Let's Shoot a Commercial (Part 1 of ?)

Let's make a super awesome Car and/or Motorcycle commercial with GoPro cameras. We've all seen (and made) great GoPro footage from cars, bikes, motorcycles, surfboards and anything else you can attach a camera too so let's take it up a notch! Let's meet and  come up with some innovative shots. We can also incorporate Christopher's copter for some amazing aerial shots.

Let's have a brainstorming session and try to come away with a killer concept. We'll storyboard the shots and plan a shoot date. It'll be fun and we'll all learn something from each other!

Bring some beer and I'll order pizza.

    The idea is out there!
    Race to a restaurant.... "How I meet Your Mother" Season 6 (2010) episode 4 "Subway Wars".. For those with Netflix will be very easy...

    Was great to meet new people and come up with some creative ideas for a shoot. Next steps: story boarding, locations selection and logistics

      Thanks for coming Ark! I'm looking forward to putting this thing together!

    Coming from a film set, might be late... if anyone has a small portable camera (squints)...

    July 14, 2013

  • Tom L

    Google "Novo (modified GoPro)", look at those tele lenses... if anyone had these, we could do shallow depth-of field, perhaps even rack focus...

    July 10, 2013

  • Steven Z.

    I'm sure everyone has seen the Hero 3 promo video a million times on the GoPro website. There are some incredible bike shots that they did around San Francisco that we should reference as well to think about some really interesting angles...I've always thought that being able to capture the inner workings of the engine would be cool and combine that with post production sound.

    July 1, 2013

    • Steven Z.

      Both great ideas guys!

      July 10, 2013

    • Tom L

      Oh, by the way, we'll also need a dozen smiling bikini babes waiving at us in slow motion from the side of the road as we kick up dust with our revving engines...

    I am from south Jersey and I am driving 87 miles to attend this meeting. I will give myself plenty of time to get there but I am unfamiliar with the area so I would like to be able to contact someone if I get lost, etc. My phone number is[masked]

    Does anyone have one of these Glidecams for GoPro?? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/p...­

    July 8, 2013

    • Patrick

      I have one for dslr's but we could weigh the camera down a little to make it work.

      July 10, 2013

  • Tom L

    George, you should be able to park on 26th, 27th or 28th street after 6PM only, maybe 7 PM on some. Check the signs very carefully, there are a lot of restrictions, NYC is a "ticket farm".

    Here's something that I just watched. Looks like this Abe Kislevitz guy (he works for/with GoPro and has some great GoPro videos and tutorials) is doing some series with Ford:

    My hero3 is broken :(. maybe I'll have a new one in time. Either way I have value to bring and I'd love to help out in any way

    July 1, 2013

    • Keith H.

      Hehe. Hey Aton. One of my Hero3's was recently replaced by GoPro. Something weird happened to it. What happened to it? You might be able to get a replacement.

    Anyone have any chest mounts? I was really considering purchasing one this weekend. It's insane how many accessories they have. Just wish the battery life was better haha!

    June 28, 2013

    • Keith H.

      I have one. I could lend it to you if you need it for a shoot.

      July 1, 2013

  • Tom L

    Great idea, do we want to keep it "pure", or can we mix in other cams?

    June 28, 2013

    • Patrick

      Do you have a sample of the effect?

      June 29, 2013

    • Tom L

      In the middle of this charming skateboard video http://www.youtube.co...­ Leticia stands quiet for a few seconds while the background flashes in fast motion/time laps. As part of my feature prep, I would like to see her riding, instead of standing, in front of the same background.
