Perspective: Orbit | A new DIY project using centrifugal power with your GoPro

| |


New technologies - new possibilities?

In this short movie I've documented my attempt to create a new perspective for filmmakers. As you can see, we have rigged a GoPro to a sort of glider which is held up by two ropes and centrifugal power.



I think there are many other ways to use this rig, but for now I am quite satisfied with the results (changing many locations in one turn, masking the ropes with After Effects or such, ..)

Thanks to my dad, who has made this possible! And in defense of him: he had to hurry up and build this thing in a short amount of time, so that, of course, with more time invested, it would look and work much better :D
