I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts about how we're approaching today's shoot. For the most part, we're going to have lots of cameras in lots of places. Now, there is an important concept called the 180 degree rule which means that we're going to keep all the cameras on one side of the action. Now, we're in a giant circular park. There's a ton of things here we're going to be shooting so we're going to be moving around throughout the day. We're going to do a lot of our shooting while the sun is primarily overhead to avoid the longer shadows and really give us a nice, even exposure.
Fortunately, with most of the GoPro equipment, the cameras are either going to be mounted on our subject or they're going to be on small stands. But if I am going to be using some hand held camera work or I'm going to be using a pole to get some extension or jib-like shots I just need to be mindful where my shadow's going to be. There's not a lot of cloud cover today, so we need to mindful of lens reflections and we could that by monitoring with the GoPro app making sure we don't get any flares or too much sunlight hitting the lens. Will also take advantage of the neutral density filters, to really pull that off.
I'm really excited to get great footage today. But we're certainly going to have some variable lighting conditions. Cause we're going to be out for the whole day shooting. So, I think it's pretty important that we discuss how we're going to review the footage on sight. So, there's no surprises.
