GoPro

Holy this looks INSAAAAAANE:

Like everything on earth now, there is money being raised via crowdfunding.  If you have any extra, burning a hole in your pocket you can throw it their way.  I’m really not mad at using crowdfunding for stuff like this.  Using it to expand a business because you’re lazy AF and impatient though is another thing.

Definitely an interesting way to film, and an interesting point of view.  I felt my stomach getting queasy after a while in the above preview though because of the wacky camera movement.  Hardcore is advertised as “feature length” so to me that means it’s going to be around 1.5 – 2 hours long… whoa.

By the look of the preview trailer they didn’t cut corners on effects, locations, stunts, explosive, after effects or anything else.  That’s awesome to see.

Hardcore-Poster-GoProI wonder if anyone has ever crowd sourced free post production?  Can you imagine how quickly something like this could be finished if hundreds or thousands of people worldwide offered to spend time on it for free?  Sure there would have to be some quality control and redos, but overall it might be surprising how nicely it turns out.

Thoughts?  I hope these guys succeed.

Richard Ryan has more GoPro than most:

Richard-Ryan-ENDO-California-RKBA1:21 – “Whenever I’m in an airplane or something like that” <– FLEX FLEX FLEX haha Richard is awesome.  Jumping out of planes, shooting guns, filming the best slow motion…

GoPro definitely know what they’re doing.  I know a lot of people who swear by those cameras.  Sure beats potentially ruining a several thousand dollar camera.

He’s got the California No Right To Bear Arms t-shirt on of course.  Obviously one of his favorite ENDO gun shirts because it’s awesome, and because he’s from California.

Thoughts?  Does your GoPro collection trump his?

This could have ended a lot worse:

This was shot using a DJI phantom and a gopro camera. This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the groom on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and and the side of his head.

You can view the entire video which includes footage after the collision HERE.

Looks-Shopped-Tell-By-Pixelshahah wow, that would have been a pretty close fly-by.  I hope the photographer didn’t charge anything for the shoot.

Posted because of my love for quadcopters and drones, preferably weaponized.

Elaborate marketing scheme?  Real?  Shopped?  Can you tell by the pixels?
