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.

Ideally, before you shoot, you'll take the time to do a location scout. Now, maybe it's a place you visit often. But, even still, be sure to head out and walk around. There's lots of things to think about as you're walking around the venue that you plan to shoot with GoPro. You want to look for safe places to store your equipment, as well as how you're going to get power. You want to make sure you think through all the shots. And, are you going to need an extra set of hands to pull things off? We've got a pretty big crew here today because we're not only shooting the sports, but we're also going to be shooting the behind the scenes.
So make sure you've got places for people to park. I highly recommend you take the time to just walk around with a fresh set of eyes, bring a camera with you just to take some still photos as well, maybe your internet device like your smartphone, and just get familiar with the lay of the land. You really just want to think things all the way through, so when you get there on site, you don't have any surprises. So, we already did that, and I'm excited to go ahead and jump in and start shooting. But we've got a couple things to run through first just so we can go ahead and really pull this shoot off.
