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.

Now, besides the official cases from GoPro, there are a ton of third party options out there. One of the ones I really like is the use of a dedicated cage. Now, these are often made out of metal. They're super sturdy, and it makes it really easy to attach additional accessories. It's also a piece of cake if you want to do advanced things like mounting this. When we do things like attach a GoPro to a car or a motorcycle, a cage makes that really easy. It's a really solid piece of equipment, but there are lots of other options out there too, so just explore what you need to get the job done.
Alright. Not that we've got the cameras safe, let's start to shoot, and we'll begin by mounting a camera directly to the skateboard.
