3 GoPro Array Videos That Will Blow You Away

first_imgHave you seen this?! Freeze video in 3D space with a camera array system.  In this post we showcase a few of the better examples of this cool video production technique.A camera array is created when multiple cameras are lined up and are all rolling at the same time.  The result, when actions takes place in the frame, is that the cameras can be cut together to create a super slick action sequence that gives the appearnce that the action is frozen in time…but in 3 dimensional space.The look is reminsecent of the trademark Matrix time freezing effect, except that its done entirely in-camera.  In the past, some photographers have experimented with this technique using still cameras that fire sequential shots that are then assembled in a video editing application.  Here’s one such example that was created using a ring of Nikon DSLRs:Now the GoPro video camera has spawned a new crop of creative pros looking to use the cam to create similar effects.  GoPros are compact, provide decent video quality and are realtively inexpensive.  They seem like a natural fit for making a video camera array.This surfing video was one of the first to utilize this production technique with the GoPro and made quite a splash when it was released in the fall of 2011.  A camera array of 48 GoPros were used to create the look.This next video shows that it doesn’t take a lot of money (or a ton of GoPros) to pull of this look.  With only 15 GoPros in this video camera array the team at Permagrin Films was able to create some Matrix style 360 freeze effects.Parkour to the extreme! Chilean video production company Aerolabs ran some tests on their GoPro array and came away with some pretty slick looking shots.Have you seen this camera array technique utilized in other videos?Share links and your thoughts in the comments below!last_img read more

Beach Boys Make Commitment To Education Organization

first_imgBeach Boys lead singer, Mike Love, announced today the band will be making a year-long commitment to City Year, a national education-focused organization that unites young AmeriCorps members for a year of service in high-need public schools.Beginning in August and for one year, all Beach Boys concerts will highlight City Year through a special video tribute when performing “Be True to Your School.” Beach Boys fans will be encouraged to make a $10 donation to City Year by using their cell phones to text the word “SCHOOL” to 20222. In addition, City Year will have a booth and representatives at concerts which take place in communities where City Year serves. The Beach Boys have been selling out amphitheaters, concert venues and county fairs across the country. The current tour runs through November, but the band will be announcing new dates for 2014 in the coming weeks.“It’s so rewarding to be in a position to help young people find their way through City Year,” said Mike Love. “When I think back on early life before the Beach Boys, I remember those special people who encouraged me to discover my passion and follow my path. Too many kids lose their way, drop out of school, and never realize their true potential. Be True to Your School was a high school anthem in the early sixties, and for me, fifty years later it’s about inspiring our youth to reach for their dream. City Year makes that possible every day, and I’m grateful to shine a spotlight on their incredible work.”Love was City Year’s recipient of the ‘Seven Generations Award’ at its 2013 National Leadership Summit in May 2013. As one of the organizations highest honors, Mike was ‘jacketed’ in City Year’s signature red jacket worn by all 2,700 corps members.“Mike is a true champion of service and education,” said AnnMaura Connolly, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of City Year. “He has a profound compassion for young people, and is committed to doing what he can to help them meet their potential. We are deeply grateful to Mike and The Beach Boys for their extraordinary commitment to supporting the work of City Year AmeriCorps members across the country through this exciting partnership.”As lead singer of the international sensation, The Beach Boys, Mike Love was the first artist to respond to President George H. W. Bush’s call for service as part of the Points of Light Foundation in 1990. Love began StarServe, “Students Taking Action and Responsibility to Serve,” the first Points of Light Initiative which enlisted high profile celebrities to inspire young people to serve their communities. StarServe distributed teachers guides, posters and recognition letters from celebrities to every school in the country — 169,000 at the time — to support teachers and students in creating innovative service projects in their communities.In addition to his leadership of service, Mike Love created the Love Foundation, which supports national environmental and educational initiatives. Love and his wife Jacquelyne co-founded the Lake Tahoe School, which combines cutting edge curriculum, state-of-the-art technology, and environmentally conscious education for students pre-K through eighth grade. Love’s charitable efforts also include joining a group of students from Cathedral Catholic High School led by Father Kelly who volunteered their labor of love, making much needed repairs to the Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate Mexico. After Hurricane Katrina, Love helped the American Red Cross raise $250,000 in just one hour for families affected by the storm. Alongside The Beach Boys, Mike Love partnered with Operation Smile during their critically acclaimed 50th Anniversary tour which benefited children worldwide. He recently performed a benefit concert for The Foundation for the Children of the California’s, which raised one million dollars to support the expansion of three new surgical suites. A longtime supporter of environmental causes, Love was among speakers at the Earth Summit in Rio De Janiero and Earth Day on the Mall in Washington, D.C.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more
