Will the MōVI be the ground breaking (dare I say “game changing” LOL) device that some have said it would be? The second video below sure makes a good case for changing the way people shoot and think about shooting some scenes. I'm still not convinced it is the device for every shot, but then again, I'm not making movies all day, every day with a team… since I tend to be a single shooter, it doesn't make a lot of sense for what I do yet.
Burton presents [SNOWBOARDING]
From Mark Cernosia:
Mark here from Burton Snowboards. I'm the in-house video editor and wanted to pass along the link to our teaser for our new snowboarding web series, “Burton Presents.. [SNOWBOARDING]”. We shot the intro here in Vermont on RED Epics using the MoVI. It was a great project and rendered some great results!!
This fall, Burton presents [SNOWBOARDING], a four episode web series highlighting the riding in four distinct environments: Backcountry, Street, Resort, and Women's. Featuring the riding of Jeremy Jones, Mark Sollors, Mikey Rencz, Jussi Oksanen, Danny Davis, Mark McMorris, Mikkel Bang, Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter, Ethan Deiss, Zak Hale, Kimmy Fasani and more riding in locations all around the world. Dropping every two weeks starting 9/13, the videos will be available to download for free on burton.com/snowboarding and snowboarding.transworld.net.
