Finding joy in the outdoors since 1988
The best way to make a video stand out is by creating a unique experience for the viewer. The video needs to feel new and adventurous and even tell a story. The action in the video is very important but if presented in an "un-appatizing" way it becomes somewhat hard to watch. Like most I have only one GoPro and a cheap digital camera, I have to use my GoPro to make something somewhat ordinary look really cool or at least different. In order to do this I like to incorporate various perspectives and angles and try to time it out just right so one clip doesn't drag on and start to feel boring. I mean out of our whole recent U.P. fishing trip I pulled like 1:30 of video from hours of recording...
One of the perspectives I've always wanted was a good third person view even if I'm shooting alone. I needed something to withstand the current and give that cool action/landscape shot to bring the viewer into the video. (My videos are o.k. so far but I think I'm improving)
So... Like any redneck I scoured my garage and pieced together the perfect GoPro mount from stuff I already had laying around.
