skate edit
This weeks video is a bit different – taking a look at how I like to shoot skate edits. The information is pretty universal for almost all sport videos actually.


You can watch the edit I made here.

1. Use a Top handle
This is great for low shots, and for ‘follow-cams’

2. Add some camera movement
Don’t just shoot on a tripod the whole time

3. Interesting Camera Position
Get creative with where you place the camera

4. Add ‘Filler’ shots
Add some personality, and make the edit more interesting

5. Pay attention to your audio
Good audio will improve your edit so much. Watch out for wind-noise, and don’t mute the clips!
