A crocodile driving, skating and biking through Berlin. Shot with a 360° rig using 6 GoPro Cameras and a 3D printed mount.
Jonas Ginter explain: “In order to breathe life into this little planet and to implement them as a moving picture, I’ve tried a lot of funny things in the last few years: I’ve screwed my cameras on the turntable and nights trying to put thousands of pictures. Has not worked. I have strange designs with mirrors looked at and frustrated found that the absolute nonsense. Piece by piece, came the realization that I can realize 360 degree videos only when I capture the image in one take. So the logical conclusion was: Many cameras. Luckily there GoPro cameras that cover with her fisheye lens a decent viewing angle. So you only need six cameras to record horizontally 360 ° and vertically 180 ° can. Provided you point the camera from exactly. The closer the lenses are to each other and the more overlap produce each camera the better the result. I have unsuccessfully experimented with rubber bands, cable ties, wood and polystyrene. Only with the construction of a support which has been printed in the 3D printer, everything worked satisfactorily. I have this template as a base and used a bit off without the help of any crack of the Hacker Space Bremen and especially without Andree’s and Michael’s involvement, would have been all that nothing.”
