The GoPro HERO was practically built for sports, and not just the extreme kind. It's compact, durable, and produces high-quality footage at a high-frame rate—just the kind of camera you want for shooting fast-moving athletes outdoors. Rich Harrington drops in at the local skate park and shows how to shoot grinds, kickflips, and ollies from multiple angles, including a head mount and an under-the-board point of view. He also shows how to plan for other equipment you'll need, like Steadicam rigs for extra stabilization or clamps and poles to capture interesting angles. Plus, learn how to film interviews on location without having to switch cameras, and set your GoPro to capture overcranked footage. Best of all? The techniques shown only require one camera, so if you have a GoPro, you're good to go.

Alright, let's go ahead and get both cameras rolling, good. And, I'm just going to get a little mark here. Marker. That way there is audio on both cameras and a visible sync point, it's going to make it. Get a bit easier to synchronize these cameras during the editing stage. Alright, so just look at me. And one of the things I have to do is get to a similar eye level as my subject, so he's not looking up or down. Alright. So, how long have you been riding? >> I've been riding since about, since I was in high school. I used to do it as a, it started off as a hobby, something to do.
And then I actually became really passionate about it and I've been doing it ever since. >> And what brought you into it? Was it friends? Was it watching someone that inspired you? >> In high school I had a Playstation two and I plated a lot of Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and that also, playing that and I figured, yeah, I want to try that. So, ever since Tony Hawk Pro Skater kind of went off. >> And what is it that you enjoy? >> How do you feel when you are out riding? >> The freedom of it, it's not a team thing, you just do your own thing. It not if you fail it's all only on you.
You don't have to blame it on anybody else. You can blame, you don't get blamed on for anything. It's just, it's the freedom of it and you just do what you want. >> Good. >> And when you're out there, do you notice that skating is something that you know a wide, you know multiple generations can participate in? Are you seeing >> Oh yeah. >> People younger than you? Older than you? >> Oh yeah, definitely, I, I mean, when I'm at the park sometime, I see fathers already teaching their sons. They're like three year old already on a skate boards. It's just this nice thing to pass down to generation, keep the family together.
>> And what's your favorite style of riding? What's things do you enjoy the most? >> I usually enjoy street skating, I'm not much of a vert skater. I like doing technical things like, flip in and flip out, that kind of things. >> Cool. And what would you say to somebody who's thinking of picking up of skate boarding? Any advice? >> I'd say just put your ego aside me, go to skate park and just ride and keep doing it, You don't learn this stuff overnight. >> Now, one of the things we need to do just to make sure that everything worked is actually check back the audio. And because the Go Pro does not have a great speaker on it, I take advantage of 2 things.
We'll disconnect this for a second. And we are just going to take this out of the frame. And what I have attached here is the LCD back pack. On the side of that LCD back pack is an enhanced speaker and a headphone jack. So ideally you are going to pull out a pair of older school style headphones, something that goes over the ear so you can really hear what you got. Take that and plug it in. And then just push the playback button on your device. >> So, how long have you been riding? >> There we go. >> I've been riding since about, since I was in high school. Started out as sort of a hobby, something to do.
>> So my audio sounds pretty good. One of the things to realize is that the Go Pro often has the headphone audio or the speaker audio turned all the way up, and it's a bit prone to sounding slightly distorted when you do that. So make sure you go into the menus and you adjust the volume. Something in the middle so you hear what's there, but if you go through and the audio sounds a little bit off, go ahead and do a test. Make sure the shot sounds good. And then continue with your interview. It's a good idea to make sure you test everything out before you roll the full-length interview.
