I was attempting to shoot video with a GoPro Hero3+ mounted to a car wheel. A few folks have made some interesting dizzying videos with this technique. Unfortunately mine wasn’t fastened tight enough and flew off at high speed. I wouldn’t recommend doing this.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find the Micro SD card. If you’re interested in what my video might have looked like if the camera didn’t get destroyed in the process check out these:

I recently directed a video with Code and Theory for a product called Outernet. This device can bring the internet to all corners of the globe. Check it out!

Continuing my Timeslice experiments I decided to try something new out. Instead of multiple cameras how about one GoPro camera shooting at 240fps on a slider being thrust as hard as possible? I built a simple camera sliders with some Home Depot parts and came up with the following:

One of the exciting things that has simultaneously sprung up in this GoPro era of video is drone technology – in this case quad-copters. Flown by a single pilot  and sometimes a second operator to control the on-board camera, these tools have exploded on the consumer market in the past few years thanks to a company called DJI. With a stabilizing gimbal one of these copters can help produce some really interesting shots. Here is a collection of shots that my friend Chris and I created using a variety of DJI copters and a GoPro Hero3 Black.

I recently went to Barbados for a vacation. It’s a really beautiful place. Here are some vines:
