And now...360 degree video with a little help from your GoPro(s)

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Friday, May 31, 2013,

The GoPro revolution continues.

Have a look a this unique Kickstarter project that will enable you to shoot full 360 degree shots with multiple GoPro Hero 3's in a 3D printed camera rig (see how many trendy tech things I used right there in one sentence!)

Read all about 360Hero here.

I have no idea what I'll do with this but I really really want one..

Everest BASE jump

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, May 29, 2013,

Check out the GoPro camera rig on Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov's helmet. The Russian became the first man to freefall from the top of Everest earlier in May. Awesome footage, especially the reverse shot. We can probably expect to see something on Discovery or Nat Geo soon. Read the original story on

Wonder how they kept the GoPro casings from fogging up or icing over at those temperatures? I've had issues with lenses fogging up on the bike in Lesotho in summer time. Maybe I sho...

Latest edition of Take a nutshell

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, May 29, 2013,

W.C. Fields said "never work with children or animals". Clearly the man had no sense of humour. Because shooting this was a lot of fun. Above and live on YouTube right now is the latest edition of NWU School of Music's Take Note

This clip is probably one of the last news/actuality pieces that I'll be shooting with my aging Panasonic HPX-174. Why? Well you'll just have to wait and see..

It's the month of May again (Warning: opinion piece to follow)

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Friday, May 24, 2013,

The month of May has special meaning for me. This month three years ago I turned in my resignation and left behind everything that represented the security of a safe and stable job at that time. I became self-employed and in doing so I, to my surprise, gained more work satisfaction and enjoyment from life than I would ever have imagined. It’s been a non-stop adventure with ups and downs. Three years later, here’s what I’ve learned:

1) There is no such thing as security. Stable jobs and l...

Put yourself in our picture

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, May 22, 2013,

I recently completed this promo for NWU Vaal Triangle Campus's Faculty of Economic Sciences and IT. It builds on work I've done previously for the NWU. I again relied heavily on my two favourite creative applications: Adobe After Effects and Avid Media Composer.

I approached this one by starting at the end - the word "proud". The Faculty’s initial project brief supplied me with a few terms and phrases used in their current marketing, such as "We are proud and preferred" and "Put yourself i...

Some more GoPro jets

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, May 6, 2013,

What does this have to do with what I do for a living? Absolutely nothing...I just find the visuals insanely cool :)

Small and compact action cameras have made it possible for ordinary people to experience things that would otherwise have resulted in injury or property damage, or time in prison. And thanks to the internets you can now share your images with the world. Check out this cockpit footage shot by a USAF F-16 squadron over Alaska. As always, enjoy before the air force make them take...
