General thoughts on Footage
We want Skateboarding footage, yes. But we also want to capture the LIFESTYLE and SURROUNDINGS.
So, Whenever you're out filming, take some shots of the crew, a high-five, a beer or whatever funny shit your doing.
Take in the scenery BEFORE and AFTER the sk8 action too. We can always not use it ;) but better to HAVE some.
GoPro 10 Settings cheat cheat
Sk8 Static : 4K 120fps wide lens or SuperView
sk8 Follow: 2.7K 120fps / SuperView / Hypersmoot: Boost
Scenery: 4K 60fps / Linear (+horizon leveling ?)
SlowMo: 2K 240fps / whatever Lens / for extreme SloMo
More Details and recommended Profiles -> see Below!
If your moving the cam along, use 2.7K on 120fps with HYPERSMOOTH Hi setting.
Plan your lines! Maybe start of with the cam being further away from the skater. For the first Trick / Obstacle, get REAL CLOSE.
Then choose a different path for the camera, meeting the Skater for the next Trick CLOSE AGAIN.
Best Footage with the SUN IN YOUR BACK.
Drive the Camera REAL LOW, just above the ground. Best using a POLE and the camera upside down.
Definitively watch Follow Filming Basics on YT its great.
As you can customize the profiles, lets setup some profiles you will be using most to capture your skating:
neede when your camera is in a fixed position, either on a tripod or someone holding it without actually running around:
Resolution: 4k 120fps
Lens: Linear + Horizon Leveling
Neede when someone is filming you by skating along, or running having the camera close to the action.
resolution: 2.7K 120fps
