We had a lot of fun filming the June Promo one summer afternoon, Dan got a full work out treading water for 2 hours, and no equipment was water damaged! We're working on a video for a surf contest we just did for Red Bull, its coming together nicely! We even got some footage featured on Fox 5 news.

Lots of stock shoots happening lately, feel free to contact us if you ever want to be a part of them. Stock shoot Fridays is where its at!

2010 SlamStars

2010 Slamstars Dunk Contest from San Diego Action Media on Vimeo.

This was a fun event that we got to film recently, hope you enjoy our video re-cap of the 2010 Slamstars event! Filmed with a Canon 7d, Canon 5d Mark II & a GoPro HD wide. And the track used in the video was a custom track made by local artists DJ Kechup & Ruslan specifically for the event. Thanks guys for the rad tunes!

We have some projects we are currently working on which you will be hearing more about really soon... but one thing we can let you in on is the up coming Red Bull Rivals surf contest on June 5th in Ocean Beach. Its gonna be rad and we're super stoked to be filming it! Keep checking in with us and we will try and keep this blog as updated as possible.

Be blessed,

The SDAM Team

SDAM Skate @ the Embarcadero

SDAM Skate @ the Embarcadero from San Diego Action Media on Vimeo.

So last Friday our good friend Joel Piper from the band Confide was going to be in town, and seeing that Joel loves skating, we decided that shooting a skate video would be fun! We called up our friend Brennan Milligan, a Student Brand Manager for Red Bull San Diego and picked a spot in SD to shoot. We all kept talking about how sweet of a spot the Embarcadero was to shoot at, we are definitely blessed to live where we do.

We met another skater there named David Butler while we were filming, he was a really rad guy, and we were stoked he wanted to be a part of our little project. We also got to test out a method of shooting with the Canon 7d and a monopod for the skate footage that turned out to be a pretty solid little rig. The only downfall seems to be the fact that all of the footage is shot upside down, but this is easily flipped in post. Needless to say we will absolutely continue to use this rig in the future.

A Friday afternoon Skate session with Brennan Milligan, David Butler, & Joel Piper. Shot with a Canon 5d Mark II & a Canon 7d. Music: "Matt & Kim vs. Beastie Boys" mashup by DJ STV SLV. Shot and edited by Dan Coronado. Assistants Ben Raymond & Ben Peters. Stills shot by Ben Raymond.

Bring You're Adventures Home w/ The GoPro Hero HD!!!

So a few weeks ago we decided we wanted to take our videos to a new level and bring our friends along for the ride on our adventures. After researching a few different ultra mobile video cameras, the GoPro HD was the clear winner. Not only does it offer full 1080p HD video @ 30fps, it also has 960p @ 30fps, and 720p @ 60fps so you can slow those epic video clips down to silky smooth slo-mo. It supports up to a 32gig SD memory card and even has an HDMI Out plug, so you can view your videos on your larger than life TV right after you've lived larger than life outside. With 3 different kits available for Motorsports, Helmet Cam applications, and Surfing the mounting capabilities are virtually endless. Oh and did we mention this little guy comes in a completely water-proof housing up to 180feet?

We decided the Helmet Hero kit would get the most use here at San Diego Action Media. We also picked up, separately, the suction cup mount available in the Motorsports kit.

Recently we took a trip up to Mammoth Lakes, CA to mess around with our new toy on the steeps of Mammoth Mountain. It took a few trial and error runs to really dial it in but at the end of the weekend were very pleased with the results. Check out our new video and see for yourself. We will definitely be using this for great POV clips in our videos from here on out.
