Embarking on a multi-camera video shoot? We run through 4 tips on how to ‘trick’ your audience by effectively mixing GoPro shots with cinematic footage.GoPro has come along way since the first version was released back in 2004. Until the last few years, the pint sized cameras were use sparingly if not at all in Hollywood and professional productions, but that all changed with the GoPro HERO 3 & 4 series. In fact, GoPros were the go-to camera for documentary films like 2012’s Leviathan, which uses GoPros almost exclusively to capture a commercial fishing boat at sea.Now these nearly indestructible cameras are being fitted to just about everything, giving the audience a point of view we’ve never had before. But the thing to remember: the cinematographer didn’t just strap the GoPro to just anything and let it go. No, they planned and tested certain shots to ensure the cams were being used most effectively.Here are 4 tips that will allow you to integrate your GoPro footage with cinematic footage.Tip #1 CoverageWhether shooting for sports, nature, documentary or feature film, you have to have coverage – a group of shots that give a sense of space that you can cut to. With this in mind, many filmmakers are using GoPros for this purpose, specifically in actions sequences. Below we have images from Need for Speed that show how cinematographer Shane Hurlbut used GoPros attached to cars to give a sense of immersion. Placement of each GoPro was planned out meticulously for each scene and Shane, along with his assistants, carefully placed each camera in order to give the editor as many angles as possible.Image courtesy of Hurlbut VisualsImage courtesy of Dreamworks SKGHaving the option of several angles in post production allows the editor to find footage that will cut seamlessly with the main cinema footage. For a look into capturing this type of coverage, take a look at this video from Movie Maker Magazine as they talk with Wolf Creek 2 cinematographer Toby Oliver about his use of GoPros during stunt sequences for the film.Tip #2 Film FlatThe GoPro has a setting called Protune. The adjustments that can be made here are minimal, but really effective. You can adjust white balance, ISO, sharpness and exposure. On top of this, you can set the color to flat which really captures shadows and highlights, but gives you an image that can be matched to your cinema footage through standard color grading processes. The visually stunning Watchtower of Turkey by Leonardo Dalessandri uses the GoPro HERO 3 in conjunction with the Panasonic GH3 and we can see a nice integration between GoPro and cinema footage through successful grading and capturing a flat image.Tip #3 Narrow and WideWhen setting your format, whether it be 1080, 2.7k or 4k, you have choices. These options allow you to capture video in either a narrow, medium or wide angle. Using a narrow or medium angle will allow you to mix your footage more seamlessly in with cinema footage (Camera A), but even using 4k with the wide angle will work in many cases. As Wolf Creek 2 cinematographer Toby Oliver said…If you have a 4K file in post you can zoom in to find a tighter frame and lose the fish-eye feel, without sacrificing resolution.In films such as 2013’s Into the Mind, the crew used the GoPro HERO 3 alongside RED Epics and utilized both the narrow and wide angle feature. By using the GoPro they were able to capture intimate timelapses as well as in-your-face action sequences. While the wide angle lens will usually queue the audience to the presence of a GoPro, limiting its use can be extremely effective and work alongside cinema footage without issues.Tip #4 Let’s Clean Things UpAnother way to effectively integrate GoPro footage with cinema footage is to run post processes other than grading. For example, the GoPro footage shot in Need for Speed was run through an After Effects Plugin called Dark Energy by Cinnafilm. This plugin allows for noise and film grain reduction or additive. Dark Energy was used specifically to clean up the GoPro footage and to bring in the natural grain look that is closer to what the Canon C500 and Alexa footage that was shot for the rest of the film. Currently though, Dark Energy is only available as a plugin for the Windows version of After Effects.There are other noise reduction solutions that are compatible with Mac OSX such as RE:Vision Effect’s DE:Noise or GenArts Sapphire, which has a grain removal. There’s also Neat Video which ‘packs a powerful punch’.

Deccan Chargers shocked title contenders Mumbai Indians beating them by 10 runs in an IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Score | PhotosThe Chargers defended a modest score of 135 for six restricting the home team to 125 for eight in 20 overs. This was the second successive defeat for Mumbai who remain on 16 points while Deccan now have eight points from 12 matches.It was the expensive 20th over bowled by Munaf Patel that changed the complexion of the match. The India speedster gave away 23 runs which included a six hit by Shikhar Dhawan (27 not out 18 balls, 2×4, 1×6) and four consecutive boundaries hit by Man of the match Amit Mishra (18 not out, 6 balls, 4×4 and 1/18 from 4 overs).The final over also saw an ugly altercatyion between Munaf and Mishra after the latter was hit for boundaries. Both hurled choicest expletives at each other and it required the intervention from umpires to stop things from getting uglier.From 112 for six in 19th over, the Chargers moved to 135 for six.On a track that offered big turn to the spinners, Mumbai Indians batsmen including skipper Sachin Tendulkar (37, 42 balls, 3×4) were not in their element as they played as many as 60-odd dot balls.After part-time spinner Jean-Paul Duminy got rid off Aiden Blizzard cheaply, Ishant Sharma celebrated his return to the Indian ODI team dismissing the in-form Ambati Rayudu (2) and the dangerous IPL specialist Rohit Sharma (4).Losing three quick wickets with only 25 on board, Mumbai couldn’t really recover on a pitch where strokemaking was difficult.advertisementIf Ishant provided breakthroughs up the order, little-known Madhya Pradesh medium pacer Anand Rajan removed T Suman (14) and Tendulkar and Kieron Pollard (24, 13 balls, 3×4, 1×6) to return with figures of three for 27 from four overs.Pollard and Harbhajan Singh (17 not out) tried their best but it was a tall-order after the top-order put up a lousy show.Hyderabad inningsChoosing to bat first after winning the toss, Chargers got off to a poor start after Lasith Malinga castled opener Michael Lumb off the second ball for a duck. The wooden spooners in the competition never really got the momentum back.Sunny Sohal (20 in 22 balls) and captain Kumar Sangakkara (27 in 28 balls) added 39 runs for the second wicket in 7 overs but the Chargers lost three wickets for 24 runs in the middle overs and could never step on the pedal.Dan Christian (18 in 23 balls) and Dhawan, surprisingly coming lower down the order, added 28 runs for the sixth wicket. But it was the 30 runs that Mishra and Dhawan added in only 1.4 overs gave the total a semblance of respectability.For Mumbai Indians, Dhawal Kulkarni was the pick of the bowlers grabbing three for 26 while Malinga, Harbhajan Singh and Kieron Pollard also got a scalp apiece. Munaf, who had taken five wickets in the previous game, went wicket-less while giving away 37 runs.The Chargers had a dismal beginning when the left handed Lumb, playing his first game, was bowled neck and crop for a duck by Malinga off the second ball he faced when trying an ill-advised heave.Sohal, who opened with Lumb, showed his aggressive intent by swinging Munaf Patel for a six over mid wicket in the second over but overall the Mumbai bowling attack kept the rival batsmen under wraps with the first six over yielding only 32 runs.Skipper Sangakkara, the Chargers mainstay in batting and their highest run-getter, looked in good touch as he effortlessly lofted Harbhajan Singh for a straight six with perfect timing and then smacked Dhawal Kulkarni over the medium pacer’s head for a four.But Kulkarni exacted revenge soon by dismissing the rival team’s captain, Kieron Pollard again bringing off a superb catch by running backwards at cover point to make Chargers 39 for two.The 50 came up in the 9th over but with the run-rate not up to the mark Sohal departed in trying to up the pace caught by Andrew Symonds in Pollard’s first over.The under-performing Jean-Paul Duminy started encouragingly by cutting Harbhajan Singh for a four before he was deceived by a sharp turning ball from the off-spinner and was stumped to leave Chargers at a difficult 58 for 4 in the 11th over.The next three overs, with Malinga back into the attack, produced just 18 runs and with the scoring rate not up to the desired levels, Bharat Chipli tried to get after Kulkarni and paid the penalty by mistiming a pull-shot and was caught by Suman at short mid wicket.At 77 for 5 with only the last few overs remaining, the Chargers were looking headed to a score well short of the desired level on what appeared to be a good track.advertisementThey added 53 runs in the last five overs to give their bowlers a decent chance of defending.-With PTI inputs
