Whenever you work with an action camera, there’s a process. The general sequence of events goes something like this. You pick up your camera, power it up, point it towards yourself to see the lights flashing and start recording. You point it at what you want it to see and record away. Then when you’re done, you turn it back to you and turn it off.
Eventually, you notice an interesting phenomenon. The beginning and end of much of your footage will feature you. It only lasts a second or two, but it’s candid, honest footage. You’re not putting on a show for the camera, because you know you’re cutting it out in the edit. It’s something I’ve certainly noticed since finally picking up some action cameras a couple of months ago. Commercial videographer Tyce Hoskins turned his GoPro moments into this short film.
