I share my latest videos on Instagram!
What a time to be a filmmaker. Shots that used to take tons of expensive equipment and rigging can now be done much more easily, thanks to some developments over the last year – cameras getting much better built-in stabilization and 360 cameras allowing you to reframe shots in post. This is a compilation of the videos I’ve been working on over the last few months
🎬 Low Budget Fight Scene
The camera is strapped to a chest mount. Shot on Insta360 One X at Clarion Alley Murals
🎬 Low Budget Dolly Zoom
There’s no gimbal in this shot, so I’m relying on the optical stabilization of the camera itself. The dolly zoom effect was done digitally in post production (zoom in while walking backwards, or zoom out while walking forwards). Google “digital dolly zoom tutorial” to learn how. Shot on Insta360 Go at Venice Beach Canals
🎬 Low Budget Stairwell Shot
You might’ve noticed the camera is spinning, but the footage is stable. That’s because I’m using a camera that is doing a bunch of gyro and optical stabilization, made possible because it’s a 360 camera. Shot on Insta360 One R at Hotel Vertigo
🎬 Low Budget Interstellar Shot
This shot is inspired by the famous ocean wave scene in Interstellar. The reverse tiny planet effect was actually edited on my iPhone! With the Insta360 One X app (and corresponding One X camera) at Pacifica beach
🎬 Low Budget Drone Shot
The camera is on a 10-ft stick, and all the tilts and pans you see in camera are actually added in post-production, since the camera is 360 and afterwards you can edit to make it look in any direction. Shot on Insta360 One X + Insta360 extended edition selfie stick at Sutro Baths
This is not an ad for Insta360, even though most of my cameras are from there, thanks to the Insta360 team for sending me the gear!!
