Go Pro? How to record a video of a week in life...
posted by nickrussell to media & arts (3 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
I'm taking part in a Unique Experience at the moment and had the idea to record it for a week, speed it up, and put a week in the life into 5 minutes.
Kind of like the guy who drove across America in five minutes
My initial idea is to acquire a Go Pro and use the interval photo feature to shoot a photo every 30 seconds. Do that from 6A – 11P every day. Put it into Final Cut and add a soundtrack.
Will a Go Pro's battery last for stills all day? If I switch to video, will Go Pro easily integrate into Final Cut?
Will people respond negatively? Especially as I won't be collecting releases? (the purpose is non-commercial).
Has anyone done this before and are there any tips?
