Filming Real Life

IMG_6981

In order to create my body of content, I needed to get my filming hat on! Here is my trusty camera assistant Jessica Scott. I used my Go Pro camera to film recognisable parts of Bournemouth that I was later going to layer with images of the same place taken from social media channels. The reasons for using the GoPro was because of ease of use… I had the handy head cam attachment, and also the top drawer HD quality. The camera itself is a sports camera, meaning it is used for capturing jerky and fast moving objects. It has an inbuilt steadier which takes out the shakiness I would have got with a handheld camera. Additionally from the very first vid (the news feature) I was not impressed with the handheld camera quality at all. So apart from a view funny looks, our afternoon of filming as successful! The merky weather and grey sky was perfect for really emphasising comparisons between online and offline life and how images now on SM are edited to look so much better.
