Had a blast shooting all the fun dogs and pups! Bishop the Great Dane was a little older than 9 months when I shot this. Music by http://morehazards.com/. Had to take down Ratatat, luckily More Hazards more Heros are letting me use their music for free! Check them out!
I had an itch to try out a GoPro. So of course I bought a pair of them used on craigslist. With a newer version just coming out the week before I got a pretty good deal. In fact, I sold them back for more than I paid for them. They are amazing cameras for their price range and versatility. With attachments you can stick them on just about anything. Though quality is obviously lacking in some spots–mostly due to under-exposing the subjects–it’s a great buy. Can’t wait to find an excuse to buy the newer model with an updated sensor (old sensor sucks at medium to low light, and not as sharp).
I bought a harness for Bishop which I could easily gaff tape the GoPro to. Also made a monopod out of pvc which made a great stick cam. My main goal was to get up close. This is very important as GoPros have very wide lenses, so objects will tend to look distant.
Everything was shot at 60fps and slowed down to 23.976. The super slow motion I got using Twixtor. I didn’t spend a ton of time with Twixtor, so you can see artifacting on some clips.
