03 Aug action sports
As some of you may know, I recently went on a snowboarding trip to Chile. And while I was there I shot a bunch of Super 8. It’s the first time I’ve shot celluloid since college and the first time shooting snowboarding in 3 or 4 years.
Filming snowboarding and skateboarding was my entry into filmmaking so I’m excited to see the advances made in the “action sports” genre. The past couple of years the quality has jumped dramatically. And this isn’t just because of the availability of inexpensive (relatively) HD cameras. The actually production of the videos has become more sophisticated.
Take a look at these two clips and you’ll see what I mean. Granted, one of them IS a Nike commercial, but I think it still holds true.
