Super excited about my next video. Just stabbed through a storm door with a camera on my sword. I’ll post the final video soon.
I updated my reel. This time I decided to try something a little different. In the past I've made a film reel and then a separate animation reel. This time I decided to put all of my content into one video, live action, animation, and fx all together. I filmed, edited, and animated all of the clips featured in the reel. Everything is original and came from my quirky mind with help from a few friends here and there. I primarily used programs from the creative cloud to create these videos.
Still not sure about mixing the live action and animation into one video but based on feedback I receive I'll know what to do next time. Next year I hope to feature a few sword fighting clips from a project I've secretly been working on. 😉
The castle in Versailles Kentucky recently held their first renaissance festival. Naturally, I had to go. It was okay. Definitely a little too small to call it great. Awesome location though! Maybe next year they can expand on it. Still having way too much fun with the 360 camera so I filmed with that again. In retrospect I wish I'd taken my osmo pocket instead because the the 360 camera has such a wide fish angle lens which didn't seem ideal for many of my shots. No regrets on getting a tiny planet of a castle though. That photo is a keeper!
Took the insta 360 one x out for a spin again. I'm really impressed with the invisible selfie stick. I was able to get some really unique perspectives with it including a shot similar to that of a drone. If your considering the insta 360 one x you gotta get the selfie stick!
I like to collect unique hobbies so naturally I've joined the ax throwing league. I thought it'd make a good opportunity to use my new 360 camera.
I recently got a 360 camera (insta 360 one x) and wanted to test the stabilization. So naturally I ran with my dog and sister. I then exported the video in both true 360 as well as flat 1080 (overcapture).
I thought the stabilization was pretty darn good, but more than that I was impressed by the overcapture abilities as showcased here:
For a long time now I've wanted to be able to juggle. 6 months ago I decided to stop just thinking about juggling and actually go juggle. I'm in no way a master but I've gotten pretty good at it and I'd been trying to think of some way I could connect that to my hobby of making videos when it hit me... what if I juggled GoPros?
I'm setting a goal for myself to upload one regularly scheduled video a month. Ideally I'd upload more than one video a month but making videos is challenging when life is happening, or you run out of ideas, etc, etc. In order to try and get off on the right foot I've scheduled next month's video to be published on on the 14th day of the 14th hour (2:00). Figured I'd play up the 14 part of ShellyG14.
