Who Get’s Credit?
I used a GOPRO HD camera to film the stuff on my bike. I got some unique angles, and great stuff. But when I was looking at it roll, it still was just boring footage of someone riding their bike. So, I meshed two images throughout the film to create this look below. One image would be looking at the cyclist, the other image seeing what the cyclist saw. In the two images below I used this technique for the credits at the beginning.
It may not be clear enough in these stills. But the second image in both photo’s are shadow’s of people riding their bike and the main image is me on my bike. I think one reason I filmed a lot of shadow’s is because it’s sunny a lot in San Diego and if you aim the camera to high the sun blow’s out the image. And when you ride you look down a lot and there were all these great shadow’s.
And this last photo of the day is not a double image, but rather just a shot of Josh, a.k.a “Grizzly Adams.” And you can see how when you film up in the sun it blow’s out the background, which makes it perfect to mesh another darker image with the same clip. But in this sequence I didn’t want to cover up Josh’s pretty face.
