I recently used a GoPro for some shots for a video I needed to make for a final project. What I did this time around was use the suction mount to hang the camera from inside of my windshield. By doing this I was able to get a shot of basically the entire interior of my car. So the shots I got looked pretty good but they all start with that fisheye kind of distorting because of the GoPro’s wide angle lens.

Recently I have been thinking of ideas that I would like to make videos for. I have some short documentary ideas, comedy sketches, music videos, and a few other short video that I would like to produce at some point. This got me thinking about my production process and how I would go about making each one of my visions a reality. It takes time and I just would like to share my process and possibly figure out how it differs from others.
