Hollywood Shot 1: Camera Crane Shot

Use a prominent fixture in your house like the staircase to create a dynamic crane-style shot. Start the shot with Osmo Pocket in an elevated position with the camera facing downward. Move Osmo Pocket downward while simultaneously moving the camera up using the control sticks to produce a Hollywood-style crane shot.

Hollywood Shot 2: Go Through Objects

Instead of craning down on your objects, you can go over or through them to create another Hollywood-style shot. Have a go at using this technique to produce a cinematic birds-eye view from your balcony or vantage point.

What’s great about this Osmo Pocket setup is that you can create shots that are generally not possible with a standard camera. Create a unique parallax-style shot by passing Osmo Pocket through an object while rotating it at the same time.

Hollywood Shot 3: Atlanta Transition

The Atlanta transition is a super-stylized shot that will add more creativity to your footage. First, lock the camera in FPV mode and find some shooting locations that have a clear starting and stopping edge for your shot. Using a semi-circle arc motion, take a few shots of different locations using the same speed and movement each time.

The edges of the shot form the transition, and you can even speed up the shot to make the transition smoother.
