By David Schonauer   Tuesday January 7, 2020

It’s been a decade of action.

Over the past 10 years, action cams  have changed the game when it comes to sports videos. The small, wearable cameras have given athletes and filmmakers the ability to capture amazing tricks with unique angles, noted the Vimeo blog in a recent post, which we highlight today, along with other filmmaking tutorials from around the internet.

You’ll also learn how to shoot an interview with two people at once, how to do a perfect gimbal handoff, how to get great audio without a recorder, how to shoot epic B-roll handheld, how to get pro-quality video from a mobile device, and more.

1. Capture Winter Sports with Action Cams

Wearing the camera on your chest offers a similar POV perspective to wearing the camera on your head. But, notes the Vimeo blog, by filming from a lower angle, you can capture more of your arms and legs, offering another unique vantage. Plus, unlike your head, your chest offers a steadier vantage point.

2. Shooting Video Interviews with Two People at Once

Shooting interview videos with just one person at a time can be a difficult endeavor. When you add the extra dynamic of interviewing two people at once, things can get tricky fast, notes PremiumBeat, which offers a guide to doing dual interviews. You have to worry about framing, lighting, audio, and editing. The trick is to not let any one element overwhelm you.
