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.

We're just about ready to invite our riders in. We've got the camera surrounding the bowl. I've got a handheld camera on a pole up above. We've mounted one camera to one of the riders, and I've got a small handheld unit here, a steadicam curve, that I could use as a pistol grip, or pop out and get a free floating camera. Now, I'm going to stay down here in the bowl, but I need to be very keenly aware of my surroundings. So, I'm going to stay to the outside, work my way in, but make sure that I don't get in the way of the riders.
And then shooting from up top, we are going to have additional coverage, so, let's give this a shot, and keep our eyes open so nobody gets hurt.
