See 50 GoPros Work Together To Create The Happiest Matrix Remake Ever
Devin Graham, better known by his internet alias Devin Supertramp, recently created this video (and BTS piece) that utilized over 50 GoPro cameras to capture dogs jumping and playing as if they were Neo dodging bullets in the blockbuster film The Matrix. If this doesn’t make you crack at least a tiny smile, I’m pretty sure you may be Scrooge himself. For a behind-the-scenes look at how this was made, check out the video after the jump.
In addition to the somewhat hilarious but incredibly cute video, the team released a pretty in-depth behind the scenes featurette as well. Using 52 GoPros and a custom made bullet-time machined camera mounting ring, the team was able to get a bunch of dogs to play in and around the cameras while they recorded their every move. The BTS is pretty in-depth, and goes over more or less every aspect of the project: everything from compositing the shots together, to dealing with the corporate sponsorship used in the video and how it was paid for and supported.
You can see more of Devin’s work on his youtube page, but if you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you watch his videos below. Makes me want to get off my couch and do something, that’s for sure!
