Screw my friend. I was playing a 1v1 and just incase anything cool happened I had a friend of mine film it, so I could send it to that new "Best Plays TV" channel. Before we started I had told my friend "Keep the camera on me at all times". So the game starts, and it's slow at first. I eventually get to a can. I decided to try something he wouldn't expect. I jumped straight up and one balled.


It gogged him from almost the whole fields length. I was pretty hype. Just to find out, that the camera was pointed at my friend when I made the shot. No top play for me, because apparently some instructions just aren't clear enough....
AIso, I'll upload the video to YouTube anyway and link it here when I do.

Happens to all of us. I've got some videos of our speedball games from my phone that I let somebody else use. Garbage, complete garbage. Shaky, forgetting it is in his hand, forgetting which angle to hold it, etc. Pretty much everything a camera man shouldn't do, he did. Never again does he get to hold the camera.

I love standing behind a camera, it's really one of the  places i belong. Altough, when i do, i turn into Stalin in a figurative sense. Since i have this grand vision in mind of how the video should turn out. One time i was supposed to play the bad guy in a small movie project and when i was done with all of my scences i got to work the camera. Even when i was just a camera i just assumed control and at first started just suggesting camera angles and such, but evntually it even got to the point where i directed the acots. Guess that's why we stopped making home movies a few years ago. But it'll be interesting running a one man show with the community paintball videos. 

 

But i get what you are saying man, one of those times when if want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

I love being behind the camera. I'm actually part of my schools film program which is one of the best in the state. I totally understand what you mean about the "grand vision", I have that too.

 

Might upload the video later today.

I didn't have my DSLR on me, so it was just my phone. No way in hell would I let one of them use my DSLR to film.

I played last weekend. Played a few games with the go pro for the first time. 

 

One game had a run through, 3 kills. Didint turn it on.

Another game I won a 2v1 did not turn it on.

Another game I gunfought someone in the same bunker as me. Did not turn it on. 

 

It sucks even more when you blame yourself.

Unless he was standing right behind you, and could see your friend as well, it would have been a stupid shot anyway. Nobody cares to see some guy standing at a bunker pop up and shoot 1 shot.

Is he a photographer or photography enthusiast?
Has he studied photography or had any amount of practice with it?
Are you giving him any incentive to do a really good job with the camera?
Did he even say if he was any good with a camera in the first place?

If you're unable to answer yes to any of those questions, why are you expecting anything of decent quality?

You can't hand some random dude a violin and expect him to play Mozart. Photography/Cinematography are learned skills; they're not inherent.

He claims he wants to go into film after he graduates HS. Which is why I chose him.
