Motion Tracking

Some motion design created for this edit. We captured this pretty rad shot of Alex skating the Haverfordwest bowl at 6am using the helicam. The morning light across the park was amazing. We thought it would be cool to incorporate the Maverick logo in the scene somehow to use it as an end sequence to the edit.

After some playing around we came up with this. Firstly I stabilized and de-fisheyed the GoPro footage. Then I tracked it using the After Effects camera tracker (that did an excellent job of mapping the motion) I then added the maverick M to the scene and matched its 3D position to that of the surface of the skatepark.

I then used this logo as a alpha mask on the same bit of footage that was slightly scaled up. This created a pretty interesting refraction like effect.

Be sure to check out the edit for some other tracked bits of text at the beginning :)

Aerial PanoDrop | Tahoe, USA

TahoePanoDropFinally got round to trying out a PanoDrop from the sky. I put a GoPro in 0.5 of a sec timelapse mode, and sent the DJI Phantom up. I had it in GPS mode so once I’d found a position I thought would look good I rotated the heli around slowly to capture a selection of images to make up the 360° panorama. From there I stitched the stereographic image as normal. Hopefully I’ll get round to making a few of these :)

Above is the result of a project me and Klingatron have been talking about doing for the past 8 months or so. He is a stencil artist based up in Glasgow, I love the work he does and thought it would be awesome to document the process of him installing one of his pieces.

Minute Nine – Quadcopter Snowboarding

Here it is. My first video using the new DJI Phantom. It was a serious challenge trying to snowboard whilst controlling this. As a first attempt goes, its okay, Lots of room for improvement though. Since this was filmed I’ve made some adjustments to the props and built a shock absorber mount. Future footage should be smoother with a bit of luck. Enjoy
