How We Can Help You?
We started to shoot our family videos by GoPro camera and they quickly became popular. With tens of thousands of views on YouTube and an award from GoPro company itself people started to ask us a lot of questions.
That’s why we started this blog. We wanted to provide answers and high-quality information resources to help you solve these problems.
Let’s see what you can find on our blog.
What Equipment Do I Need?
This is the most common question from people who want to start capturing their family video.
Isn’t it overwhelming how many choices you have today? Countless manufacturers, many cameras, and even more mounts. It is hard to pick the right equipment which would serve the best to your personal needs.
What factors to consider to meet your requirements?
We prepared a detailed guide showing you how to choose GoPro camera for family video.
You will quickly discover how powerful GoPro camera is when you mount it on your body or anywhere else and forget about it. This brings traditional filming to a whole new level. You don’t need hands for making a home video anymore. You can do your activity as you would do without a camera. You will only need a few accessories for attaching the camera.
You can find a lot of manufacturers offering a great variety of stuff. But what to choose? What do you really need?
We included also free stuff such as video editing software, manuals and other valuable resources.
Before you buy any equipment do your research carefully. You will find too many cheap manufacturers who sell low-quality stuff. Some cheap accessories serve well, but some can cause falling or even losing your camera. Been there, done that, not fun at all!
We write detailed reviews about all, good and bad equipment, cheap and expensive. We want to show what worked the best and what is better to avoid.
How to Create a Catchy Story?
Even with the best equipment the final result video doesn’t look amazing. Why? Shots might be confusing or boring for a viewer and video isn’t storytelling.
This often happens when people just push the shutter button without any creativity and thinking ahead. We want to show you how to avoid it and be prepared.
We reveal the settings of the camera and what mounts we needed for that particular video. We explain what filming angles we used to make shots interesting. And also how to think ahead about the compelling story which will hook your audience. We prepared a few screenplays for you to give you some ideas and tips.
Forget the best equipment or excellent video editing – the story is the key to making your video remarkable!
How to Edit Your Home Video?
Your raw footage needs editing to look great and more interesting for your audience. Like putting puzzles pieces together to create a big image – your amazing story.
At the beginning, it is overwhelming. What post-processing software to choose? People often complain that:
Video editing programs are expensive and too complicated.
And they are right!
