Indie-rock band from Nashville And the Giraffe strapped a film camera to the front of a bicycle with some spare rigging equipment found in their friend/director’s garage and some duct tape and made this video. It cost about $200. They rode around LA and out into the desert for some gorgeous shots at the end.
The manufacture of the camera they used is Black Magic Design. As much as we shoot on the bike, me and David are very interested in this setup, because there’s a live preview and it looks like it’s being steadied. The video they produced reminds me of REI’s video from a few years ago when they attached DSLRS to a bike.
Next week, we’re in Austin for our annual bike show. We’ll also pull focus to mobile photography, shooting wonderful stuff like this.
Joining us are Pei Ketron, Dan Rubin, and Jeremy Dunn. We’ll post our regular channels and new ones just for SXSW.
